Reasons Why You May Need A Bowling Lesson

If your game is not “up to snuff” and you can’t seem to figure out why, it makes little sense to prolong the agony by avoiding the many services experienced bowling instructors provide.

There is not one professional bowler who has encountered any degree of success in competition who has not used a bowling instructor, or instructors, to help them develop their games.

If the pro bowlers use instructors, why wouldn’t we do the same?

Perhaps you just need to learn a little more about the game because you are not very experienced as a player. If this is the case, all the more reason to seek out the most successful coach within reasonable commute range and take a lesson to get you on the path to better performances.

Here are a list of reasons why you may need a bowling lesson:

1. you know you need more knowledge about the game, playing the lanes, making adjustments, and using the best equipment suited to your game.

2. your game has slipped a little from where it should be and your usual “fixes” are not restoring your good shotmaking.

3. you need a tune-up session with a capable pair of eyes your coach has to get you ready for an important competition.

4. a difficult or challenging lane condition forced you into making changes in your delivery style and you need to find your “best natural game” once again.

5. you need to advance your checklist of physical game adjustments to best adapt to changing lane conditions.


Remember, you need not take a series of lessons or live with your coach glued to your pair of lanes to make improvement. In all cases, it is the bowlers themselves who do the work to develop as players and not the instructors.

The instructors have a job and that is to place emphasis on the immediate needs of the student and not try to lecture on every aspect of the game.

The best coaches promote themselves less and focus more on the student’s needs.

You may need to do a little research to find a coach who you feel comfortable working with so expect to spend a bit of time until you are successful in doing so. Once you have the right coach, then a periodic tune-up can do wonders to get and keep your game on track.

If you have other physical limitations, it is important to communicate these matters with your prospective coach before making the decision to hire their services.

Once you have made your choice, then attend your first coaching session open minded and willing to work.
