Youth Coaching Sessions:Cost: $20 per session with a single Youth bowler ($5 for each additional Youth bowler). In a Youth coaching session, only Youth bowlers are coached. No adults are coached during a Youth coaching session. No DVD is produced for Youth bowlers. It usually takes about a half an hour for a session.
Each Youth coaching session includes the following:1 - Check the bowling ball for proper fit. 2 - Check the bowling shoes for proper fit. 3 - There is a short review period of previous coaching sessions. 4 - There is a short examination of the knowledge of the Youth pertaining to the lane definitions and alignment procedures. 5 - The Youth is given a short warm up period of rolling the ball for a strike and the corner pins. 6 - The Youth is praised for the good performance characteristics that they have. 7 - The Youth is encouraged to improve on one or two performance skills. 8 - There is a short review of what the bowler does well and what they need to work on. 9 - There is a short question and answer period summarizing the session.
I have trained many many adults to coach Youth bowlers and coached hundreds of youth bowlers.
Youth bowlers have the most potential and the most hunger for bowling better.
I do encourage that a Parent always be present. Usually a Youth bowler needs constant encouragement while learning the proper and safe way to roll the ball. If a Parent is present while the coaching session is proceeding, that Parent will understand what to help the Youth bowler with between coaching sessions.
