Numbers are down for youth bowlers in the Fort.
Last year at the beginning of the season, the Youth Bowling Club at Fort Lanes started with 43 participants;  this year they only have 22 signed up.
"Anybody can do it, it doesn't matter your skill level or age, we have kids with special needs that are actually part of our program as well. It's great because it really is a an all-inclusive program, said Carol Kaehn, coach of the Youth Bowling Club
The program runs for kids ages three to 19.
"Bowling is really about competing with yourself, but you are still on a lane with as team, so you still learn about being on a team and cheering for each other," Kaehn said.

Registration is ongoing, so bowlers can join at anytime during the season which goes until mid-April.
"If anyone decides even a month or two down the road that they're looking for something because their activity has ended, they can still look us up," Kaehn added.
Weekly competitions are at Fort Lanes, but bowlers can also go to tournaments in the Edmonton area. More information can be found here.
