Rec & Ed "Revels" in new youth bowling partnership

Young people in Ann Arbor have a new winter sports option starting in January, 2016. In partnership with the new Revel and Roll bowling facility (formerly Colonial Lanes), Rec & Ed will be offering a new youth bowling league for grades 1-5 and 6-9.  

Youth practice their new bowling skills at Rec & Ed's 
free bowling clinic on November 14. 

“We’re excited about this new partnership with Revel & Roll because it gives families something new to try and another opportunity to stay active this winter," said Elyse Bairley, Rec & Ed's Youth Team Sports Supervisor. "All skill levels and children in grades 1-9 are welcome to join this fun new league.”

To introduce the new bowling facility and winter league, Rec & Ed hosted a free youth bowling clinic at Revel and Roll on Saturday, November 14. About 50 students attended and received two hours of free bowling instruction. 

Theresa Schneider, a 6th grade parent from Forsythe said, “It’s a great idea to introduce kids to bowling with some guidance, hoping it will improve both their enjoyment as well as their skills.”

Success!
Rec & Ed is thrilled that Kurt Kaiser, the Director of Youth Bowling at Revel and Roll, will be providing bowling instruction. Kurt has 5 years experience coaching the Youth League at Colonial Lanes and 5 years experience coaching bowling at Skyline High School as a Bronze Level Instructor.
