Pin Pals Bowling League
PLEASE STAY TUNED.
We team up with AMF El Dorado Lanes in Westchester for Mychal’s Pin Pals Bowling League. This is a 10 week session on Saturdays and all are welcome to bowl whether a seasoned bowler or a first timer. We’ve formed this league to create a social network for friends and families to gather and have fun.
Bowling is very popular with the students because they are all able to participate independently, although some still require minor assistance. We use bumpers on a few of the lanes and for the students who require it, we use a ball ramp, which ensures that all the students will succeed. Some of the students will be able, with continued practice, to bowl without the use of bumpers. For those who do not require bumpers, lanes are readily available. Bowling is also an activity that the students are able to participate in with their local Special Olympics organization. Some of the students love bowling so much that they have their own bowling balls, bags and shoes allowing them to bring a whole new element to the program that makes it an even more special experience for them.
Some of the benefits to bowling are:
- The ability to follow rules and manage turn taking
- Building independence and self-esteem
- Encourage social interaction with peers
- Encouraging their friends to succeed
- Care for personal property
