BASIC RULES - Bowl in your community.  No traveling is involved.  Four (4) bowlers to a team.  A team roster can have up to 4 substitutes making for an 8 team roster.  We recommend a team have a minimum of 5 registered bowlers.  All teams are led by a ‘coach’ who is responsible for organizing the team(s) and keeping an open line of communication with the league.  The coach is also responsible for posting team scores on the NSL/NCL website each week.

The league provides participation certificates for all bowlers as well as Champions Certificates for conference Winners.  Winners and Finalists at the National Championship level receive NSL/NCL Etched Glass awards.  We name and honor a Wii Bowler of the Year and a Wii Coach of the Year.



Our bowlers bring out the best in the NSL/NCL motto - LIVE ACTIVE.  LIVE YOUNG.  LIVE LIFE!  Wii have fun.  Wii stay happy and healthy.  Wii look forward to the competition each week.  Wii find competitiveness we never knew Wii had.  Wii strive to improve.  Wii stay in touch with friends and teammates.  Wii are true Champions.  Wii love the NSL/NCL!!!
