Special Programmes

OVERSEAS TRAINING CAMPS

Bowling Academy student-athletes have opportunities to travel overseas – not only for competitions, but also to learn from and train with experts and stronger players. Special funding is set aside so that our student-athletes can have the opportunity to be exposed to different bowling styles and to broaden their knowledge of the sport.

Selected student-athletes have had the chance to travel to Korea, Sekolah Sukan Tungku Mahkota Ismail  (SSTMI) in Malaysia, and Kegel Training Centre in Florida, United States, where they learnt technicalities of the sport to understand the game better and give them an edge over their competitors. Bowlers who have gone for such training camps have benefited greatly, showing in their competition results shortly after returning from the overseas stints.
