The Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville was selected as the recipient of the International Bowling Campus Youth Development Bowler’s Ed grant program for 2016.
The Bowler’s Ed grants, in the form of mobile bowling kits, include six carpeted bowling lanes, rubberized balls and pins and instructional DVDs to assist staff in introducing and instructing the game of bowling.
Stephanie Miller, development director for the club, said the kits, valued at $2,200 each, are expected to appeal to club members who are not involved in other sports.
“With these kits, our members will be introduced to bowling not just as a recreational activity but as a sport. Members will learn the ins and outs of bowling through daily instruction, practice and competitions with a particular focus on sportsmanship and teamwork.” Abby Rinehart, unit director of the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville, said. “To align with our priority outcomes, we will utilize the equipment and resources to also instill academics, healthy lifestyles and good character within the program.”
Utilized by schools and other youth-based organizations across the nation, the Bowler’s Ed mobile bowling kits introduce children to the lifetime sport of bowling. The curriculum includes bowling fundamentals, fun fitness activities and academic lesson plans that reinforce science, spelling, math and more.
