Not every coach is the right fit for every bowler, but every bowler can benefit from the right coach. Here are a few tips for making sure you’ve got the right coach for you:

  • Personality: Find a coach who has a personality that matches yours and can instruct you how you like to learn. Matching personalities is an important part of building trust.
  • Knowledge: Great coaches don’t need to be great bowlers, but they need to have enough knowledge to help you achieve your goals. As you progress, you might need to change coaches or bring in additional help for specific skills.
  • Communication: Look for a coach who can communicate clearly and isn’t afraid to say, “I don’t know…let me check!” if you ask a question they don’t have the answer for.
