Finding the right coach can be hard. There can be differing opinions among different coaches, and sometimes you’re not sure how to make the most of the coaching you are getting. It can be stressful, uncomfortable, and challenging–even for experienced bowler-athletes.

Coaching requires trust that goes both ways, and every bowler is unique, with different goals, problems, and personalities. Here are some tips to get the most out of working with a coach:

  • Ask questions: Your coach should have an answer, or know where to find it.
  • Be open: Not every suggestion will feel good right away. Trust the process.
  • Know yourself: Find a coach whose style fits your personality.
