How the NSL works—Teams start the season bowling in conferences made up of 8 teams each.  Following 7 weeks of bowling the NSL crowns champions in each conference.  Communities receive Certificates of Bowling Excellence for winning conference championships.  After conference play the top 32 teams in each of 7 divisions bowl in a one and done format to determine National Champions in each division.  National Champions and runner-ups (Finalists) receive NSL Etched Glass Awards. 

NSL Wii Bowlers bring out the best in the NSL 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!!!
