Monday, 26 November 2007

Image In the December installment of Slowinski at-large, I introduce the idea of an international bowling skill score number as a method to evaluate a bowler's overall skill level (versatility, accuracy, power, repeatability & knowledge).  I believe an International Bowling Skill Score Number system will allow us to compare any two bowlers worldwide.  With the use of C.A.T.S. or DigiTrax with Bowlers Map, coaches can assess players allowing a more thorough identification of strengths and weaknesses.
