The YBC 4 Steps to Stardom Tenpin 2015 Nationals will be held in Toronto, May 1 – 4th, 2015.  48 of Canada’s best youth tenpin bowlers from eight provinces will compete at this year’s National Championship.

Each bowler has 4 steps through the season to compete to try out for the National Top Spot in their division.
STEP 1: Each bowling centre qualifies their top bowlers to send to the zone round.  STEP 2: The zone round qualifies 4 bowlers in each division to send to the provincial round.
STEP 3: The Provincial round sends the 1st place Boy and Girl from each of 3 divisions to the National Championship filling 6 spots on the team.
STEP 4: The National Round which will be held this year in Toronto, May 1 – 4th, 2015.
