On this page we will describe our background and philosophy.

Our Mission: To promote High School Bowling and Youth bowling across Nebraska at a Club level. To have the highest caliber tournaments and the most fun and best sportsmanship possible

The Tour of Champions as now called was started by Al Knoell - Fremont after winning the Boys first State Championship sponsored by the Metro Sports Foundation. the bigger cites Omaha and Lincoln had High School Leagues to compete in where the out-state teams had none. So in 1993 held the first Fremont Invitational  and Fremont Bakers Bash  then adding Norfolk and Columbus the next years, until now having 12 to 14 tournaments a year.
Bowling Clubs have sprung up all across the State.

Our History

The 1999/2000 Season was the start of the NHSBCA. A group of coaches meeting since 1997 decided to form the association to provide better High School bowling in Nebraska. Election of Officers and bylaws were drawn up with the ideal of contunueing the Tour of Champions format. Al Knoell - President - Ruth Monosmith - Sec/Treasure - Tom Mohney - Vice president and Dean Martin Sargent at Arms.
