Squad times will be 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on most days.

The team practice sessions will utilize the same oil pattern being used for team competition at the Open Championships, and the practice schedule will mirror that of the Bowlers Journal Championships.

Team sessions allow groups of up to 10 bowlers 90 minutes of practice on the team-event oil pattern. A pair of freshly oiled lanes is $100, and no more than five bowlers may participate at one time.

There will be a maximum of two available pairs for each time slot, so early online registration is encouraged.
