I have two kids under the age of 9 and this is one of their favorite things to do. How exciting they can bowl for free all summer, all over the Rockford area.

The Kids Bowl Free program is making it possible for all kids, from age 2 to age 17, to bowl free all across the country. Two free games of bowling per day, absolutely free.

Bowling Centers are scheduled to open up at the end of June and Kids Bowl Free starts on July 1st and goes until August 31, 2020.

To sign up for the program, you start by choosing the bowling center that works best for you. Most bowling centers have an option to add on two free games per adult for around $25 for the whole summer. You will either have to provide your own bowling shoes, or you can rent them from the bowling center. After you sign up, you will be emailed your weekly passes each week.
