The Georgia Youth Bowlers Tour (GYBT) was started in 2006 by three volunteer dads: Chris Wunch, Jeff Halen, and Mike Bonzek. The first event had 5 participants. The most recent event had 54.
Prior to the GYBT less than 5 Georgia youth bowlers had attended the Junior Gold National Championships. Over the past 5 years we have averaged 120 attendees to this prestige event.
The GYBT is an integral part of the Georgia State USBC with all events certified by the USBC headquartered in Texas. All scholarships are awarded through the USBC administered SMART program. The SMART Account # is 10962
The purposes served by the GYBT include:
We are extremely proud that many youth who participated with the GYBT have gone on to successful experiences educationally and athletically by bowling at the collegiate level.
Over 100 athletues who have bowled with GYBT have gone on to bowl at the collegiate level at over 50 different institutions.
