Something That Bugs Me About the USBC

So, in their training manuals for coaching, they almost universally discuss topics from the perspective of right-handed bowlers, only once in a while mentioning left-handed bowlers as an afterthought.


The concepts are the same - just the positions are mirror-images of each other.

To get around this, I try to use "ball hand/side" and "non-ball hand/side". That way any instructions use the same language regardless of the handedness of the bowler.

Maybe we can update the outdated manuals with more consistent terminology in future revisions.
