JUNIOR MASTER Certificate Program

The “Junior Master Certificate” (JMC) Program was created in 2000 for youth bowlers who were seeking long-term coaching.  It incorporates a unique scoring system that takes the student’s mind off of the score and putting it on the task at hand. By rewarding points on the quality of performance of each shot, each ‘game’ (specific drill or drills) allows the student to work towards accumulating the necessary points to earn framed certificates.  It's those tangible rewards that keeps a young bowler's interest during long-term training.

While originally designed for young bowlers, JMC drills work very well for a bowler of any age and any skill level.  The beauty of JMC drills is that they can be used individually, or combined, creating literally dozens of ways to target improvement on any aspect of a bowler's game.

Additional benefits for Young Bowlers

The way in which I coach young bowlers allows me to introduce "other" areas of learning during our training sessions.  Mathematics and vocabulary are the most popular subjects incorporated into JMC sessions.  Development of both physical abilities as well as critical thinking skills is at the heart of any JMC training session. 

Honesty and integrity are qualities that are encouraged and rewarded during all JMC training sessions.  Periodically, students are asked his or her thoughts on particular aspects of a shot thrown.  When a student answers honestly, which most do, I make a special mention as to their honesty and reward them with "bonus" points.  By rewarding honesty a positive message is conveyed developing the concept of integrity encouraging like behavior elsewhere in that young person's life.
