Nepomuceno conducts seminars in Singapore, Philippines and Hong Kong



     Six-time World Champion Paeng Nepomuceno added to his reputation as USBC's busiest coach, as he conducted coaching seminars in three countries - Singapore, Philippines and Hong Kong - during the first half of the year 2009.

    Paeng started with a Level One and Bronze Level seminar at Chevrons Bowling Center in Singapore from March 27-29. The newly certified Bronze coaches were: Joey Miranda III (Guam Bowling Federation Secretary General), How Wang Lee, Christopher Lee, Wee Hock Lim, Felix Lee, Kan Han Chew and Ken Wee Chew.

    Nepomuceno (fourth from the right) was happy that USBC High Performance Director of Coaching, Dave Garber (fourth from the left), came over from Arlington, Texas to watch the seminar.

     Paeng next held a Silver Conference in the Philippines from June 15-17 right after the Philippine Open. The seminar took place at Paeng's Midtown Bowl and attracted eleven international coaches from Brunei, Australia, England, Kuwait, Pakistan, Malaysia and the Philippines.

    The new Silver Level coaches were: Michael Andrew Griffith(National Coach for Brunei), David Craig, Aejazuddin Shaikh, Tang Joh Six, Ling Ing Ing, Janet Shaikh, Ahmed Athery HJ ABD Samad, HJH Siti Aisah, HJ Mohd Jaafar, Dansker Tonolete, Reynaldo Reyes and Efren Guerrero.

    "There was a great exchange of opinions and observations as many coaches were experienced." Paeng said. "It is gratifying to be told that the participants were happy with how technical the Silver Seminar is and how it will enhance and benefit their bowling athletes."

     Paeng's third seminar was a Level One and Bronze Level seminar held at Mei Foo Bowling World in Hong Kong last July 13-15 and was attended in by coaches from Hong Kong, Macau and Japan.

    The new Bronze Level Coaches were: Wicky Yeung, Lau Kwun Ho, Matt Tang King Lun, Nikky Young Chi Wai, Frankie Cheung Ka Hung, Leong Kin Keong, Ho Weng Hou, Catherine Yuen Kit, Kenny Ngai Po Yuen and Yoshinobu Shimoji.

    "This seminar was interesting because there were two translators assisting the participants - one to translate from English to Chinese for the Chinese participants and another one to translate from English to Japanese for the Japanese participant." said Paeng.
