Burlington Lawn Bowling Club - Since 1971       

Our Junior Program

In bowling, a “Junior” is anyone between the ages of 18 and 25. For junior bowlers between the ages of 18 and 25 there are national and international championships known as "Under 25 Championships" or also known as "World Junior Championships". Click here for more information on the Under 25s.

A “Minor” is a class of "junior" for anyone under 18 and is more commonly known as "18 and Under (Under 18s)" or "Juniors Under 18" as called in Ontario. Bowlers aged under 18 can compete in the Ontario Junior Championships. See OLBA's "Junior" page for qualification dates for competition.

Meantime, a "Novice" is a bowler with five years or less of lawn bowling memberships anywhere in the world, regardless of age.

BLBC's 'Monday Night Junior League' began June 12. Every Monday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Anyone 18 years down to 7 is encouraged to give us a try. Our special Junior League membership is $35 plus bowls rental for the season (June thru mid-October). Lessons and training for hopeful teens also provided.

For 2017, the Junior/Minor membership for bowlers from age 7 to 18 years at BLBC is now $35 a year, and is valid May to October.

We have junior and adult coaches to assist with training, and to get you into tournament action quickly.

Juniors are also invited to come out and try it during our annual Open House Week, usually held in the first week of May. For 2017, the Open House runs from May 6 to May 12 with afternoon and evening coaching sessions.

Anyone can bowl. All you need is a pair of flat-soled shoes to protect our greens, a hat to shield the sun and comfortable clothing. Bowls are available from the club. Later you may wish to buy your own bowls but don’t do that until you are sure of the size that suits you.


Over the years, Burlington LBC has hosted numerous Junior Events including provincial championships, training camps and international competitions.
