The Bowler’s Ed equipment kits help schools and organizations teach students the lifelong sport of bowling by providing educators the ability to engage kids in a true bowling experience. The kits provide a bowling-center atmosphere inside a school or gymnasium and feature activities to enhance cardiovascular health, coordination and endurance.
“IBC Youth Development’s outreach to parent-teacher organizations produced a great deal of applications and we’re excited to have a bowling program incorporated into so many schools through the Bowler’s Ed grants,” IBC Youth Committee chair Melissa McDaniel said. “It’s a great tool for teachers and a tremendous way to introduce bowling to the next generation.”
The Bowler’s Ed grants are expected to impact more than 35,000 children in the 42 schools and organizations. A Bowler’s Ed kit is valued at $2,200 and the New York State USBC is funding the cost of the kits to Fairley Elementary in Hannibal and Public School 11 in Staten Island.
The list of schools and organizations receiving grants:
The Bowler’s Ed grant program was developed to provide opportunities to teach students the sport of bowling with instructional curriculum and equipment available to use in school or other facilities.
In 2016, 65 grants were awarded to public/charter schools and organizations in 29 states, helping to introduce bowling to elementary school-age children.
