Make Memories with ‘Kids Bowl Free’ (locations across Alberta!)

Westlock Bowl

Updated March 7, 2024

When Kim’s 4 year old son started to fall in love with bowling she signed up. Christine enrolled all three of her kids the next year. I’m excited because it’s a new activity for our family that we can all enjoy.

Have you heard about Kids Bowl Free? It started 16 years ago, so we wouldn’t be surprised if you have!

What is Kids Bowl Free?

Kids Bowl Free is designed by bowling centres as a way to give back to the community and provide a safe, secure and fun way for kids to spend time this summer.

Sign up your child easily through the online form. You then simply show up at the bowling alley you registered for and bowl 2 games for free every day this summer! All you pay for is the shoe rental.

What is the Family Pass?

After completing registration you’ll be given the option to add a Family Pass. This one-time purchase gives the listed adults the same benefits the kids get.

  • 2 Person Family Pass for $29.95 USD
    • 2 family members can bowl along with the kids, all summer!
    • Great for parents, grandparents, babysitters, and even older siblings!
    • It’s just a one-time payment!
    • Share in the family fun at a fantastic price!
  • 4 Person Family Pass for $38.95 USD
    • All the benefits of the 2 Person Pass PLUS
    • TWO more people for just $9USD more!

Grab the pass and bowl 2 games with registered child(ren) for only the price of the shoe rental.

Each bowling centre has a limited number, so sign up early! (If you don’t buy the pass initially you can add it later – if there are any available.)

Note that only the adults listed on the family pass can use it.
