Tenpin Bowling is an emerging sport and the regional Academies throughout NSW are working with Tenpin Bowling Australia to create a unique high performance pathway.
The Tenpin Bowling program runs annually from October to April with weekly squad training sessions focused on individual skill development. Team elements are introduced leading into competition opportunities such as Inter-Academy Days and the annual ClubsNSW Academy Games, to be held in the Hunter Region in April 2018.
In addition to on-lane training sessions and competition opportunities, athletes receive access to sport science testing and educational seminars to assist with their personal development off the Tenpin Bowling lanes.
The Central Coast Academy of Sport will hold an information evening prior to a selection trial. The selection trial will occur in early October to identify and select scholarship athletes, the program will commence in mid October.
Selection trials are advertised and promoted through the Tenpin Bowling Centres of Gosford and Bateau Bay, in addition, suitable athletes will be invited to trial by CCAS Coaches associated with the program. Applications are available online through the CCAS website or via paper applications available at the respective Tenpin Bowling Centres.
