Tempo / Timing Presentation

Early Ball Movement = Early Finish Late Ball Movement = Late Finish The location of the ball (armswing) in relation to each step in the bowler’s delivery. Ball Movement / Timing

The 4 Step Stroker Approach is the benchmark used for referencing and identifying (Ball Movement) timing For purposes of this (Ball Movement) “Timing” presentation All (Ball Movement) timing is referenced against the 4 step Stroker approach. Ball Movement / Timing

Stroker (Ball Movement) Timing 0:0 1:1 Athletic Pose – ball and foot have not moved Ball Start has completed : first step is completed

2:2 3:3 The ball comes down by the ball side leg at the conclusion of the second step In this position ball has a great opportunity to reach the height of the backswing by the end of the third step. The ball should have reached the height of the back swing ready to start it’s downswing on the fourth step Stroker (Ball Movement) Timing

Ball Movement / Timing Regardless of the number of steps used to deliver the ball The numeric representation for ball and foot arriving together at foul line would be: 4 : 4 5 step delivery you would omit initial first step and count the last 4 steps. 6 steps delivery only use last 4 steps of approach 3 step delivery – would use last 3 steps of Stroker approach

Types of Timing  Stroker  Early  Late “Perfect” timing only exists in textbooks! We hear statements all the time related to a bowler having Good or Bad timing. Today we want to match movement of bowler with their style and physical abilities to create “proper” timing for that bowler. A common Misconception is to determine a bowler’s timing from their initial movement or the last step. In the modern game we must pay attention to the relationship of the “ball to feet” throughout the entire approach and delivery Ball Movement / Timing

Early Ball Movement / Timing The position where the ball is ahead of the feet. Ball Movement / Timing

Late Ball Movement / Timing The position where the ball is behind the feet Ball Movement / Timing

Armswing The correlation between the armswing & tempo of the footwork is; The feet will generally follow the armswing: Slow Armswing Fast Armswing

Increasing tempo by taking faster steps and expecting the armswing (with the ball) to keep up is not going to happen. Relaxing the arm and allowing it to swing un- muscled and free will increase the speed of the armswing. The body and the mind knows that the feet must keep up with the movement of the armswing (with the heavy object). Armswing & Footwork

Before Changing Ball Movement / Timing 1.Determine if your non Stroker timing is a liability…this is very important. 2.Have a trained eye check to see how you finish at the foul line. 3.Will a change improve the overall delivery or take away a strength that comes to you naturally.
