Unified Bowling Continues to Grow
The 2023 Unified Bowling season includes nine (9) new teams to the sport with a total of 49 schools (1 coop) participating across the state of Kansas. It is another exciting year for Unified Bowling!

-Members of the Unified Bowling team are not subject to the limitations detailed in Buffer Week.
-All competition will follow Baker format with 1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th frames bowled by the partner and 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th frames bowled by the two athletes.
-Team - "Trio teams" may be comprised of up to five players, three are designated as competitors and the remaining two as substitutes. The three competing students must include two athletes and one partner. Teams may be co-ed.

Regarding Outside Competition Rule 22
Per Executive Board action, Unified Bowling is a different activity from interscholastic bowling, so students may participate in competitions (leagues and tournaments) while on the school Unified Bowling team without violating Rule 22, Outside Competition.

During the regular season, a school determines how many teams they will maintain. During postseason (regional/state) only one team will be entered in and represent the school in competition. No student may participate in more than four Unified competition days during the regular season, exclusive of regional/state.

Regional Bowling Assignments
There will be four regional bowling sites this year. We hope to continue to advance the top five teams to state from each regional. We are working to finalize those details with state sites. Stay tuned! Regional assignments will be released as soon as host sites have been finalized.

Unified Bowling State Tournament
The site for the Unified Bowling State Championship has been set for Topeka-West Ridge Lanes in Topeka, KS. The date is set for Tuesday, November 14, 2023, and the host school is Seaman High School.
