More for High School Bowlers and College Coaches
Chesterfield, Michigan – February 19, 2018 – Turbo Bowling Accessories is inviting the next generation of bowling stars to hone in on their skills during Turbo Tech Collegiate Expo VIII this July in Fort Worth, Texas.
Bowlers from all over the United States and several foreign countries will descend on North Texas from July 8-11 to receive instruction from professional athletes, world-class coaches, and industry experts. Session topics include equipment and arsenal choices, the physical game, spare shooting and the mental game.
Collegiate Expo gives high school students the opportunity to interact with college coaches, and learn more about the recruiting experience. The event attracts collegiate bowling coaches from all across the country, giving attendees the opportunity to meet coaches and discuss scholarship opportunities.
Seminars are also offered for parents and coaches. This year, long-time sponsor Dexter has stepped up as sponsor of The Coaches Round Table. Dexter Bowling president Tyler Jensen says Collegiate Expo is an incredible opportunity for all who attend. “Turbo does a tremendous job of conducting the Collegiate Expo,” he said. “The Round Table discussions will give us a chance to really get to know the coaches, and relate to the high school bowlers.”
Jensen says that Collegiate Expo is a chance to share the importance of footwear in the sport of bowling. “Our shoes are for everybody,” said Jensen. “The key for us is to make sure bowlers are in the proper shoe, with the proper fit, style and slide for top performance.”
Turbo has also announced that Ballard’s Bowing Academy and XBowling are the newest sponsors for the eighth edition of Collegiate Expo.
Owned and operated by long-time Turbo Staff member and Regional Sales Manager, Carolyn Dorin-Ballard and PBA Hall of Famer Del Ballard Jr., the Academy’s presence will enhance an already strong list of participating coaches. “Collegiate Expo is such a perfect fit for us to participate,” said Dorin-Ballard, a USBC and PWBA Hall of Famer. “We see such a need for education, especially on the youth level. So we’re happy to be involved in such a great event.”
Sports Challenge Network’s XBowling allows bowlers to use league scores to compete in daily and weekly contests, all from their smartphones.
Logo Infusion will again act as presenting sponsor for the 6-Game Audition Tournament, which gives students an opportunity to perform in front of a captive audience of coaches for scholarship prizes.
“Events like the Collegiate Expo simply aren’t possible without industry support,” said Lori Mraz, president of Turbo Bowling Accessories. “We’re honored that the greatest brands in bowling have joined us, and are firmly committed to developing youth athletes in our sport.”
