aoiten, this is a strange situation. 2-handed, between the legs was allowed to keep the interest in bowling. Not only in Pee /wee, but in bantam also. But, it was the intent of the Junior league instructor to gradually teach a 1-handed approach as the kids were physically able.

I guess, this rule takes into account that at some time, the children will convert to 1-handed, and a separate average has to be maintained.

then, it is fairly common that Junior bowlers will try a 2-handed
approach. The Juniors are told they cannot switch between 1 and 2 hands. But, must stay with 1.

I think there's needs to be a shorter term to describe the between-the-legs technique. Let's call it BTL.

I'm a little confused by what you wrote. If I'm confused about that and the rules originally, I'd suspect that others might be confused or misled as well. Then those people will go on to misled youths. So, we need to get this straight.

It seems reasonable, but unfortunate, that young people would be hearded into the one-handed corral because that's what one particular coach prefers. Or even if 95% of people prefer it. As far as I go, I will make sure the youth leagues where my son and his two-handing friend goes fully understand the rules.

I'm fighting for kids' rights to bowl the way they choose (within reason). hehe

There is a significant difference in bowling with two hands between your legs and bowling with two hands in a full approach. The standard approach with two hands should be using the same average as the one handed approach as both have the same release with the same dominant hand. It is no different than changing hand positions in order to trick the ball into doing something different.

The between the legs shot is a completely different game as you are not moving in an approach, nor are you using a dominant hand, therefore you cannot say whether the bowler is right or left handed. This is why the average has to be separated because it keeps people from being able to use that as a way to switch hands during the season.

Thanks. It's just that the terminology used in the rules isn't that clear. The rules make BTL sound the same as Osku style.
