Sixlets Brand Chocolatey Candies will return as presenting sponsor of the USA Bowling National Championships in 2018, and the opportunity to qualify for the event starts in October with the first of 16 regional events.

The Sixlets Brand became a sponsor this year, when the USA Bowling National Championships Presented by Sixlets took place in Cleveland, and the finals of the tournament was televised on CBS Sports Network for the second consecutive year.

“We’re thrilled to have Sixlets continue its involvement with the USA Bowling National Championships,” Sixlets Senior Brand Manager Joe Annunziato said. “We had the chance to experience the event last summer, and it’s amazing to not only see the level of talent but the camaraderie of the competitors. It was a fun event, and the Sixlets Brand looks forward to being involved with another great event in Dallas.”

The Sixlets Brand partnership will extend to the 16 regional events, and participants at each regional will receive Sixlets Brand Chocolatey Candies. The regional events will determine the 32 teams — 16 teams in the 15-and-under division and 16 teams in the 12-and-under division — that will advance to the 2018 USA Bowling National Championships Presented by Sixlets, which will take place in Dallas in July.
