I think I can see your coaching here. smile

I actually like his timing and follow-through better than yours. I think he could stand to get into his slide a bit quicker, which might improve his balance at the line (or not, I'm not sure,) but he'd need to slow down one of his earlier steps to maintain his pace.

Has no balance at the line. Needs balance, slow down and get your feet under you so you can deliver the ball. Has lots of stuff going for him, but its lost when he steps off.

Ethan is a much better bowler than bowler 1, at least form and style wise.

The only thing I see is him forcing his swing which is causing him to lose balance at the foul line. Have him just relax and let the ball come through, don't try to accelerate through the release so much. If he is not accelerating (you can see better than me) try having him get into his slide a touch sooner as he may be getting into the slide late which is causing him to pop up.

Man you guys beat me to every one of these and didn't leave anything for me to add haha. I agree that the falling off his shot is really affecting the balls momentum. I think it is because his slide is not coming up underneath him in order to "fill the gap". His slide seems to be going left as opposed to going straight, or better yet slightly right. If that slide foot could get up under his body that would really fix the stability at the line.
