    All students wanting to participate in bowling must have a physical and other required forms on file in the office, BEFORE they are allowed to practice. These forms can be found online at the Seaman Middle School web page.

    Thank you everyone for another GREAT bowling season. A special thanks goes out to Coach Brooks for putting up with me another season and all of her hard work with the website and sending out the reminds. My job would be much harder without Coach Brooks, thank you.

    I appreciate everyone's hard work and dedication during the season. I hope that you all plan to continue your quest to improve your average and join leagues or teams in the future. Good luckk to the 8th grade bowlers in all of your endeavors next season and I really look forward to next season with this year's 7th graders.

    I have attached, and will continue to attach some photos from this season. Sorry but some of them are not great quality.

    FR / Custer Hill Bowling Center

    7485 Normandy Dr.

                                                              Fort Riley, Kansas

    Front Desk: 785-239-4366

    Access to Fort Riley has changed to ensure full compliance with Homeland Security directives. This directive requires installations to vet all visitors and un-cleared contractors prior to allowing entry to the installation, a common practice on all installations around the country.

    For those who have a common access card, military ID, military dependent ID or retiree ID, you are already cleared and may enter as usual.

    USD 475 and Fort Riley have partnered for over 60 years and the installation is taking into consideration the value our staff, families and visitors bring to Fort Riley.

    Visiting Teams

    • Visiting teams will be granted special event access to Fort Riley for team members, team staff, bus drivers, and coaches who do not possess DoD credentials.

    • A list of team members, team staff and coaches must be submitted to the Athletic Director at a minimum of 72 hours in advance.

    • All guests need to have a valid form of ID (i.e. Driver’s License or state ID) to present at Henry Gate. Juvenile guests (those under 16 years of age) may be vetted by their guardian (coach).

    • Teams will be able to come through Henry Gate VCC (Marshall Field, Exit 301 off of I-70).

    • The approved event list will be provided to the Henry Gate guards, on the right hand side access point, on the day of

      the event.

      Visitors (No military ID, military dependent ID or retiree ID all visitors must report to the Visitor Control Center)

    • Report to Henry Gate Visitor Control Center (VCC) to request a Fort Riley Day Pass. The Day Pass is only good for the

    date of the visit. A Daily Pass can be obtained the day of your visit or on a day prior to your visit.

    o A pass will be granted if you clear the necessary background check.

    o The background check will take 20-30 minutes the first time you visit. The next time you visit your original request will be on file and will go much quicker. Please take that into account when planning your visit.

    Fort Riley’s intention is not to deter visitors; the Fort is just performing its mission, as are other Army Posts, to keep you and the installation safe.


    The practice schedule and the schedule for bowling meets has been added to this website. Please refer to them for practice questions. 

    Also please join the BOWLING REMIND group listed below for updates etc.



    Anyone academically eligible that wants to participate may, as long as they have a physical, assumption of risk, concussion form, and a consent to treat form on file in the office before the first practice. We will meet with students late Dec., during seminar to answer any initial questions. Additional meetings will follow after the break to prepare students for the upcoming season. Please feel free to email Coach Uhler or Coach Brooks with any questions.



    All bowlers get picked up each practice from Gage Bowling Alley from 4:45- 5:15.

    A bus will transport the bowlers to the bowling alley at the end of the school day.

    Bowlers can use their own equipment or the bowling alley's equipment.

    Each bowler needs to check the calendar as 7th and 8th graders practice on different days depending on the availability of the bowling alley.

    There is no cost to be on the bowling team.

    A schedule will be handed out at the parent meeting.
