League Specifics

  • 12 teams (72 bowlers) will be competing in the 2018 Coast League.
  • The cost is $3 per person (down  from $5 last year).    
  • Each club will have 1 team with either 2 triples teams or 4 triples teams.
  • The scores from all triples teams will be counted in the team score.
  • Number of wins will be divided by the number of games played to determine winning percentage score.
  • Standings each week will list teams in order of winning percentages.
  • Rosters are not required and clubs may interchange players as they see fit.
  • The win-loss ratio of the LBLBC #1 team and #2 teams will  be averaged out, for a united score for LBLBC.  So, for instance, if the #2 team  wins 80% of their games, and the #1 team wins 60% of their games, our LBLBC win  ratio will be 70%. 
  • The club with the highest % of wins will advance to Waterbury.


NO HOSPITALITY!!  This means there will be no goodies provided by  the club unless they voluntarily decide to do so.  So, be prepared to bring your own breakfast, snack, and lunch.  There will be no chips or salads provided. All that will be provided is water and coffee.  (Please figure out a way to identify YOUR  bottle of water from the others...maybe bring a rubber band or ribbon to place around it-?)

Games are played on Saturdays. The matches start Dec 1 and are played weekly on Saturdays until Feb 1. Because of the tight time frame of the league, games should only be rescheduled because of rain. They cannot be rescheduled because of player unavailability. Teams would need to ensure that they have sufficient back up players able to fill in as necessary. If clubs would prefer to play the match during the week or on Sunday it is alright if both clubs can agree to a change. Playing on Saturday is not mandatory except for the playoffs.

Generally, 6-7 players are needed to support a 4-person team (illness or injury, vacations etc.). There must be at least 4 people signed up on each team’s roster. Only players on the roster can be skips or participate in singles matches.

Substitutes cannot be skips or play singles. Silver team members can also substitute for a club’s Gold team. Substitutes can be made between the morning and afternoon games. 

Match Format

The format for the games is pairs in the morning session and triples and singles in the afternoon session. Typically the 4 bowlers are the same for morning and afternoon sessions, but it doesn’t have to be that way. The bottom line is that a team must provide 4 bowlers per session.
