2015 NSL Wii BOWLING LEAGUE BEGINS THE WEEK OF FEB 16.  REGISTER ABOVE!

December 17, 2014

The NSL is a national internet bowling league for seniors.  Teams play in their own community.  No traveling is involved.  The NSL is in its 5th year of State, Regional and National Championship play.  Past championships have had as many as 100+ communities representing 300+ teams and more then 1,700 senior Wii bowlers from almost every state.

Teams are made up of 4 senior bowlers.  A team may have up to 4 substitutes.  Teams compete 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 3 or 4 weeks of playoffs.  The playoff format is like the NCAA Final Four - you win, you play on.  You lose, you are finished.

Coaches place their teams in divisions based on level of ability.  Divisional breakdown - The average scores of 4 bowlers———Champion Division (250/300); Super Elite (220/250); Elite 1 (200/220); Elite 2 (180/200); Super Master (160/180); Master 1 (140/160) and Master 2 (less than 140).

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 Friday by 3 PM EST..  Scores are calculated and results are posted on Friday at 4 PM. The NSL keeps individual and team statistics, provides the schedule, manages the competition and distributes awards to conference and division winners.  Awards also go to NSL Coach of the Year and NSL Bowlers of the Year.  Every team has its own web page.

The fee to participate is $150 for a community.  A community may have as many teams as they want.
