Bowling lessons for special teens

THE Petaling District Tenpin Bowling Association (PDTBA) and Community Development and Welfare Council (Mayang) have launched an ambitious training programme for special teens. 

PDTBA president Loh Seng Kok said they would select eight youngsters with learning disabilities – autism, dyslexia, speech delay, Down syndrome, or slow learners – for the programme. 

“The youngsters will undergo two training sessions a week for the next three months. They will be under the guidance of two professional coaches,” said Loh. 

Loh, who is also the Kelana Jaya MP and Mayang Kelana Jaya chairman, said the programme’s main objective was to provide the group of special teens with an opportunity to excel in sports. 

“Mayang Kelana Jaya has been given an allocated amount of money to run programmes for the youngsters. With proper systematic training, we hope to help the players gain self-confidence, self-esteem, professional skills, and self-discipline,” said Loh. 

The second objective, he said, was to groom a pool of potential bowling talents who can participate in local and international bowling competitions. 

“Usually, organisers run just a one-day programme but we are looking at it on a long-term basis,” said Loh. “At the end of three months, the youngsters would have gained bowling skills will become role models to other special children as well.” 

Mayang Kelana Jaya committee member Agnes Chin said the selection process would give priority to highly functional special children. 

The two professional coaches given the responsibility to head the programme are Micky Un Sze Shen and Joe Tay Teck Kheng. 

Un certification level one coaching development programme has by the National Sports Council, NSC. He has 15 years of bowling and tournament experience and is currently a resident coach of the Pyramid Megalanes team. 

Tay also has the NSC level one coaching development programme certification. He has 25 years of bowling and tournament experience and is currently a coach of the Pyramid Megalanes junior team. 

Special children keen to be part of the programme must hold the disabled person (OKU) registration card issued by the Community Welfare Department. 

Closing date for registration is June 11, after which selections will be conducted.
