Bowling is a game of accuracy, form, and footwork—all skills that can be learned by anyone with the right approach! This text works to teach students the fundamentals of bowling one at a time, from holding the ball properly, to approaching the lane, to releasing their throw. Game scoring and strategy are also discussed to build on core mechanics.

Learn Bowling Basics

Help your students turn empty frames and gutter balls into a series of strikes and spare by teaching them proper mechanics. This book takes a chapter-by-chapter approach to teaching excellent bowling form and mentality, to help students step up to the lanes with confidence. Starting with grip and stance, and moving through footwork, approach, delivery, and finish, this book outlines the critical steps needed to throw your best ball.

In addition to the actual mechanics of the game, learning strategy is also key. Later chapters of the book go on to cover some of the more complicated nuances of the game, such as picking up spares, adding spin to the ball, and setting up shots mentally. Delving into these tactical facets of the game can help players of all skills better understand bowling strategy and help them take their game to the next level.
