Teach and practice each of the lessons on the board, spreading them out across the league. Go over it at the start, let them bowl, and then test them before league is over. Once everyone completes the goal, you can place their sticker on that spot. Practice and repetition are important aspects to mastering a skillset.
So that every kid can take their board game home each week to show their family, on this skill development plan we have provided you with a master poster listing each goal and a place for everyone’s name in the league. Each week, make sure to update it by checking the box or placing your own stickers or stars for the goals completed by each kid. This provides a little competition, but also the opportunity to celebrate the kids in the league.
Be aware that not everyone will complete the board or the goals each week; this provides an ongoing incentive to practice in the center. The board was designed in a way that some will complete everything during the season and some will not. That’s okay, as everyone qualifies for a chance at prizes. When the league ends, have each kid hold up their board and take a picture on the lanes. Post those pictures on your youth wall, but most importantly, make sure to submit each one to Bowlopolis@IBCYouth.com. In the subject line put: Bowlopolis Game Board
