Thanks SoCal,
I will give that a try. I asked the Level 1 instructor after the class on Saturday about the availability of Bronze classes in the area, and he basically said " GOOD LUCK". I believe he said he had to travel to Ohio, Which would'nt be too bad for me. None are scheduled as of yet though.

Eraser,

How did you find the course? I know Level I is supposed to be pretty basic stuff - was there anything that you learned that you can apply to you bowling team?

I went on the USBC site, www.bowl.com, and clicked on the coaching tab. Type in your zip, and they will show any classes in your area within how many miles you are willing to drive. Yes its pretty basic stuff, but there is some things I picked up and can apply to my situation. It gave me a little clearer way to present the message I was trying to get accross to the kids. In other words, same message, a little different presentation. Its worth the $60.00, and its a pre requisite to any other levels you would want to take. It also gives you a little credibility.

Well the season is winding down, with only a regional tourney and singles tourny left to go. It was quite an experience indeed. Although we did not do too well, I think the kids improved quite a bit, and had some fun along the way. Most of these kids never bowled before, so the challenge to make it enjoyable and also get better at the same time was a bit difficult at times. They would get frustrated when things did'nt go well, but the joy on their faces when they would finally see some success after working so hard was just great. I had a couple of parents come to me after practice yesterday and thank me for coaching their kids....that just made my day. I never expected to get this much out it, although difficult at times, it was also very rewarding too. I have not heard from the schools Athletic Director as far as doing this again next year, but if I am asked back I'm more than willing.

Good job Eraser. I remember your apprehension at first. It's great to have a rewarding experience like that. Parents appreciate your time and effort.
