Bowling is a club sport at Oberlin College. Although we do not receive funding on the level of varsity sports, we do receive a generous annual budget allocation from the Student Finance Committee and Club Sports Council. Also, as a club sport participation is open to all students regardless of skill level.

Transportation to and from events is provided by College vans rented through the Club Sports Council. All drivers (coaches and teammates) are certified by Oberlin's transportation office. Event entry fees, membership dues, and motel expenses are covered by our budget allocation. The only out-of-pocket costs for bowlers are equipment upgrades/modifications (which can be heavily discounted for collegiate bowlers) and food while on the road.

Participation in any club sport does require completion of a sports physical (available at Student Health) and filling out a form for the Athletic Trainer in Philips Gym. Participation in intercollegiate events requires signing the USBC eligibility form at the beginning of each semester, maintaining a 2.0 cumulative GPA, and registering a minimum number of credit hours each semester.
