The United States Bowling Congress announced in this news release Monday that it would hold hold 14 USBC Bronze coaching conferences the weekend of Aug. 11-12.

USBC said that Bronze certification class “provides intermediate-level training designed to increase coaching skills and professionalism. It covers topics such as fine-tuning the physical game, lane conditions and adjustments, dynamics of ball motion, giving lessons and much more. USBC Bronze certification is the next step for coaches who have completed the online USBC Coaching Level I Certification and is recommended for high school coaches.

“We want Level I coaches to have the opportunity to continue their coaching progression,” USBC Director of Coaching Development Stephen Padilla said in the release. “By having these conferences throughout the country on a weekend, we hope to reach the many coaches who might not have the time or resources to travel to a USBC Bronze conference.”

In addition to having completed Level I certification, participants must be at least 16 years old; anyone 18 or older must go through the Registered Volunteer Program’s background check before they can receive access to the certification test.

The cost for those who sign up by July 2 is $245, the cost after that through July 30 is $295, and the cost after that is $325. The maximum class size is 25.

More details are available in the release.
