The junior development group is a coaching clinic for children over seven years old and held every Friday at 5pm during school terms.
The cost is $6 per child for one hour of coaching and bowling fun.
The group get to learn the skills needed to bowl strikes and not just roll a ball down a lane.
Coaching is conducted in a fun way where the children learn the skills of tenpin bowling to enable them to progress into one of the competitive and fun junior bowling leagues.
So come along and learn the sport and have fun with other kids.
The skills these juniors are learning is showing more and more with their games improving each week, and they are also learning that attitude and sportsmanship are just as important as consistent scores and averages.
Tom Carrigg and Shea O’Sullivan both bowled games of 71 and Kynan Gardener bowled 72.
Robert Berkovic bowled the highest game with 87.
All of the bowlers are starting to rely less and less on the bumpers and are learning more control over the ball.
It should not be much longer until we start to see lots of strikes and spares.
Congratulation and good bowling to all juniors.
