NYS USBC Provides Grant
to Newburgh Free Academy

FEB. 1, 2018, ARLINGTON, Texas – Continuing its support of the International Bowling Campus initiative to introduce bowling to young people, the New York State USBC is funding the cost of a Bowler's Ed kit to be placed in Newburgh Free Academy's main campus.

The Newburgh school is one of 24 schools and organizations nationwide that will receive the kits -- six carpet bowling lanes with balls and pins along with a teaching curriculum – that provide educators with the tools needed to engage children in a true bowling experience by providing a bowling-center atmosphere inside a classroom or gymnasium.

The easy-to-follow curriculum features activities to enhance cardiovascular health, coordination and endurance as children are introduced to the lifelong sport of bowling.

A second New York school, St. Joseph Hill Academy of Staten Island, also will receive the kit through a grant from the IBC.

Bowler's Ed kits are valued at $2,200 and the schools and organizations were selected based on submitted applications.

Since 2009, the Bowler's Ed Grant Program, with assistance from the New York State USBC and Bowling Proprietors' Association of America member centers, has subsidized more than $450,000 in costs for more than 200 in-school bowling equipment grants to support schools and organizations in 41 states.
