What would be the average for a high school bowler?
« on: February 04, 2018, 08:07:00 PM »
I have been wondering this for a while. I am currently a high school bowler my self (sophomore, average 215), and I am trying to figure out something. In your opinion, what would be your guess on an "average" high school bowler? I would take my guess around 150-175. That might just be a bit low for other people. Leave your opinion about this in this post. I want to make this really interesting.

I coach a HS team in my area.  They only bowl on challenge conditions so adjust the averages accordingly:


Girls:
Best:  175+
Good:  150-174
Average:  130-149

Boys:
Best:  190+
Good:  170-189
Average:  130-169

For my area, that a little high. Can I ask a question? How hard is the challenge shot? I know there are different difficulties for that but I'm not expecting you guys to have some hard challenge pattern out there that they have to struggle on.

I would say new bowlers to the game 100-120, someone who has been bowling 2-3 years 125-145, anything over 3-5 years for bowling 160 - 180, 5+ 180-200 range

I would say that's about right for my area. I don't know exactly how long people have been bowling in my high school but I would say not for long according to averages. I really don't know exactly if the high school shoot is just house or just a challenge shot. I think it is a very easy challenge shot from what I have heard from people, but don't exactly know for sure.
