1. The tournament is open to all male and female bowlers who were 21 years of age or less as of August 1, 2018. PBA members are not permitted to participate. This is a SCRATCH tournament.

2. FORMAT:
QUALIFYING ROUND
: All entrants will bowl 12 games in the qualifying round (two 6-game blocks) on Saturday, August 10, 2019. Squads will begin at 10:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M. All bowlers must compete in both squads. Thirty-two bowlers will qualify for the double-elimination finals of the tournament. The top four female bowlers and the top four male bowlers will qualify for the finals, along with the next highest twenty-four bowlers, regardless of gender.

FINALS: The 32 qualifying bowlers will return on Sunday, August 11, 2019 at 10:00 A.M. Bowlers will compete in a two-game match against another bowler with the winner of each match being determined based on total pinfall for the two games. In the event of a tie, a 9th and 10th frame roll-off will be held to determine the winner. After each round, opponents will change and a new two-game match will take place. Bowlers will remain in competition until he/she loses a second match, at which time he/she will be eliminated from the tournament. After five rounds of matches, six bowlers will remain (one of which will be undefeated). These bowlers will then advance to a modified step-ladder with the undefeated bowler being the top-seed and the other bowlers being placed based on their total pinfall.

3. Check-in and drawing for lane assignment will begin at 9:00 A.M. on Saturday, August 10, 2019.

4. The entry fee is $115 per bowler for entries paid by August 7, 2019. Entry fee for bowlers paid after August 7, 2019 is $125. Entries will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Walk-in entries will be accepted at the tournament as space permits.

5. Dress Code: All bowlers must wear shirts with collars and sleeves. Mock neck shirts (from tournament sponsors only) will be permitted. Bowlers are not permitted to wear hats or other headgear, ripped or torn clothing, basketball shorts, clothing with offensive language or graphics, or any apparel which the tournament director feels is inappropriate. Smoking is not permitted BEFORE, DURING or AFTER the tournament. Proper behavior is expected at all times. Only those bowlers who are still in competition and tournament officials will be permitted in the settee area.

6. Scholarships will be awarded based on the final standings of the tournament. A minimum of one scholarship prize will be awarded for each four participants. The first place scholarship prize is GUARANTEED at $2,000. A minimum of six scholarship prizes ($250-200-175-150-125-100) will be awarded to U15 bowlers (entrants born 8/1/2003 or later). U15 bowlers will earn either the prize for their final position in the main prize list OR the U15 prize list, whichever is higher. The Buddies Pro Shop Junior Open has awarded between $7,500-$10,000 in scholarships in each season since 2003. All scholarship earnings will be held by the Junior Bowlers Tour until such time that the bowler has completed at least one semester of college and has attained a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0. Winners must claim scholarship earnings by age 23.

7. All rules not specifically covered will be governed by the rules of the Junior Bowlers Tour. The tournament director reserves all rights regarding all rules and the operation of the tournament.
