How To Improve Your Bowling Practice

If you are a highly skilled player trying to learn how to improve your bowling practice, then kindly consider the following keys to guide you in doing so:

1. Develop a Practice Structure

2. Physical Game

3. Equipment

4. Lane Play

Any successful coach or coaching school in the past and in the present always presents an organized process to practice your bowling. The most successful players practice with the end in mind. Prepare your own checklist containing a matrix of the components of the physical game, bowling equipment and alignment and targeting principles of the game so you may rehearse on the lanes and away from competition. An organized structure is one way in learning how to improve your bowling practice and is an integral key to sharpening your overall skills.

You can easily do so yourself by merely building your own bowling matrix or outline, if you will, and spending a dedicated amount of time during each practice session on each element in the matrix. For example, when working on physical game elements of the matrix, develop perhaps four keys to your game as matrix headings and spend about 10-15 minutes per element, working on specific keys to strengthen those elements on your path to progress.

You might create a matrix heading for footwork, timing & arm-swing, balance & posture, release & finish position? Four headings with perhaps three elements under each heading that may be practiced for about 5 minutes a piece is one good method of spending one hour on your physical game. Of course, you can modify the time spent on each element per practice session but it is important to rehearse each element key to your overall improvement under each heading in your matrix.

Practice your strength, not your weakness! Practice doing it right, not replicate what you have done incorrectly in the past!

In your matrix or bowling outline for success, include equipment headings and lane play headings. It is of importance to practice with your bowling balls on a given lane condition and calibrate the ball motion of each ball in comparison to one another. It is vital to understand your equipment and when and where each ball best matches to your game and to the conditions. Learn to compare length potential ratings of each bowling ball and hook potential ratings of each ball so you trust your judgment in competition in selecting the ball which matches best to the lane conditions.

Practicing with various bowling balls should also entail changing the coverstock preparations and compare one ball to another. Using a variety of grit pads on a high-speed spinner will help you understand when to alter the surface of each given bowling ball to best match to conditions you frequently encounter in competition. Practice with non-polished surfaces and with polished surfaces. Polishes may be applied to ball surfaces with low grit and textured preparations under the polish or with a fine grit preparation under the polish. Compare each ball to other balls in your arsenal until you have a thorough understanding of how each ball will react on given conditions.

This process of structuring your equipment in a similar manner as structuring elements of your physical game will lead to a complete and meaningful practice session and to getting desired results in competition. It is remarkable how many highly skilled players have no established or organized practice regime or routine and eventually peak in their performances without ever rising above where they have landed. Skilled players who make the leap to the next level are those who practice with the end in mind, have a plan of action, practice with discipline and develop an arsenal which utilizes budgeting restrictions most efficiently.

Finally, add lane adjustments and alignment and targeting techniques to your matrix. Practice playing angles on the lane which you will eventually encounter in competition albeit they might not be your favorite angles. If you practice the areas of your game least comfortable but which are "pieces of the success puzzle", then you will become effective. This holds true to learning and practicing lane play techniques and developing an alignment and system of targeting to help combat a range of lane conditions.
