BCAW bowling centers will be in the spotlight when Green Bay and several surrounding regional Wisconsin cities will host the 2025 Junior Gold Championships.

The major national youth tournament administered by the United States Bowling Congress will run July 11-19, 2025 at these eight BCAW member centers: The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley, Buzz Social and Riviera Lanes (Green Bay); Bowlero Super Bowl Family Entertainment Center (Appleton); Bowlero Sabre Lanes (Menasha); Dale’s Weston Lanes (Weston); Revs Bowl Bar & Grill (Oshkosh); and Rolling Thunder Lanes (Neenah).

Thousands of the nation’s top youth bowlers and their families will converge on the area. This will mark the first time the Junior Gold Championships have been held in Wisconsin.

The Junior Gold Championships is an annual national tournament for the United States’ top male and female youth bowlers. Bowlers in six age/gender divisions (U12 Boys/Girls, U15 Boys/Girls and U18 Boys/Girls) compete for scholarship prizes and possible berths on Junior Team USA.

In addition to the Junior Gold Championships, all USBC Youth members may compete in the Youth Open Championships, which will be conducted in Green Bay during a similar timeframe as the Junior Gold Championships.

“We’re ecstatic to have this prestigious youth bowling event here in Wisconsin and showcase this group of BCAW member bowling centers,” said BCAW Executive Director Roger Dalkin. “We know that our outstanding BCAW proprietors will do an incredible job hosting this major tournament.”
