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 junior bowling leagues.
So come along and learn the sport of tenpin bowling and have fun with other children.
The skills these juniors are learning are 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 bowled a game of 76.
There were two new bowlers this week.
Breanna Pope got off to a good start bowling a 89 game and Arnika Karhapaa with an impressive first game of 92.
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 lots of strikes and spares are bowled.
