The YBE Tour comprises a series of individual BTBA sanctioned youth tournaments spread throughout the season. The YBE Your will run from January 2024 through to December 2024. Each tournament defines its own entry criteria, playing format and any prize allocation.

Bowlers must be under 22 as of the 31st December 2024 and be a BTBA Member.

The YBE Tour takes individual game score and total pinfall scratch scores from the qualifying round of each tournament (usually 6 games) and allocates YBE Tour ranking points based on the performance of each bowler. At the end of the season those with the highest number of YBE Tour ranking points will be eligible to enter the YBE Tour Ranking finals and will also be awarded YBE Tour medals.
