About Elite Youth Tour
The Elite Youth Tour (EYT) a 501(c)3, founded in 2012 by World Champion bowlers Jason Belmonte and Diandra Asbaty, was born out of love and passion for the sport of bowling.
Mission: The Elite Youth Bowling Tour empowers young leaders to build strong communities and create positive social change.
EYT provides not only an opportunity for young bowlers (ages 5 to 20) to prepare for their future in bowling, but also gives them an outlet where they can learn essential and valuable life skills. Participating youth learn how to interview, how to deal with pressure, and how to conduct themselves in a professional manner through active coaching and mentoring provided by experienced all-volunteer staff . Participants also have the opportunity to earn substantial scholarship money while building experience to compete at large-scale tournaments. These youth bowlers also have the opportunity to earn the right to compete at Junior Gold, bowling’s biggest youth stage, and the chance to bowl for Junior Team USA.
Vision: Create positive youth development and leadership skills utilizing the sport of bowling.
In EYT’s short existence, we already have evidence of success with our programming. In fact, we have had 4 EYT participants earn a spot on the Junior Team USA, have awarded over $100,000 in scholarship dollars. Regular programming includes not only a place where young bowlers go to become better bowlers, but to also develop life skills that will help them in all areas of their life. After obtaining more funding, the EYT plans to provides one-on-one or group-coaching sessions that focus on technique and game strategy that includes the use of Positive Youth Development (PYD) and includes college and career readiness preparation. Group coaching is offered the night before the competition and is open to all youth (ages 5 to 20) regardless of experience or knowledge.
