Teaching Youngsters About Bowling

Jan 4, 2008
When a small child enters a bowling alley for the first time, they could get very scared by what they hear. A bowling alley is a very noisy place because there might be fifty or so people rolling balls down the alleys at one time. The bowling balls will be fashioned in many colors and children will usually like watching them, even if it is from a distance. A parent will introduce the child to bowling by getting them bowling shoes at the counter.

A small child might get a chance to roam about the building if there are other siblings in the group. Most bowling alleys will have an arcade in them that offers pinball machines and air hockey games that will require the children to ask their parents for coins to play them. While children are playing in these safe areas, the parents have the chance to sign up for a lane and get all the shoes that the family will need in the correct sizes.

There are special sized bowling balls that even the smallest bowler will feel comfortable with, and the parents will explain the rules of bowling so that the child is afforded the opportunity to play their leveled best. Some families will afford a small child a small handicap, by allowing them to use bumpers when they bowl. These bumpers can be raised and lifted very easily and will keep the ball from turning into the gutter when the youngster fails to throw it with enough strength.

The youngster might not have to learn how to score when they bowl for the first time. Many bowling alleys have adapted the use of automatic scoring programs to make the time at the bowling alley more enjoyable. The staff at bowling alley's across the country are very willing to provide training on these automatic scoring systems and that training is very enjoyable too because it is just another activity that the entire family can do together. Families can take an active part in the scoring system by typing in each family member's name into the machine. Young children are thrilled when they see their name light up on these screens.

A youngster will have to learn where they can find a bowling ball, and the correct way to throw it down a bowling lane. They will also have to learn the common courtesies that are practiced by all bowlers and one of them is giving the player to the right of their lane the right away on throwing their ball down the aisle. That courtesy will be passed on to them when another family is assigned the lane to the left of their own.

Children will learn about wearing socks with their bowling shoes because there are many other people that use them too. They will also learn to appreciate how close the restrooms are located to the particular lane that they are own. Children will fall in love with the concession stands because they will learn that pizza is prepared there. A cool drink will make the time bowling more pleasurable and Mothers will love the night off from cooking dinner.
