BUFFALO, NY – Sixlets® Chocolatey Candies is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the 2017 USA Bowling National Championships, the youth event conducted by International Bowling Campus Youth Development.

The USA Bowling National Championships presented by the Sixlets® Brand is the premier event of the USA Bowling program. The 2017 national event took place July 19-22 in Cleveland, and the title matches are televised on CBS Sports Network premiering on August 15th and August 22nd.

“Sixlets is excited to be part of the USA Bowling National Championships and for the opportunity to support youth bowling,” Sixlets® Senior Brand Manager Joe Annunziato said. “USA Bowling is all about teamwork, and the Sixlets® Brand is excited to be a great teammate of IBC Youth in presenting this outstanding event.”

The Sixlets® Brand partnership began with regional events that determine the 32 teams for the USA Bowling National Championships. Participants at regional events received a variety of candy products including Original Sixlets®, Fruity Sixlets® and Sixlets® Jawbreakers.

Sixlets® also provided teams reaching the national championships field with jerseys featuring the Sixlets® logo, and Sixlets® candy for participants’ gift bags at the Junior Gold Championships.  The USA Bowling National Championships and Junior Gold Championships ran concurrently in Cleveland.

“We appreciate having Sixlets® join us as presenting sponsor of the USA Bowling National Championships,” said IBC Youth Managing Director Gary Brown. “The support of a nationally recognized brand such as Sixlets® can only help to broaden the exposure of our event and showcase the great opportunities provided by youth bowling.”

In addition to its support of the USA Bowling National Championships, Sixlets® will continue to utilize the larger bowling platform to reach consumers. Its partnership with bowling through Strike Ten Entertainment, the marketing arm for the sport, extends to in-store and in-center promotions, which include free bowling offers and prize promotions throughout the year.
