There were no youth scores reported for the week.

Spare shooting is still the major problem with most average bowlers. Practice is certainly a major factor but the delivery is also a problem for many. You need to focus on your target, start your delivery with the ball in line with your shoulder and your target, push straight towards your target then relax so that gravity takes over on the downswing. Your knee on the sliding foot should be bent during the forward swing of the ball. This keeps your shoulders ahead of the ball during release and follow-through. I like to see bowlers keep some weight on the non sliding foot; drag the toe to help staying balanced during the critical release time.

Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!
