The CollegeBowling.com 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
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.

The CollegeBowling.com 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.
