2014 Senior Open Championships,
Oct 19-22, Nashville, TN
June 27, 2014
Join us for the 2014 NSL National Championships. We play in 7 divisions from beginners to the very best senior virtual bowlers. Play the Nintendo Wii or the XBOX bowling games. We consider both systems as part of the NSL family. Play begins the week of Aug 11.
Teams are made up of 4 senior bowlers. A team may have up to 4 substitutes. We place teams in divisions equal to their level of ability and then place them in conferences with 7 other teams. Teams play each team in their conference one time - a total of 7 games. The better teams advance to up to 3 weeks of playoffs. The playoff format is like the NCAA Final Four - you win, you play on. You lose, you are finished.
Each team has a coach - generally the Activities Director. A player may also be the coach. The coach posts the teams scores on the NSL website each Thursday by 9PM. Scores are calculated and results are posted on Friday at 9AM. The NSL keeps individual and team statistics and distributes awards to conference winners and to division winners. Awards also go to NSL Coach of the Year and NSL Bowlers of the Year.
The fee to participate is $150 for a community. A community may have as many teams as they want.
July 13-19 - NATIONAL SENIOR VIRTUAL BOWLING WEEK. Join us in our efforts to support Alzheimer’s/dementia research. In 2013, our first year, we had over 1,200 senior participants and raised $6,500. The goal for this year - $7,500. Any senior community or senior bowler may participate. You don’t have to be a member of the NSL bowling community.
HOW IT WORKS - Each community has a ‘coach’. The ‘coach’ asks the seniors in the community to participate. Even those who do not regularly bowl should be ask. Each bowler contributes $5 to the cause. NOTE - It is OK if a bowler does not contribute - our mission includes getting as many seniors involved as possible. The ‘coach’ collects the funds. Make checks payable to National Senior League or collect cash. Send proceeds to Dennis Berkholtz, NSL Commissioner, 250 Park Avenue West, NW, Suite 903, Atlanta, Ga. 30313. Include the name of your community and the number of bowlers who participated. We support Star Neuroscience Foundation (http://www.starneuroscience.org).
