Dounds like things are progressing. I sympathize with you and the equipment issues. I run into this same thing with kids and band. Hopefully Brandon's offer will work out. We, unfortunately, do not have any used light weight equipment. Maybe if you put an add in a Penny Saver type neighborhood paper you would get some responses. Or ask the proprietor of your center if you can put some signs up soliciting light weight balls for the Jr program.

I appreciate the offer Brandon,
I just got off the phone and I think I tracked down an old Columbia Scout for her. Since she just started bowling this year , this should be a good fit for her.
Thanks again though.

Did you sell the clinic to the school and the parents?

How is the season progressing?

Reader,
Yes , the kids went to the clinic and got a great deal out of it.
Its funny how after seeing yourself on video, you are more receptive to whats being instructed. They were able to see for themselves flaws in their technique. We were able to raise most of the money through 50/50 drawings and other fundraisers, so the out of pocket was minimal. The school even bussed all of us so it was great. It was a real good experience, we hope to do it again next year.

I just completed the USBC Level 1 coaches training class over the weekend. From what I understand I don't have to go through Level 2 to take the Bronze class, although I should. Has anyone gone through the Level 2 class? Is it beneficial? I see the Bronze class will require me to travel, there are none scheduled in Michigan. I wonder why that is. Thats most likely something I will check into in the future. I was just curious about the Level 2 class and how much more info I would get. But I guess you can never know too much.

I didn't take the Level ll, but from my understanding of the curriculum it is geared for continued coaching of Jr bowlers. So in your case where all you are working with are Jrs it might be a good idea. Especially since there's no Bronze level near you. The Bronze courses are hard to find. In 5 years there's only been two that have been within a 3 hour drive of me.

But the Bronze course has a lot of information in it and when you are given an oppotunity to go to one I would. I think there is a link on the coaching area of bowl.com that lets you request a class. Or follow the email links and write them.

Thanks Erin,
I went to the USBC site the other day and it looks like the closest bronze class to me is in Kentucky. I'm not sure I'm ready for that just yet. There is a Level 2 class practically in my back yard this weekend, but prior commitments prevent me from attending. Thats why I was questioning how important it would be for me to pursue that level as well. I guess I will have to keep checking the USBC site from time to time, maybe I'll get lucky and one will be scheduled closer to me.
Thanks Again.

Eraser -
Glad to hear you took the course - I was supposed to take Level I this past weekend also but my wife fell victum to the flu and had to take care her (she's worth it)

As far as the Bronze class, I was having trouble just finding a Level I in my area and I went to the coaches section and I emailed all the instructors in my area asking if they had plans for classes in the near future, a couple were in the works, just not on the website yet so maybe something is in the works for your area. Also, one instructor told me that I could see if there was interest in my area and if I could get a few people together then a class could be scheduled.

Just a thought.
