The REGISTRATION FORM for NHS Bowling for 2017-18 is at this link:

All those participating in any NHS team sport must complete an NHS Sports (Fall) Registration Form for bowling that is returned and on file at the NHS Athletics Dept. WE NEED TO HAVE ALL PARTICIPANTS REGISTERED BEFORE OCTOBER 18th, so that we have safety information for students bowling at BOR and the AD's office will print off the forms for the coach(es) on that morning. PARTICIPANTS GOING TO WED. October 18th PRACTICE MUST HAVE THIS ON FILE WITH THE A.D.'S OFFICE ALREADY.  If not, I have instructed BOR to charge full price (the cost for someone not a member of the team) until the problem is rectified. This is a safety issue. Further, all those who are going to accept membership on this team must first accept the responsibility of their commitment to others. OUR KICKOFF BOWL-A-THON IS SUNDAY, October 29th, starting at 1:00. This is a terrific opportunity for the team to raise the funds it needs for the year, and it is a great opportunity for students to bring their friends and introduce them to the possibility of bowling with the NHS Bowling Team and Club. Keep in mind - Your teammates are relying on your availability on the date(s) of any scrimmages (on Wednesdays) and statewide tournament(s), on two different Saturdays, dates TBA. As this is an official Newington High School team, although also a club, it is a commitment that you are making now to all of us that YOU WILL BE PRESENT FOR THE TOURNAMENT(s) and that you will do your best to make team practices (though you will still be allowed to make up practice time on your own time at Bowl-O-Rama, so be sure to check in with the desk as an NHS Bowling Team member). 

All students who wish to participate must either take Bus P (used to be Bus H, now it is Bus P) from the high school to BOR on formal practice days (generally only Wednesdays until just before the tournaments in late Winter/early Spring, and wait there to get started until the coaches arrive and practice begins. Students may also choose to have rides from parents or other designated transportation known and approved by the parent/guardian drop them off at BOR as well. As we cannot provide a bowling alley at the high school, these are the very best solutions.

For the present, Bowl-O-Rama has been gracious enough to allow preliminary and formal practices for any and all interested participants, regardless of bowling ability, for the same low price. They are continuing to be committed to allowing us to get the same low price for each practice: shoe rental and one hour (sometimes an hour and a half) of practice @ $6.  However, practice outside of this will be $1 a game for NHS Bowling members only; friends who are not joining the bowling team but want to go to bowl with you would need to pay the normal price for lanes and shoes. 

This year, we are excited to be able to offer some bowling improvement options for all members, including some tips from bowlers, like a former PBA bowler, and a former PBA bowler who has also been our team's Assistant Coach, Mr. Dave Weidlich. 
In time, we will be having official tryouts and designating specific teams for the tournament. (TBA).  

Even though the NHS Bowling Team is a club presently, it should be kept in mind that students who participate are expected to maintain good grades and represent the bowling team favorably by their appearance and behavior, in school and outside of it. With practice, willingness to learn and take direction, discipline and commitment, the NHS Bowling Team has a bright future ahead of us; we are already winners once we have made the commitment to ourselves to achieve. Last year our own William Weidlich took the First Place crown at the CIAC Singles' Bowling Tournament, held in Fairfield, CT. Our NHS Bowling A Team took Third Place in the CIAC Team Tournament for the second year in a row.  Who knows where we'll go from here? It is your choice if you'd like to be a part of it.
