There is a 60-person limit and spaces will fill fast, said Damon Jubb, youth coaching director for Langford Lanes Youth Bowling League.

“Our program is built on the benefits of bowling and delivered by certified coaches, Team Canada alumni and a city committed to growing our local youth bowling community,” he said.
