After winning three titles along with multiple other Top-10 finishes on the Professional Bowlers Association Tour in 2011, Storm's Jason Belmonte of Australia was the leading vote-getter. Voters for the All-America teams used statistics from the calendar year 2011 to make their decisions.

Liz Johnson of Cheektowaga, N.Y., Shannon Pluhowsky of Kettering, Ohio, Storm staffer Leanne Hulsenberg of Roseville, Calif., and Missy Parkin of Lake Forest, Calif., join Kulick on the women's team.
