Due to there being students from different schools each day the league takes place, we are requiring masks to be worn in Airway Lanes.  If you are riding in the city van to Airway, you must wear a mask in the van.

Our Middle School Bowling League is a great way for students to be a part of a school team while learning and refining their bowling skills. No experience is required. During each session, participants will receive a 15-20 minute lesson from Airway Lanes staff before bowling their games.

City staff will be with the bowlers while at Airway Lanes. If possible, a school staff member will also be assisting the bowlers as well as monitoring groups. The program cost covers the games, lessons, shoes, trophies and awards. Students are welcome to bring their own bowling shoes and bowling ball as well. Bowling etiquette is expected while on the alley.

The league will run from the week of November 1 to December 11. Your team will bowl once a week for 5 weeks and then the tournament. See below for you school’s bowling day.

  • Tuesdays –  Tree of Life, Linden Grove, Homeschool
  • Wednesdays – Hillside, Kalamazoo Christian, Maple St
  • Thursdays –  Milwood, Portage Central, Portage North
