Bowl Grips Compared Bowl Delivery Alignment Reading The Head

Why Coaching?

Bowlers at all levels can benefit from sound and objective advice. It is especially important for new bowlers to obtain good coaching from the beginning. Everyone's game will improve with practice but a flawed technique will limit the improvement and create frustration. Improving bowlers will benefit from coaching as they expand their range of shots and the positions that they play. Experienced bowlers beginning to play third (in a fours game) and looking to skip will benefit from understanding how to assess the head and select higher percentage shots. Teams as a whole will benefit from understanding good teamwork and the role each position plays in executing a winning strategy.
