The Henson Bowling Academy, LLC exists to help aspiring young bowlers to take leaps forward in their desire to find success in bowling. Whether that be making a high school team, earning a college scholarship, or having a professional career, we offer the training and knowledge it will take to foster success at the highest levels desired.  HBA promotes individual maturity growth and provides tools to handle the emotional swings of competition.

Enhancing each player’s innate skills creates tangible results.  In the past four years HBA students have accomplished the following:

  • Three college scholarships
  • Tens of thousands of dollars in S.M.A.R.T. scholarship money
  • Three USBC Eagle Awards
  • Six USBC youth national highs for the season
  • Multiple USBC Junior Gold Championships qualifications
  • Numerous youth tournament championships
  • Eight Ohio High School state tournament qualifiers
  • League average increases from 15 to 35 pins

HBA is based at Sequoia Pro Bowl in Columbus, OH. The students attend two 5-day workshops, one in August and one in June, as well as four 4-hour mini-workshops, one each in October, December, February, and April. Throughout the year, the students follow a regimented, individualized plan consisting of drills, private lessons, practice time, research essays, quizzes and tests, physical fitness, and nutrition.

The 2021-2022 academic year consists of three terms.
