NORTHWEST INDIANA JUNIOR TOURNAMENT PLAYERS ASSOCIATION
2017-18
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 six seasons we have
awarded $120,000 in scholarships (including $36,000 in 16-17), qualified over 175 bowlers for junior gold, and helped 63 athletes attain their goal of bowling collegiately.

The tour, in it's seventh season will offer 11 regular events, followed by the season ending tour championships where an estimated $10,000 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 2018 Junior Gold Championships in Dallas.

Tour membership will once again 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, high
qualifier awards, 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.
