why-i-certify

We invited USBC bowlers of all ages from across the United States to tell us why they certify. For these bowlers and so many like them, bowling certified is about much more than paying dues so they can bowl in tournaments. It’s their way of saying I’m for bowling.

why_we_say_certified

AT USBC, WE USE THE TERMS “MEMBER” AND “CERTIFIED BOWLER” INTERCHANGEABLY.

In the past, we also used the term “sanctioned.” Today, any dues-paying bowler becomes a member of USBC and can proudly call themselves a certified bowler. If you’ve noticed us using the word “certified” more lately, that’s because we believe it does a great job of communicating what USBC is all about.
