About The Tournament     

An initial mailing of the league kit went out to many YABA associations in June 2002.  As it was in the 2001-02 Coca Cola tournaments, there are still four divisions for 12 & above (Boys’ and Girls’ - Handicap and Scratch).  Athletes will again advance after the state/provincial/ zone finals.  The Handicap Division winners will still advance to the 2003 Pepsi Cola Youth Bowling Championships International Finals July 21-23, 2003 and the Scratch Division winners will now advance to the 2003 Junior Gold National Championships July 12-18, 2003  Both will be held in St. Louis, MO.

The Pepsi Cola Youth Bowling Championships, sponsored by PepsiCo. Inc. USA® and conducted by the Young American Bowling Alliance, is an opportunity for your area's athletes to become involved in the premier international tournament for youth bowlers.  To date, the Youth Bowling Championships (previously Coca Cola YBC) has awarded over $2,460,000 in scholarships, through the Scholarship Funds Program and the International Finals.  It is estimated that at least $255,000 in scholarships will be awarded this season through the State/Provincial/Zone competitions.  By conducting the league level competition you are giving your bowlers an opportunity to help finance their education.
The Pepsi Cola Youth Bowling Championships begins at the league level.  The tournament is a benefit of membership to all YABA Youth Division sanctioned bowlers (no longer an upper age limit of 21).  For just being a member of YABA, athletes receive the opportunity to:

Tournament Overview     

The Pepsi Cola Youth Bowling Championships begins with league level qualifying.  Bowling centers with YABA sanctioned Youth Division leagues are automatic qualifying sites.  Since the tournament is a benefit of a membership, there is no entry fee at this level.

League level qualifying has been completed and many of the 11 & Under zone tournaments have been completed.    Most zone tournaments for the 12 & over group will be held in late February.  

Qualifying competition was held in divisions based on the bowler's age as of August 1, 2002.  The divisions are:
