SPONSOR INFORMATION COMING SOON!


Welcome to the 2018 California Pepsi USBC Youth Championships.  To date, the Pepsi Youth Championships nationwide has awarded more than $6 million in scholarships — it is estimated that at least $500,000 in scholarships will be awarded nationwide this season alone. By conducting the league level competition you are giving your bowlers an opportunity to help finance their college education. California awarded $40,000 in scholarships last year and has awarded over $903,801 since 1998.

For the 18th year in a row, www.BowlersParadise.com will be sponsoring this event along with www.EliteBowling.com. Also each pro shop/center in the eight hosting Pepsi District Finals will be donating a bowling ball for our fundraising raffle at each site to help us raise more scholarship dollars. Please visit these businesses and THANK them for their generous contributions by shopping at their establishments!

Thank you for your support and participation in one of the largest scholarship events in California.  Last year we worked extremely hard with your help in raising funds so that we could award $50,000 in scholarships!  With the rising cost of education, this tournament strongly benefits many young bowlers on their way to a promising future.  Good luck and we'll see you out on the lanes!
