    The International Coach/Instructor Training seminar hosted by the United States Bowling Congress concluded on Saturday with the coaches working with students on the lanes at Olympic Lanes, a local bowling center in Milwaukee, Wis.

    2008USBCRodRoss_small.jpg 2008ICSWilliamsGarberMonce_small.jpg Within the last five days, 21 coaches from 16 World Tenpin Bowling Association member federations went through an extensive coaching program featuring USBC Silver Coaching Certification by USBC gold coach, master instructor and Junior Team USA head coach Rod Ross (left), USBC Bronze Instructor training by USBC's Rich Williams, David Garber and Bill Monce and the introduction of exclusive new coaching technologies developed by USBC by USBC Technical Director Neil Stremmel and USBC Research Engineer Paul Ridenour.

    On Saturday morning, some volunteers from Olympic Lanes experienced one the most exclusive coaching clinics ever in the history of our sport: 21 world class coaches took care of eight bowlers, almost a 3:1 ratio.

    No wonder that some of the volunteers showed tremendous progress after the one-and-a-half-hour program directed by USBC national coach Rich Williams and High Performance Director David Garber.

     The coaches (pictured left) received their USBC Silver Coach certification already on Friday evening out of the hands of USBC Chief Operating Officer and World Tenpin Bowling Association president, Kevin Dornberger.

    This USBC Silver Coaching Certification will allow them to teach Bronze coaching conferences and certify new USBC coaches in their home countries and regions.

    While Dornberger is already on his way to Albuquerque to the opening ceremony of the 2008 USBC Open Championships, the International Coach/Instructor Training seminar will officially end this afternoon with a debrief and a closing dinner.
