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.

“The 2020 season has brought new challenges and we’re proud of the hard work we have put in to protect our bowlers. With the extensive health and safety protocols implemented by City Centre Park and Langford’s COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan, our club is further enhancing the safety of our youth with our Return to Sport plan developed by us and The British Columbia Tenpin Federation,” he explained.
