MASTER Certificate Program
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 keep a young bowler's interest during long-term
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
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
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.
