This product is the 4 Steps Lawn Bowls Exercise Download, the same exercises found in the Step2 – Technical Excellence book by Stephen Forrest, modified to present the exercises in monochrome, so that customers can print on home computer printers at least expense.
The 4 Steps To Success in Lawn Bowls is a program for development of shot-making skills. The scoring system is specifically designed for players to measure and track improvement over time.
Lawn Bowls as a game is not merely about the distance that bowls finish from the Jack. It is often more important where a bowl finishes in relation to the Jack rather than the distance from the Jack. Example, there is often more value in a Bowl finishing past the Jack than one ending up short of the target. Short bowls rarely come into play in a game situation in a positive sense.
STROBE Structured Practice, presented in the 4 Steps To Success books, describes a standard set of practice exercises in diagram form, each with a descriptive dialogue that applies a scoring system for every bowl delivered. That principle is common in other practice systems.
Where the STROBE system is unique is that the scoring for all bowls is based on a valuation of usefulness of bowls in a game situation. The STROBE scoring system encourages and rewards you for playing back bowls and penalizes you for short bowls, while reserving top scores for achievement of the actual shot skill.
As you improve and more often achieve the skill result being challenged, your scores will go up over time.
