Joshua Green


What started as a way to fill summer days as a kid became a passion for 16-year-old Joshua Green. When Joshua was five, his mom, Brenda, began taking him to the Kids Bowl Free summer program.

Joshua quickly discovered that he was a good bowler, and he has worked hard to become competitive at the high school level and be part of the Southern Scratch Junior Bowling Association League. 

Brenda knew Joshua was serious when “for his 11th birthday, he used his birthday money to buy his own bowling ball.” Joshua is now the owner of 15 bowling balls featuring a variety of designs.

After his first full year of competitive bowling, Joshua qualified for the Junior Gold Championships, an accomplishment he’s repeated this year. Brenda and Nelson, Joshua’s dad, take turns traveling with Joshua almost every weekend where he competes with the best youth bowlers in the country.

“You win scholarship money that goes into a SMART account, and he does have a little bit in there,” Brenda says. “He can use it for any type of school after he graduates.”

Joshua, a junior at Lee Magnet High School, taught himself to bowl two handed, and his high score is 278. He has also qualified for singles state finals.

Joshua is also on his school’s advanced robotics team and dreams of fixing up an old car. He hopes to continue bowling in college, where he plans to study engineering.

With his athletic and academic successes, Joshua is certainly one amazing kid.
