Collegiate Averages

Club Player Averages


COLLEGEBOWLING.COM'S CLUB PLAYER AVERAGE LISTS has tracked individual athlete performance in two main categories, by traditional average and by the average differential, since the 1998-1999 season, and tracked the filtered subset "club players" by traditional average and average differential since the 2015-2016 season.


Online Statistics

The database presently includes statistics for club players from the 2015-2016 season through the present. You can view lists of the "Top Club Players", "Top Club Rookies" or "All Club Players" above. The lists can be filtered by viewing "All Events" or only "Tier 1 Events". Tier 1 events include about 10 major events each season and have changed over the period covered by these lists.

To view a club player profile for a particular season, find the athlete in an average or average differential list for the season you wish to view, and click on the athlete's name. If the athlete bowled less than 36 games for a completed season, you will need to select the athlete from the "All Club Players" average or average differential lists.

If you would like to search for an athlete by school, select the "Teams" link at the top of any main site pages.

Club Players Defined

The club players included on these lists must be at the time of competition a member of a "club bowling program" as defined by the Club Team Bowling Coaches Association. Beginning in 2014-15, a club bowling program is generally defined as 1) not currently affiliated with the NCAA, NAIA, or NJCAA, and 2) has no athletes in their program who receive financial incentives (a scholarship, grant or discount) used to recruit or entice them to attend the institution to participate in the bowling program. A non-club program who is no longer affiliated with the NCAA, NAIA, or NJCAA and who no longer has athletes in their program who received financial incentives used to recruit or entice them to attend the institution to participate in the bowling program, may become a club bowling program after a required waiting period.

Average Differential

The average differential requires a "field average" be calculated for comparison to an athlete's performance. The field average is the average of the scores for all athletes in a division (men or women) in a single event, and includes both club players and non-club players. The field average is then subtracted from the athlete's individual average to determine the average differential. A positive average differential means an athlete performed better than the average athlete in an event, while a negative average differential means an athlete underperformed when compared to the average.

In calculating an athlete's season average differential, it is pro-rated based on the number of games the athlete bowled in each event.
