Challenge and Sport League Conversion Charts

If you have seen the new conversion chart for challenge leagues or the conversion chart for the sport leagues, you may have noticed an oddity. The charts were designed to work both ways, e.g., from sport to standard and from standard to sport. If you look at the standard averages on each chart you will find that there are some sport or challenge averages that equate to more than one standard average. For example a 212 challenge average is equivalent to a 226 standard average and a 213 challenge average is also equivalent to a 226 standard average. Going from challenge to standard doesn't seem to be an issue but the reverse can be confusing. For example, what is the challenge average for a 226 standard average bowler, 212 or 213. The answer is that you will always use the higher of the two, in this case, the 213 (We always round up, not down). This is the policy that USBC has adopted. And, this is the policy that the rules department follows in these cases.    Sport Conversion Chart     Challenge Conversion Chart
