ARLINGTON, Texas—The Philippines’ Paeng Nepomuceno, one of the most highly regarded international competitors and coaches in the world of bowling, will receive his Gold level coaching certification and award during the World Coaching conference at USBC (United States Bowling Congress) general headquarters here in cooperation with the World Tenpin Bowling Association.
USBC Gold is the highest certification for coaches, much like receiving a doctorate in a field of study. Paeng is one of only 25 active coaches to currently hold the designation.
“Paeng is one of the most respected competitors in the history of bowling and he continues to give back to the sport through coaching,” said Neil Stremmel, USBC Managing Director, National Governing Body. “He is committed to teaching coaches throughout the world and we’re pleased to have him join the elite rank of USBC Gold coaches.
Nepomuceno, 57, USBC’s International Ambassador for Bowling, has teamed with USBC for more than seven years to promote bowling and coaching. He has taught Level 1, Bronze and Silver seminars throughout the world.
“The World Coaching conference will be hosted by the International Training and research Center and it will be held from March 27-31 in cooperation with the World Tenpin Bowling Association. The said conference will bring coaches from 20 countries together and it will give the coaches an opportunity to see what is being taught worldwide. Many international and domestic coaches will be presenting the latest informative material that will help increase the knowledge of coaches,” said Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, Director of Coaching Certification and Development Department.
The USBC Coaching Certification and Development Department conducts classes throughout the world to help train and certify coaches.
Nepomuceno is one of the most successful international bowlers of all time. He is a six-time world champion, becoming the youngest world bowling champion at 19. He has won 125 career titles worldwide.
