Angie Colip: Thoughts turn to summer leagues

Spring has finally sprung. Well, at least it is beginning to look and feel like spring.

Most leagues have finished up, with only a few left still standing. So now is time to think about the shorter summer leagues.

This year, Cooper’s is offering a wide range of programs for all ages. Starting with the young, there is an eight-week program for 3- to 6-year-olds. The 8 for 8 Program is only $8 per week beginning Monday, May 13, at 6:30 p.m. and every child receives a free bowling ball.

There is also an 8 For 8 Adult/Youth Doubles League starting Saturday, May 18, at 2 p.m. Eight dollars a week for eight weeks and the youth will receive a free bowling ball, too.

The Youth Scramble is for 10- to 19-year-olds beginning Monday, May 13, at 6:30 p.m. This is a two-person team for 12 weeks.

The Youth Premiere Scratch League is a competitive 13-week program about bowling on challenging lane conditions. Monday, May 13, at 6 p.m. is the start date. They will bowl 13 weeks at $14 per week with a scholarship roll-off at the end of the season.

There is a 9-Pin No-Tap Doubles league beginning Tuesday, May 7, at 7:30 p.m. This is a two-person team for 13 weeks with a $600 first-place prize based on 20 teams.

Mixed Nuts starts Wednesday, July 3. This is a four-person team for 10 weeks at $10 per week.

Triple Threats is a three-member team for adults beginning Thursday, May 16, at 7:30 p.m. Twelve weeks of competition for $12 per week with payoff for all teams at the end of the season.

Pick-Your-Partner adult/youth will start on Wednesday, May 22, at 6:30 p.m. for 14 weeks. The cost is only $10 per team.

An exciting new league is the Baker Battle. A baker format for teams of three to five bowling every other week for four weeks. The cost is $45 per team with the first-place team receiving $500 and second receiving $250 based on 12 teams.

The Senior Silver Stars is a two-member team. This is a handicap league with colored pin prizes each week. Eight dollars per week for 13 weeks with a start date to be determined.

Put two sports together in this year’s Golf and Bowl. Put a four-member team together, golf nine holes of best ball, have a lunch buffet and bowl three games of best frame bowling. Prize money awarded to the top two teams. Check with the center for more information.

As you can see, there are a variety of leagues to choose from. Pick the one that best fits you and enjoy a great summer of short season bowling.

Next week will be my last column for this season. If you have any information you would like to get out there, please get it to me before Wednesday so that it will make into Friday’s column.
