In my May 2008 Bowling This Month column, I discuss some important considerations for coaching elite youth, high school and college bowlers.  These include differences between adults and teenages in the actual wiring of their brain and how this can impact coaching a bowler.  In addition, I discuss the unique sleep needs of youth bowlers as well as how to improve the self-efficacy of youth bowlers.  This is a very important piece for coaches to read.

ImageIn my continued attempt to help develop training methods for the 2-handed thumbless delivery, I offer two drills for coaches and players experimenting with this delivery.  Specifically, in this document, I provide readers with details of two drills I have created to help bowlers develop the delivery components of the two-handed thumbless delivery.  The first drill focuses on promoting the finish position as well as the hand position that leads to the success implementation of this delivery.    In the near future, to supplement this document, I plan to post a video of the proper execution of both drills.  The second drill develops the bowler’s ability to move smoothly through the unique skip-skip element of this powerful delivery.  Both drills will assist players and coaches in experimenting with or implementing practice components of the two-handed thumbless delivery.
