Boardwalk Bowl’s Youth Bowling Program is the Largest in U.S.

Over 500 children enrolled in Boardwalk Bowl’s youth bowling leagues

Boardwalk Bowl ’s youth leagues have a total of 520 youth participants between the ages 3 and 18 years old. The program’s exponential growth can be attributed to its affordable pricing, short sessions, exceptional coaching team and fun events planned throughout the year. With such a wide age range, the league focuses on catering to each player’s skill level with specialized coaching. 

“Over the years, Boardwalk Bowl’s youth bowling program has grown exponentially. Our coaching team is devoted to sharing their love of the sport with the kids and helping them grow their skills,” said Erik Galganski,  Boardwalk Bowl ’s Youth League Director. “This wouldn’t have been possible with the help of Gold Coach Pat Costello who works with our top-tier youth bowlers, Bronze Coach Mark Quick who helps newer bowlers perfect the fundamentals, Linda Navedo who helps arrange great bowling opportunities, and Amanda Murray who assists with marketing and raising awareness in the community.”

Boardwalk Bowl ’s youth leagues are led by certified USBC Gold and Bronze Coaches. Through the leagues, the junior bowlers are able to participate in city and state competitions as well as have the opportunity to apply for scholarship programs.  Boardwalk Bowl ’s elite Junior Gold Program continues to grow top-tier youth bowlers and even provides them with opportunities to attend national bowling events.

The program was able to thrive amidst the pandemic by adhering to face covering and social distancing guidelines. The leagues plan to continue to grow while supporting the community and enhancing relationships with local schools. 

Anyone under 18 is welcomed and encouraged to join any of Boardwalk Bowl’s youth programs, including:

  • Saturday Morning Program (Saturdays at 10 a.m.)
  • Adult Youth Program for parents and children (Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.)
  • Homeschool Program (Mondays at 1 p.m.)
  • Junior Gold Program for advanced youth bowlers (Mondays at 7 p.m.)

Boardwalk Bowl’s sister centers, Aloma Bowl and Airport Lanes, are both home to similar programs.

“At  Aloma Bowling Centers , we want to set our junior bowlers up for a lifetime of loving the sport,” said Kendra Cameron-Curry,  Aloma Bowling Centers’  Regional Director of Bowling. “We’re honored to coach so many children in our local community across all three of our centers. Under the direction of Erik Galganski at Boardwalk Bowl, Jennifer Gray at Aloma Bowl and Mary Holtzapple at Airport Lanes, we’re able to provide the best youth bowling programs in Central Florida.”
