  • Stage 1 – Top 12 girls and Top 12 boys after qualifying will bowl a further 4 games in 1 game blocks with pinfall carrying over from qualifying. The Top 6 after Stage 1 will progress to Matchplay.
  • Matchplay – the Top 6 girls and Top 6 boys will bowl 5 games matchplay with matchplay bonuses of 20for a win and 10 for a draw. Pinfall will carry over from Stage 1.
  • Stepladder – Top 3 in each division at the completion of matchplay will proceed to a stepladder final. 3rd place to bowl 2nd, the winner will meet 1st place in the title match. Total pinfall including matchplay bonuses will determine the top 3 for the stepladder finals. The winner in both the junior girls and junior boys divisions will be the bowler that wins the final stepladder game.
