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 students 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.
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.
benefits for Young Bowlers
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.
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.
