    The seminar is part of the USBC effort to create an international coach training program and bolster the strength of federations within bowling's world governing body, the Federation Internationale des Quilleurs (FIQ).

    As part of that international strategy, USBC also plans to develop more online coach training, with the overall goal to expand USBC's reach globally through information and education. All this is in line with the continued efforts of USBC to secure a spot for the sport of bowling in the Olympics.

    WTBAPresidentKevinDornberger.jpg "The vision of this project is for more coaches and athletes to get the vital bowling information that they need, delivered from reputable international coaches," said Kevin Dornberger (pictured), who is the President of the World Tenpin Bowling Association and the Chief Operating Officer of the United States Bowling Congress, two of the most powerful positions in our sport.

    "Developing elite athletes throughout the world is crucial to the sport's future. Having knowledgeable coaches in place throughout the world is an important step in developing the future champions in bowling."
