Joint International Bowling Campus


Annually, select TNBA youth will have the opportunity to train as “Olympians” at the USBC International Training and Research Center. This multi-day event began as a project meant to open pathways for increasing minority participation in elite levels of competition. This is an opportunity for our highly skilled athletes to travel to the Olympic designated training facility for a 2.5 day session with Team USA Coaches and staff members.  Opportunities like this increase the visibility of our TNBA youth.


2016 TNBA Youth Weekend at the International Research and Training Center

The TNBA Youth Weekend event took take place in Arlington, Texas at the International Training and Research Center on August 18 through 20, 2016.

The event began with an orientation on Thursday evening (8/18) and the educational sessions end on Saturday evening (8/20).  Airfare and lodging was paid for selected athletes.

The success of this program was nationally demonstrated when two alumni, Jadee Scott-Jones and Gazmine Mason earned spots on Junior Team USA  during the Team USA trials held in Las Vegas. They were the top youth finishers in the entire field. We have many other individuals who are benefiting from this additional training.
