Bowling is played during the Holiday Classic season (September – December) for Special Olympics Hawaii. Athletes compete in Bowling events at Regional (Oahu-wide) or Area competitions to qualify for the Holiday Classic in December. 

Bowling is one of the largest Special Olympics sports. Although there are some modifications made for athletes with physical disabilities, most athletes compete under the same rules and circumstances as athletes on a professional tour. 

In addition to offering traditional singles events, Special Olympics Hawaii offers Unified® Team events pairing 2 Special Olympics athletes with 2 Special Partners. There are over 70 Unified® teams that compete in Unified Bowling. 

SOHI also offers assisted and non-assisted ramp events for athletes with lower ability levels. As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes and teams are grouped in competition divisions according to the athletes’ ability level, age and gender.
