Who Needs Practice?

You just stand there and throw here. It's not that hard. What do you need to practice for? Maybe you'll get better through osmosis!

Griping because your average doesn't go up, thinking bowling a game before league constitutes practice, and/or calling the ten minute league warmup
period a training session, won't serve you well.
Training is a concentrated, goal-driven, and specific time devoted to their improvement of your skills.

Skill change is driven by repetition. To make something a habit, to insert it in your subconscious as a keeper, takes many reps with the specific goal of adopting the new skill.

Its effectiveness cannot be measured under fire. You have to own it so when
it's really time to test it under fire, it doesn't crumble.

Daniel Coyle, in his book the Talent Code, studied outstanding athletes and musicians and all kinds of talented folks all over the world and discovered some very interesting things about talent and skill. For example, they are grown. You may not have come onto the planet with great bowling ability but you absolutely can grow it.

Sometimes people come to their lesson and tell me they haven't practiced and they just aren't seeing any improvement for their investment in lessons.

I guess not.

Sometimes people try something once or twice in league and when it doesn't work, discard it as though the new skill had failed when actually it had no chance to succeed.

In addition to skill acquisition, training is something you must do to stay sharp competitively.

People who bowl four leagues a week, for example, are either really bad (there's no time to work on any improvement or additional skills) or think they are good enough (since there's no time to work on improvement or additional skills).

If you take the summer off, it's usually November before you are back in the groove. Sometimes that groove is the same old, same old where you are unintentionally getting your average back down where you can handle it and sometimes you start to see glimpses of the good bowler you were when you stopped in May. Either way the layoff hurt.

Train to get great and stay great.

People said coaching at the college level would be fun, exciting and challenging.
I can safely say that I wasn't prepared for everything, but as with any new adventure, you learn as you go and just enjoy the ride.
PSC Bowling is still in it's early stages my friends, and thank God for my beautiful wife, Toni Da Moude, who supports me on all of the ups and downs that come with the countless hours spent messaging, texting, emailing and driving.
This past year I have driven 30k on my Altima, another couple thousand on a charter bus, and have made so many new friends and adopted so many more kids!
Peru State College Bowling has been everything I expected and more.
And we are just getting started....

August 17, 2022
CONTACT: Steve Szabina
IBPSIA Executive Director
[email protected]
On the Web: IBPSIA.com
By Matt Cannizzaro
ARLINGTON, Texas – Peter Somoff of Federal Way, Washington, has been named
president of the International Bowling Pro Shop & Instructors Association, the
organization announced this week.
The appointment comes after Nebraska’s Dwyane DaMoude stepped down. DaMoude
had been IBPSIA’s president since 2020.
Somoff is an IBPSIA Master Instructor and USBC Gold coach, who joined the IBPSIA
Board for the first time in 2019 and became vice president in 2021.
He has spent decades contributing to the bowling industry as a competitor, pro shop
operator, coach, and expert in all pro-shop-related topics, most notably traveling the
world conducting training and seminars on behalf of Storm Products Inc.
As the new president, Somoff will focus on growing IBPSIA membership and
membership value, while creating an environment where everyone knows their opinions
will be welcomed and heard.
Establishing the organization as the ultimate resource for a broader audience also will be
a priority. That may include pro shop operators, proprietors, or novices looking for
assistance, access to the pro shop or other equipment, information sharing, new levels of
education and training, and more.
“IBPSIA used to be a place to go to get information, but that has changed in many ways,”
Somoff said. “You can see so much online now, so we have to continue to change and
grow and try to be more things. The more we can offer, the more value people will see in
being IBPSIA members, and the more others will want to be involved.”
The new IBPSIA vice president was selected by a board vote on August 16, and David
Bolt of Champaign, Illinois, will fill the role. Both office terms will continue through the
end of 2022.
Bolt has been involved in the bowling business for 35 years. As the proprietor of two
centers, which includes running the pro shop in both, he is familiar with all aspects of a
successful facility and how all the components work together.
He has been part of the IBPSIA board for nearly a decade and served as the
organization’s president in 2016 and 2017. He’s excited to be back in a lead role as
IBPSIA continues to evolve.
“IBPSIA is headed in the right direction, and I’m looking forward to being involved with
what’s ahead,” Bolt said. “You have your main lines of sight and interaction in a bowling
center, which typically are the main counter and snack bar area, but the pro shop is just as
important in serving the customers, getting feedback in a more private environment, and
growing leagues and events. It’s definitely an area that deserves time and resources.”
DaMoude will remain on the IBPSIA Board of Directors through the end of 2022 when
his two-term limit concludes. He has served a variety of roles with IBPSIA since 2018.
Outside of his pro shop expertise, he is a longtime USBC-certified coach and advocates
for youth and high school bowling.
He also has been a big part of the growth and success of Sun Valley Lanes in Lincoln,
Nebraska, over the last two decades and recently was named as the head bowling coach at
Peru State College in Peru, Nebraska.
Additionally, board member Tom Wicker of Dallas recently resigned to focus on other
projects. His place on the IBPSIA board will not be filled until the next review of
applications and selection of the board in the fourth quarter of 2022.
“We know our sport and organization are in a constant state of growth and evolution, and
we are grateful for those who continue to serve and contribute,” said IBPSIA Executive
Director Steve Szabina. “We want to wish Dwyane and Tom the best in their new
endeavors and celebrate those stepping into new roles, where they’ll help us continue our
progress and introduce new benefits and initiatives.”

The International Bowling Pro Shop and Instructors Association is for pro shop
operators, instructors, and industry supporters, who value education and the benefit of
standardization throughout the industry.
