Welcome to the Online Home of the
Capital District Youth Scholarship Tour

Celebrating 11 Years During the 2020 - 2021 Season

The CDYST is in its 11th season of providing youth bowlers with challenging and competitive scratch bowling tournaments and the opportunity to earn scholarship prizes and compete in the USBC Junior Gold and Youth Open Championships. The overwhelming support of the area bowling proprietors, our sponsors, and our bowlers and their families has established the CDYST as a premier youth bowling tournament organization.

In addition to being a foundation for a three-time Team USA member and two Junior Team USA members, CDYST bowlers have gone on to win National Titles at Junior Gold, the Teen Masters, and the USBC Youth Open. Our bowlers and alumni have also earned medals at major international competitions; become PWBA National and PBA Regional Champions; Collegiate National Champions and All-Americans; High School State Champions; and earned many other prestigious titles and honors at many top levels of our sport.

During our 2019 - 2020 season, the COVID-19 pandemic shortened our season to 8 tournaments; but we still awarded nearly $14,000 in scholarships to our talented bowlers; and 29 bowlers earned entries into the canceled 2020 Junior Gold Championships in Las Vegas, Nevada.   We have awarded over $170,000 in scholarships since our first tournament in May 2010.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering a limited schedule of events at host centers throughout New York’s Capital District and vicinity, while enforcing social distancing protocols. Unless noted, all of our events offer optional Junior Gold qualifying.  Thank you for visiting our website. Please check back often for updates and we look forward to having you join us and...
