ARLINGTON, Texas – The World Bowling Coach Conference will return to the International Training and Research Center (ITRC) in May, bringing together coaches from around the world for an educational conference on the sport of bowling.
In conjunction with World Bowling, the world governing body for the sport of bowling, the ITRC staff will host the three-day conference from May 6-8 in Arlington, Texas.
The ITRC staff also hosted the first World Bowling Coach Conference in 2014, which featured nearly 100 coaches representing 28 countries.
This year’s conference will include presentations from 16 of the best bowling minds from across the globe, including Team USA head coach Rod Ross, European Tenpin Bowling Federation lead instructor Juha Maja and Team USA sports psychologist Dr. Dean Hinitz.
“We’re honored and excited to host such an incredible panel featuring some of the top minds in the sport,” said Ross, one of six United States Bowling Congress Gold coaches scheduled to be among the presenters. “This conference will give coaches a chance to learn, discuss and apply the necessary tools to continue to build a future for the sport.”
Topics that will be presented during the conference include detailed looks into ball motion, the physical and mental game, strategies for team play and the latest advances in coaching.
Coaches in attendance will get an in-depth look at the technology housed at the ITRC and how it is applied to coaching, including biomechanical motion analysis.
As part of the conference, participants will get the opportunity to see how bowling balls, pins, lanes and more are tested prior to becoming approved for USBC-certified competition as well as the chance to see the USBC Equipment Specifications and Certifications department’s Enhanced Automated Robotic Launcher – E.A.R.L. – in action.
The ITRC is part of the International Bowling Campus and conference attendees will have the opportunity to visit the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame as part of the three-day experience. The conference will conclude May 8 with an open-panel discussion with the presenters.
