About the NTCA

Since its development, the National Tenpin Coaches Association (NTCA) has been a driving force in the advancement of NCAA Women's Bowling. More than half of the individuals who coach at NCAA institutions who sponsor women's bowling are NTCA members, and that number continues to grow each season.

The NTCA's core mission is twofold:
to facilitate dialogue between coaches and the NCAA in the development of bowling legislation and rules;
to provide coaches and institutions with the education necessary to grow the sport.

The NTCA sponsors The NTCA Coaches Poll, which is the official poll for ranking the 20 best NCAA women's bowling teams in the nation. In addition, the NTCA sponsors All-American Awards, as well as Rookie, Coach and Bowler of the Year Awards.

Later this year, the NTCA will hold its first-ever national convention. The event will be held at the USBC International Training and Research Center in Arlington, TX. For the first time ever, NTCA member coaches will be given an opportunity to train with the best and brightest minds in coaching.
