Hi there,

My girl is interested to learn bowl any contact for coaches...

Many thanks!!
There are many bowling coaches and even a few schools. You can check out http://www.singaporebowling.org.sg/ for the certified ones. All their contact details are up there.

What level is your child? Singapore Sports School also offers free training, under the JSA program, thrice a week. I think they take from P4 onwards. You can ask your primary school about it.

And be prepared for a heavy investment! But it's all worth it if the child enjoys the sport :D

BTW, there's Strike Academy and AGAPE. These offer group training at an affordable cost for beginners.

.

You may want to try either Strike Academy or Agape. My DS also started with beginners' group training. They moved on to better coaches when they want to play more seriously and competitively. P4 is a gd time to start actually. By P6 she'll be ready for DSA.

What is needed to ensure a place in the secondary school which offer bowling? Esp when the primary school doesn't offer bowling.

He can only be ensured a place if he has an outstanding track record that sec Sch coaches want him. For starters, he'll hv to participate in tournaments. Since Pri Sch no CCA, I dun know abt private coaches, but Strike and Agape schools can form teams for them to participate. usu need a team of 4 of same gender- boys team or girls team.

You can go to http://www.singaporebowling.org.sg/resu ... ivision=LB for an idea. This is last year March's tournament's results. This is only a rough gauge as the better bowlers who had previously made it to the Masters are excluded from Novice tournaments.

Outstanding bowlers will be those who are consistently in the top range, and making it to the Masters. They are almost ensured a place to top schools. The rest of the bowlers will try for a place in schools with bowling CCA.
