A Bronze Level coach certification clinic will be held at Prairie Lanes on August 22 through August 24, 2014.
Coaches attending this two and one-half day program will receive training that will prepare them to work with intermediate level bowlers. This training also is designed to supply individuals with the tools and information to pursue coaching as a profession. This course continues the development of the four essential keys of bowling, including the physical game, lane play, equipment and mental game. Various tools such as drills, videotaping and video analysis are introduced. On-lane training includes participation in the process of giving a lesson to a bowler. Cancellation requests received prior to register by date will receive a refund, less $30 administrative fee.
The clinic will be run by USBC Silver Certified coach Hurman Mathus of the USBC Regional Development Facility.
The future of bowling is dependent on developing the skills of youth bowlers, and empowering new adult bowlers with the tools to succeed on the lanes. One of the top controllable reasons cited by bowlers leaving the game is a lack of confidence in their equipment or ability. The MBA will also be working to address this problem with a series of coaching clinics conducted by MBA Hall of Fame member and MBA Director Dave Shaw. Any and all interest in assisting with this project are welcome. We all have a vested interest in helping to grow our sport.
