Have you ever wondered what you can have your students do in the winter that is fun, energetic, indoors and can end with them standing tall as a state champion? Have them join the Dansville bowling team!
The MHSAA has identified bowling as one of the fastest growing participant sports throughout the state, and both boys and girls bowling recently broke their own high school athlete participation records. Bowling is growing for a good reason too as Dansville bowling coach Steve Sutfin explained.
"It is fun! We've been fortunate in Dansville so far that we've had really good kids that have blended really well. We've only got a boys team right now and that's surprising because we've got a lot of girls that are involved in sports but not necessarily winter sports. I've been begging for five to six girls just once to get started because I think once they get started and they can see how much fun it is and how competitive it is. I think they'd enjoy it. I really do; I think we could be really successful."
Did you know that there are 43 NCAA member schools that offer Div 1 or Div 2 Women's Bowling and only 2 schools that offer scholarship bowling for Men.
If you are a high school student who enjoys being a part of things but is worried about being a competitive bowler. You needn't worry the coaches at Dansville have proven they will help you get better.
"I've had to work with kids who have never picked up a bowling ball before, I had one kid a lefthander, first game he threw was a 42...he ended up averaging 190." Sutfin said.
If you are sitting on the sidelines this winter but want to get into a game that is fun, competitive and can lead you to a long high school career - then consider bowling. You might be surprised and find that it's right up your alley!
