Composite Averages
Many tournaments and even some leagues may now be asking for composite averages to enter their tournament. A composite average is the average of the bowler who bowls in two or more USBC leagues in a season. The average is determined by adding the total pins for all the leagues and dividing the results by the total number of games bowled in those leagues. In order for us to have accurate information on composite averages, league secretaries must now when sending in their final averages include all information on every USBC member bowling in their league. We will need the total pins, number of games and the average for each member to enter into our data base. Previously secretaries only needed to send information on bowlers who had a minimum of 21 games. Now information will be required on all bowlers regardless the number of games bowled.
New USBC Tournament rule effective August 1, 2012
Rule 319a Requires bowlers to use the highest of either their composite average of all leagues, or the bowlers highest single-league average of 21 games or more. BE SURE YOU READ AND COMPLY WITH THE TOURNAMENT ENTERING RULE FOR  EACH TOURNAMENT YOU ENTER.
