Local USBC Bronze Level Certification Clinic A Success!

July 23, 2015

Congratulations to the 16 individuals who attended the USBC Bronze Level Certification program held at Facenda-Whitaker Bowling Center last weekend.

The course was taught by Ron Hatfield, one the few USBC Gold Level Coaches in the country.

Over a two day period, attendees learned current practices and philosophies that will promote athlete skill development through effective coaching. Topics included: equipment, lane characteristics, the physical game, and an exercise where they were asked to evaluate real-life students on the lanes.

Special thanks goes to Larry Del Vecchio, Silver Certified Coach for coordinating this event with the USBC national coaching staff.

His efforts went a long way in making this training program a success.
