Sunshine Bowling Center is so excited to be offering a new program geared to the younger bowlers. We will kick off our program with a summer fun league. It consists of 12 fun-filled Saturday mornings where we provide coaching and league play. You don’t need to know how to bowl or have any equipment. Here’s the scoop:

  • May 13th  9:30 AM — Begins with a “Meet the Coach / Parent / Kid” introductory meeting where everyone can ask questions and get answers. by the end of the day, the new bowler will have a team, a team name and a bowling buddy. He/she will understand how to conduct themselves at a bowling alley both on and off the lanes.

  • Bowling buddies are mentors to younger bowlers and helps younger bowlers feel comfortable. Bowling buddies are paid in Sunshine Bucks – good anytime.

  • Age range: 3 – 20. Yes, that’s a wide range but don’t worry. Your child will bowl with other youth of a similar age and skill. Teens will have a good time with other teenagers and also have a chance to serve as a Bowling Buddy.

  • The cost? The Bumper Program is priced at $8/week for 2 games of play.

    • Strike Stars play 3 games per week for $10/week.

    • Solar Eclipse Bowlers such as Junior Gold contenders receive private or small group coaching.

    • Prices include shoe rental. Bowlers are expected to pay weekly and must pay for all sessions regardless of attendance.

  • Our coaches are all USBC-certified. Our head coaches: William and Karen Elrod have had many years coaching experience. William and Karen volunteered to head up this program as they appreciate what the sport has done for their families and wish to give back to the community.

  • All our coaches (except those coaching Solar Eclipse Bowlers) are volunteers and are eager to share with your family a great bowling experience.

Bowling is a competitive sport but it is also a family-oriented activity. Parents are welcome to come watch and cheer their teams on. Bowlers walk away with a new confidence in themselves as they develop sportsmanship skills, build new friendships and get good exercise!
