Supposedly, bowling in a PBA league is to help the bowler work on many things in his approach, release, speed, etc. As, any shortcomings in a bowler's style is magnified on these patterns. Many bowlers get frustrated with this type of league, as they are not that well schooled to understand how to read oil patterns, control their tempo, and even match up the right equipment to the condition, while trying to force their shot rather then take what the lane gives them.

The best PBA league I ever bowled in was one where there was coaching and assistance provided by the house Pro.

So, as one of the junior bowler instructors in this house, I recommended this approach to the House to help the junior PBA league. After week 1, the house conducted a meeting with the junior bowlers and parents, to see if they wanted this. It was a resounding YES, as many of the kids were having trouble. They were then asked to recommend a coach out of the 5 junior coaches in the house who would help the most. I was the one the juniors selected.

Well, I was approached with this idea. Not being one of the top bowlers in this house, or a card carrying pro, but certified in coaching, I thought there were better qualified bowlers. But, the house pushed me to consider it.

So, I accepted. Now, I haven't been in a PBA League for a couple of years, and solicited the help of the Pro Shop guy, who has turned into a friend and knows his stuff as a Silver Coach. And, between us, we roamed the lanes in this league (12 lanes of 3-man teams, mostly Jr High and Freshmen bowlers).

I quickly found the biggest problem was lining the bowlers up on the Viper. As, bowlers of this age were not adept at playing different lines and reading the condition or ball reaction. We routinely work on style, release and timing during the regular season. There was an immediate favorable outcome, as the bowlers weren't fighting their usual comfort stance and target. The bowlers responded well and actively asked for help. I was pleased at their eagerness to learn, and how often they asked for help. These kids really want to learn, and I'd like to think that their familiarity with me and faith in my ability to work with them over the last couple of years they have known me, led to their comfort to inquire.

There was much improvement on this night, and the kids were not as frustrated as they were after the first night. Many kids and parents thanked me and the Pro Shop guy for helping.

I think this will be successful. And, I must admit, personally gratifying.
