UPDATE | NCBCA Collegiate Lane Patterns Released (October 1, 2017). On September 29, 2016, the National Collegiate Bowling Coaches' Association (NCBCA) has released an initial set of 14 different sport compliant lanes patterns: 4 long, 6 medium and 4 short. The patterns are the result of three years of planning and discussion by the NCBCA and were developed through the efforts and technical expertise of Kegel's John Janawicz and Vincennes Head Coach Gary Sparks. On October 1, 2017, the NCBCA released two additional sport compliant patterns: 1 medium and 1 short, bringing the total number to 16.

Coach Sparks also developed a set of Pattern Ratings (docx) aimed outlining the differences between the patterns using a scale of 1 to 10 on six important metrics: ratio, volume, foward/reverse, formats, surfaces and difficulty. A Rating Scale Key (docx) explains in detail the meaning of the 1 to 10 scale for each of the six variables.

All of the lane patterns, pattern ratings and scale key are available for download in a single complete package zip file.

If you have any questions concerning the 16 lane patterns, their use in collegiate competition, the rating system or the ratings scale used, please contact Coach Sparks (gsparks@vinu.edu) for further information.
