Rules of play, tournament format and team composition
The national competition will be a tournament. All teams will play in an open format. There will be no parentheses. The top two scores (based on total drops) will determine the state champion and runner-up. CHSAA has a competitive interscholastic division for unified bowling.
Teams will consist of a maximum of five players, three competitors and two substitutes.
A. The three students competing must consist of at least two students (athletes) with an intellectual disability (see “Eligibility” below) and 1 non-intellectually disabled student (partner). Coaches can play an additional student with an intellectual disability as a partner.
Unified sports teams must consist of boys and girls, making them a mixed team. A student with a physical disability may participate as a partner.
The Baker format is an exciting and truly team-based method of bowling. A Baker game is when multiple bowlers pitch a game. Team members will alternate between the three to roll a ball. This will happen for all games. Regardless of a reserve or strike, the next participant will roll the ball. The Baker Trio format gives equal playing time to each member; create meaningful participation that is essential to the Unified Sports® model.
Each trio team will play 5 games of Baker during each meeting. The winner of the match will be decided by total pinfall. This means that the total score of each team’s 5 matches is added together and the team with the most pins wins the event.
