Both the NSL and NCL are in the second week of playoffs.  For the schedule of the Wii Bowl action and the results of Week 1 bowling click on the Headline above. In the National Community League (NCL) bowlers are competing for the title of National Wii Bowl Champion in two divisions - The Championship Division and The Master Division.  Second week bowling features semifinal matches. 

In the NSL bowlers are competing in seven divisions for the title of National Wii Bowl Champion.  Second week bowling features quarter final and semifinal action.

The 13TH NSL season featured 214 teams from 25 states representing 59 communities with 1.047 registered Wii Bowlers.  We started the 1st season of the NCL with 9 communities representing 31 teams.  The NCL features Wii bowlers with intellectual and developmental differences representing the Autistic Community, the Down Syndrome Community and Special Olympic Athletes.

The NSL features senior bowlers from all walks of life and all levels of abilities.  We feature bowlers from CCRC’s, Independent Senior Living Communities, Assisted Living Communities, Affordable Housing Communities, Senior Centers, VA Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Senior Meal Programs and Recreation Centers.  The League features Senior Wii Bowlers with disabilities, bowlers in wheelchairs and legally blind bowlers.

In both leagues competitors bowl in their own 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.  The NSL/NCL recommends a team have a mimimum 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 NSL/NCL.  The coach is also responsible for posting team scores on the NSL website each week. 

The NSL provides participation certificates for all bowlers as well as certificates for conference champions.  Winners and Finalists at the National Championship level receive NSL awards.  We also name and honor a Senior Wii Bowler of the Year and a NSL Wii Coach of the Year.

The 2023 NSL/NCL Championships begin in late February.  Registration will be open online beginning Jan 1. The registration fees are - $250 for one to 4 teams, $300 for 5 to 9 teams, $350 for 10 to 14 teams and $400 for more than 14 teams.



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