Spend Some Money On Your Bowling Game

If your bowling is suffering, spend some money on your bowling game.

For the relatively small cost of a bowling lesson from an accredited and/or experienced bowling instructor, you can do yourself a world of good by taking a lesson.

It is not always the fact that a good coach can straighten out your game, it is that the coach can point out areas of your game in need of the most work and remove doubt from your mind where you should place focus to make improvements.

A good coach can map out a practice plan for you to help you develop solid physical game fundamentals.

Not only can a coach help you with your physical game, you can also address adjustment techniques when lanes change. You can learn how to identify a poor ball reaction and which type of adjustment will help you best.

These adjustments can be repositioning of your feet and sighting mark on the lane, they can be ball speed adjustments, loft distance control adjustments, release adjustments, and bowling ball changes.

Rarely can any top tier bowler depend only on moving the feet and spot on the lane to find the pocket after lane conditions breakdown. Usually multiple adjustment are needed.

If you address these types of adjustments with your coach and practice them with your coach present, you can develop a solid arsenal of adjustments you can trust in competition.

Then there is the matter of the mental game. Confidence in your own skills is crucial if you wish to compete against good players and emerge victorious. Belief in your game and in your knowledge of what to do and when to do it is part of the mental game concept.

Your coach can help you with triggers to recognize when you get stuck in a bowling rut so you can get back into the groove more quickly than trying to figure things out solely on your own.


There has never been, or rarely been, any top professional champion who did not develop skills by working with a coach. In many cases, top players use the services of their coaches frequently during and after a season of competition.

There is every reason to justify investing some time and money in teaming up with a coach and building the techniques and strategies in your game. Being the “lone ranger” among bowlers can work well for awhile but sooner or later every good player can use a coach.

The cost of lessons can be relatively inexpensive. Normally, coaches can cost less than you pay for a new plastic bowling ball for an hour of coaching time. A series of lessons can buy you even better fees.

A series of lessons can also be shared with your league teammates or with friends to cost average the fees and make lessons extremely affordable.

Just discuss arrangements with your coach of choice and get to work. The future progress of your game awaits the outcome.
