FAQs about Find a Coach,
and Welcome to Bowling
NOVEMBER 30, 2011 -- The USBC Coaching Certification and Development department has received several questions pertaining to "Find a Coach", Coaches Association and the Welcome to Bowling program. A look at some of the questions:
Q: How much does it cost to join the Coaches Association?
Standard membership is free to all active USBC certified coaches at all levels. Premium membership is $60. Go to BOWL.com/coaching and click on the Coaches Assoc tab.
Q: I'm a USBC certified coach. Why is my name not listed under "Find a Coach"?
Coaches must activate their Coaches Association membership each year (beginning Aug. 1) in order to be included. Legally, we are not permitted to post personal information on the site without a coach's permission.
Q: I was listed under "Find a Coach" last year but I just noticed my information is no longer there. Why was my name removed?
Joining or activating each year gives coaches the opportunity to review and edit their listing. If you are an active Bronze, Silver or Gold coach, you will need to activate your Coaches Association member to be listed under "Find a Coach". Those who were certified prior to Jan. 1, 2006, and have not started, completed, or passed the recertification exams will not be able to add their information to the "Find a Coach" page.
Although Standard membership is available at no charge, coaches choosing the Premium option must renew annually in order to be covered under the $1 million liability insurance policy.
Q: I recently became a certified coach and want to get my Coaches Association membership. Where do I start? And what do I need to do if I previously had a membership?
We have created tutorials for each new and returning members. Please select the one that applies to you:

Q: I signed up as a participating coach for the new Welcome to Bowling program. Where is this information located and why is my name not listed under "Find a Coach"?
The Welcome to Bowling program is a separate listing for coaches who want to help new and returning bowlers by providing a 30-minute lesson for $20.
New USBC adult members will receive a postcard with details about the program, including a link to BOWL.com/welcome where the new bowlers can watch helpful video tips and see the list of participating coaches and pro shops.
If you are not currently a part of this new program, please email us at email@example.com. If you also wish to be listed under Find a Coach, please refer to the instructions above.
Q: I have a User ID and password for the education.bowl.com site. Why doesn't it work when I try to log in and activate my Coaches Association membership?
BOWL.com and education.bowl.com are two separate sites requiring separate login information.
