Entry Fee

All registered YBC bowlers are invited to compete in the League and/or House Qualifying Round of the YBC Hi-Low Doubles Championships. Participating YBC Programs will be charged an entry fee of $10.00 per registered bowler with Bowl Canada/Bowl Ontario Tenpin. E.g., If you registered & paid for 10 bowlers with Bowl Canada you would remit $100.00, if you registered & paid for 25 bowlers with Bowl Canada you would remit $250.00. At minimum 50% of the entry fee will go towards scholarships, with the other 50% going towards lineage ($6.00/game) & expenses.

Optional Qualifying Procedure

Each Program Director has the option to decide whether to conduct a league qualifying round or advance those who have entered the tournament directly to the House Finals providing the following conditions are adhered to:

 

  1. All registered YBC bowlers are eligible to compete in the League and/or House Qualifying Round.

 

  1. Averages to be based on a minimum of 12 games played at November 4, 2023.

 

  1. The highest average bowler in the league in each of the 3 age categories is to be paired with the lowest average bowler. The second highest average bowler is to be paired with the second lowest average bowler and so on, until all of the bowlers have been paired.

 

  1. In the event that an odd number of bowlers entered the tournament, the last highest average bowler is to be paired with the remaining lowest average bowler.

 

EXAMPLE (BASED ON 21 ENTRIES)

 

Number the Bowlers from 1 to 21 according to their average with the highest average bowler being #1.  The #1 bowler (highest average) is paired with #21 (lowest average).  The #2 bowler is paired with the #20 bowler, and so on.  This will leave the #11 bowler without a partner.  This bowler shall now be paired with bowler #10 thus giving bowler #10 two (2) partners.

NOTE:  Should both teams qualify to advance to the House round, the replacement bowler must be the highest average bowler in order of finish in the round.

The League Qualifying Round will take place during regular league play from November 4, 2023, to January 14, 2024 and will consist of the first twelve (12) consecutive games. The top 50% of the teams who have entered in each division (Bantam, Junior & Senior), who have beaten their combined average by the most pins (or closest to their team average) shall advance to Phase 2, the House Finals. In the event of a tie for the last qualifying position, the team beating it’s average by the most pins in the final week shall receive the higher placing. Bowl off scores are permitted. However, if a bowler who has paid the entry fee misses a game or games, 95% of the bowler’s average shall be used as a substitute.

All advancing teams from the League Qualifying Round will compete in the House Finals to be completed by Sunday, January 14, 2024, with the exact date and time to be set by each bowling centre.

 

Three (3) games for all divisions with the team(s) who have beaten their combined average by the most pins, (or closest to their average) in each of the three (3) age divisions advancing to Phase 3, the Zone Finals.

 

To provide an incentive for centres with large entries in the tournament, a league has the option of advancing additional teams to the Zone Finals based on the following ratio:

  • 1 to 5 entries per division – 1 team will advance
  • 6 to 10 entries per division – 2 teams will advance
  • 11 to 15 entries per division – 3 teams will advance
  • And so on in increments of 5

 

In the event of a tie for the final qualifying position, the team beating its average by the most pins in the final game shall advance to the Zone Finals.  Each bowler competing in the House Finals is required to pay the prevailing lineage as determined by each centre.
