Best Bowling Training Tools

Bowling Release Trainer

The bowling release trainer, like the name implies, trains you how to perform a proper release. It does this by putting your fingers and your hand in the correct release position, and, when done repeatedly, it becomes muscle memory. This will build strength in your forearm, hand, and fingers and will help you develop significantly more power by improving the revolution rate and revolution axis of your ball.

Eileen’s Bowling Buddy Rev/Ball Motion Trainer

The Bowling Buddy Rev/Ball Motion Trainer is a revolutionary tool (no pun intended) that is designed to help you work on hand position, especially the position of your hand at release. You get immediate feedback on your ball motion, allowing you to see the spin axis and how changing the position of your hand affects the motion of the ball. In addition to the spin axis, you can see and adjust your revolution rate with this aid as well. This is our favorite bowling training aid!

Swing Trainer for Bowlers

This bowling pin shaped swing trainer is designed to help bowlers achieve a correct swing motion and improve their balance throughout the swing and the release. As you balance on your lead leg, raise your back leg and swing the swing trainer back and forth for as long as you can. This will greatly improve your balance and your lead leg strength. It will also train your muscles the correct straight back-straight forward pendulum motion for a more consistent swing that is easier to control. These bowling training aids are simplistic, but don't let that fool you! These aids have yielded great results on our use as well as our students' use.

Perfection is impossible in most areas of life, but with the balance bowling training aid perfect balance is absolutely achievable. The Balance Trainer Aid is the best tool for really mastering balance while you bowl.

Bowling Swing Axis Trainer

The Axis Trainer is a tool designed to help bowlers control and improve the revolution rate of their ball as well as the speed. It does this by training you the proper way to release the ball, which is bringing your fingers and hand up the back of the ball rather than around the side of the ball. This is the best and most efficient way to achieve the revolution rate and ball speed you want. This tool helps enforce the correct release, and it allows you to learn and practice the correct way to increase your ball’s rev rate and speed. This ultimately leads to better control and more power.

Two Handed Bowling Swing Trainer

This tool is designed for two handed bowlers, or those who want to learn to bowl with two hands. The two holes are placed in such a way that you can practice a two-handed swing without having to use a full-weight bowling ball. You can learn or improve the approach and position of the arms, hands and body using two hands with this training aid. It is made of solid silicone rubber and is safe on the body and the floor if dropped.
