The CSU Bowling Club competes throughout the school year beginning in Late August and ending in April. In the past, we've been to Chicago, St. Louis, San Francisco and Sacramento. We currently attend tournaments in Wichita and Las Vegas, as well as the USBC Colorado State Tournament. Both men and women compete in our club, and our teams have won 3 championships in the past: 1994 Men's ACU-I Champions and 1995 & 1996 Women's ACU-I Champions.
CSU Bowling has 2 clubs: a casual, and a competitive team. The casual team benefits from the practice discounts that the team receives at Horsetooth Lanes in Fort Collins, and practices with the team on Tuesdays. The competitive team competes in Tournaments, practices Saturdays and Tuesdays, and is coached by our two coaches. Although there is no formal, open tryout, on September 9th of each year, a team meeting is held where everyone is introduced and given information about practice. If you can bowl, you can compete! Most tryouts, if held, are done so on20an individual basis, and can be set up by contacting any of the four officers on the team. Contact information can be acquired from the Sports Clubs office. All members are carried on the roster no matter what their average, but an “A” team will compete at tournaments with a substitute list. Cost to be a member of the Bowling Club is $50 per semester for the casual team and $75 per semester for the competitive team. Dues pay for tournament fees and hotel rooms, and separate costs such as plane tickets and food will be paid for individually. All equipment is provided by the bowler (ball, shoes, bag, etc.).
Due to the flood in 1997 at Colorado State, the on campus facility was destroyed so practices are held off campus.
