Entries for the 2017 Section 3 Bowling championships are now being accepted. Some technical issues with the registration platform caused some delays opening up the registration, but those issues have been resolved.
The team championships will take place on Sunday, February 5th at Strike-N-Spare lanes starting at 9am. Coaches and athletic directors were emailed on Friday, January 27th and advised they should complete the online registration form as soon as possible. While many teams may still have regular season matches to complete, they may still enter the tournament as there is no requirement to have completed your regular season.
New this year is a feature that allows coaches to manage their entry online. Coaches will setup a username and password when they fill out their entry blank. After submitting their team’s registration, coaches now have the ability to login to the registration system and make changes to their team’s registration. IE: add/remove/change of a player, order additional lunches or t-shirts, etc.
