Fort Lanes Youth Bowling Canada program's third season was the best one yet. 
 
The program had their highest registration to date, with 43 kids aged three to 13 signed up in September. 
 
The coaches this year were Carol Kaehn, Gail Versteegt, Jim Roth and Steve Leckie.
 
"We had a lot of fun this year and the kids have learned so much,  we saw big improvements in a lot of our bowlers," said Kaehn.
 
In the Youth Bowling Canada program, bowlers competed in the Scratch Division (highest score bowled) and the POA Division (pins over average).
 
"As a coach it is so great to see that look of accomplishment on a young bowler’s face when they get all the pins down," added Kaehn.
 
At the wind-up party in April, everyone was awarded a trophy and a certificate.
