NORTHWEST INDIANA JUNIOR TOURNAMENT PLAYERS ASSOCIATION
2016-17
The Northwest Indiana Junior Tournament Players Association (NWIJTPA) has been established to provide youth bowlers in northwest
Indiana added opportunities to experience difficult sport conditions, earn scholarship dollars, and earn spots into the North Pointe Junior
Gold Championships.  During our first five seasons we have awarded $85,000 in scholarships (including $33,000 in 15-16), qualified over
150 bowlers for junior gold, and helped 45 athletes attain their goal of bowling collegiately.

The tour, in it's sixth season will offer 10 regular events, followed by the season ending tour championships where an estimated $8,000 will
be awarded.  A post season all star match - The Michiana Cup -  will conclude the season and help further prepare some of our top
competitors for the 2017 Junior Gold Championships in Cleveland.

Tour membership will cost $50.  The tour will be open to non-NWIJTPA members however, tour members will enjoy the following benefits:  
reduced event entry fees, two member only events, champion banners, priority registration, the opportunity to earn year end bonus
scholarships, chance to be named bowler of the year, and the opportunity to become a member of the Michiana Cup All Star team.

All regular season events will be open to non-NWIJTPA members at an additional cost.
