5 REASONS TO PARTICIPATE
Everyone is welcome:
Kids and teens of all skill levels are welcome. Our Youth Bowling Crew has a handicapped system in place that allows bowlers of different skill levels to compete fairly against each other. Everyone can compete fairly against one another while having fun.
Help pay for college:
Each year teen bowlers in the U.S. earn an estimated $6,000,000 in scholarship money. There are over 3,500 student-athletes on more than 250 college and university bowling teams, nearly half of these programs offer scholarships.
Bowl with friends:
The program doesn't incorporate a draft, so buddy requests are almost always granted.
Nobody stays on the bench in youth bowling. Everyone gets to play the full allotted time.
If there is ever a regularly-scheduled session you know you will not be able to attend, you can bowl the games for that session ahead of time and they will count toward your individual average & team’s score. If you are unable to make the regular scheduled season, you can pre-bowl. Your individual score will still be added to your team score.
MEET YOUR COORDINATOR
I’m very excited about coordinating the Youth Bowl Crew Program at Bogart’s Entertainment Center this year. Normally, I’m touring the country presenting keynotes, workshops, and assemblies to student groups and businesses. COVID meant I would be traveling less and presenting in front of a computer screen instead of a live audience.
When Scott and Al approached me about coordinating the Youth Bowl Crew this year, I jumped at the opportunity.
Back in the day, I spent a lot of Saturdays bowling in a youth league at Hi-Way Lanes in Redwood Falls, Minnesota. While I wasn’t the best bowler in the league, I enjoyed hanging out with my friends and trying to improve my average. For me, there is nothing like the sound of crashing pins being knocked down.
I also find a unique thrill in helping others improve their average. In March 2019, I completed the Bronze Training course through the USBC. After seeing my motivation to coach, the lead instructor invited me to be on staff with the United States Bowling Academy headquartered in Owatonna.
My passion for bowling is so strong it became the driving force for my fourth book: The UP Yours Approach--Preparing, Delivering, and Following Through in Life and Business, a fable that ties lessons from bowling to life and business.
There are three simple goals for Youth Bowl Crew this year.
Master the Fundamentals.
Follow Through by taking the lessons from the lanes and using them for life.
The combination of Fun, Fundamentals, and Follow Through means Saturday mornings at Bogart’s Entertainment Center will be a striking experience!
I look forward to working with all the bowlers and parents to help grow the game.
