Learn the basics of bowling for lifelong success!

Bowling is a game of accuracy, form, and footwork—all skills that can be learned by anyone with the right approach! This book teaches 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 students turn empty frames and gutter balls into a series of strikes and spares by teaching them proper mechanics. This book takes a chapter-by-chapter approach to teaching bowling form and mentality, helping 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. Later chapters cover more complicated nuances of the game, such as picking up spares, adding spin to the ball, and setting up shots mentally.
