Bowling Coaching Articles
When it comes to bowling coaching, Bowling This Month has a plethora of highly successful minds to pull from, all possessing countless years of experience coaching at all levels of our sport. They share with our readers the most up-to-date coaching methods and techniques available anywhere.
A lot of our readers strive to become bowling coaches themselves. Whether becoming the head coach of a local high school program, to becoming a Saturday morning youth league coordinator, or to any other aspiring coach; many find themselves stuck when trying to learn the art of coaching. Solving the puzzle of what happens when a bowling ball goes downlane can be a challenging task within itself, so being a coach presents a whole new set of obstacles to overcome. Our bowling coaching articles aim to provide information about how to better acquaint yourself to the world of coaching. The following key skills are presented at great depth through this section:
- Coaching techniques and drills: Getting to the finished product of a balanced player is a difficult and winding road. Our contributors deliver new methods to make that path a little easier to manage. From the one step drill, to the placement of your camera equipment, we highlight the most effective coaching methods used by the nation’s best.
- Properly preparing your player: Bowling has such a vast array of variables in finding the right formula to score. Being exposed to the different conditions at a coaching level helps a player become exposed to and experienced to a varying amount of scenarios. In many of our articles, we introduce many ways to make bowling less of a guessing game and more of a science.
- Making information easily understood at varying skill levels: Being acutely aware to how your pupil(s) receive and interpret information is a vital skill in coaching. Learning how to match your vocabulary choice, amount of information, and content of that information can all be found here.
Delving deeper into what it takes to become a great coach, you will see that much of the information is very translatable to your own game and even can afford some life lessons. Nothing quite equates to the feeling one gets when they see a pupil smile and succeed at what they love.
