    Junior Team USA assistant to focus on strategies for coaching female bowlers

    USBCCoachTeresaRoss.jpg The United States Bowling Congress has announced that Junior Team USA assistant coach Teresa Ross will join the organization's Coaching department. The highly accomplished USBC Silver coach based in Manteca, Calif., will join USBC Coaching after the headquarters moves its facility to Arlington, Texas, in the coming months.

    "I am very excited to take on this new challenge and am looking forward to the move to Texas and working with everyone at USBC," said Ross, whose title will be Coaching Specialist.

    Plans call for Ross to focus on researching and helping develop specific approaches to coaching female bowlers to help their performance.

    "I would like to start doing some research on women bowlers and their strengths," said Ross. "We all know that men and women differ physically. Creating strategies that benefit women to help them improve is a logical step."

    "We are thrilled to have Teresa join the USBC Coaching staff," said Co-Director of USBC Coaching David Garber. "Teresa's knowledge and experience as a coach and a highly competitive bowler will be key assets to USBC."

    Ross is the wife of USBC Junior Team USA head coach and USBC Gold coach Rod Ross, who was recently named head coach of the USBC International Training Center that will be constructed in Arlington.

    Teresa Ross has been teaching bowlers from beginners to professionals for 30 years. The 2006 USBC Developmental Coach of the Year and nominee for the United States Olympic Committee's Developmental Coach of the Year award is a Bowlers Journal International "100 Top Coaches" selection and past USBC Level I Instructor.

    Teresa and Rod own and operate Bowlers Connection, Inc., a pro shop and high-tech training center at Manteca Bowl in Manteca, Calif., considered the premier bowling training facility in the western United States.
