    2009KTCLogo.jpg The Kegel Training Center has announced the introduction of new products and services designed to support elite teams and the coaches of these teams. These products and services include targeted assistance to bowling federations around the world as well as college and high school teams in the United States.

    The Kegel Training Center in Lake Wales, Florida is the Official Training Center of the Professional Bowlers Association. The facility is the world's most unique training facility with 12 lanes - each featuring the Computer Aided Tracking System (C.A.T.S.) - and video analysis with cameras from three different perspectives.

    The Training Center has the flattest lane surfaces in the world. A scientifically-designed system of chains more than two miles long beneath the facility allows for the adjustment of lane topography to be adjusted every 24 inches.

    As part of this initiative, the world-class coaching staff of the Training Center will be available to travel on-site, anywhere in the world, to train bowlers and coaches as well as develop customized programs such as team training programs, youth development programs, coach development programs and pro shop operations. They will also be available to assist with team tournament preparation, long-term bowler development, clinics, etc.

    On-site training would include the use of portable C.A.T.S. and in-depth video analysis. The Kegel Training Center coaching staff are the world leaders in the evaluation of the physical game with video analysis and the interpretation of Computer Aided Tracking System (C.A.T.S.) data in regard to ball motion.
