In-kind support of bowling curriculum materials and equipment to USA schools, bowling centers, and associations to benefit K-8 students. The program is designed to introduce school-age children to the sport of bowling and to promote a lifelong enjoyment of the sport. Funding is intended to foster youth and community health and fitness programs, maintaining the value of sportsmanship, character development, and leadership skills, while providing research, education and training for the bowling community and its athletes.
The Bowler’s Ed program accommodates students irrespective of gender, physical or natural ability. Children acquire skills toward the lifelong sport of bowling that builds strong bones, burns calories, promotes balance and coordination and develops sportsmanship. Teachers can have 5-6 students actively participating in the Bowler’s Ed activity at a time, so engaging the entire class is not an issue. The Bowler’s Ed curriculum has “activity stations” inserted into bowling activities to increase cross curriculum opportunities engaging the entire class in busy healthy, safe and educational activities.
The Bowler’s Ed equipment provides educators and youth organizers the ability to engage kids in a true bowling experience offering an atmosphere similar to a bowling center inside the gymnasium. The Bowler’s Ed curriculum organizes activities for 5-6 students per lane allowing for a maximum participation of 30-36 students across six In-School bowling lanes.
