What is a Lane Ranger

Become a Lane Ranger

Lane Rangers are trained facilitators who deliver the program. They’re friendly, approachable, staff who coach participants through the Bowl Patrol levels. This document outlines the steps to becoming a Lane Ranger.

WHO CAN BE A LANE RANGER? Anyone can become a Lane Ranger, start with registration and online training, then provided you have a current working with children clearance – you can connect to your local tenpin bowling centre. This might include; parents, teachers, carers, older siblings, students, support workers, new or existing coaches (not necessarily tenpin bowling), centre party hosts, existing bowlers, high performance athletes or any others!

Lane Rangers are selected for programs based on specific skills sometimes including tenpin bowling coaching qualifications, experience in working with children and parents, and capacity to deliver the program. They undergo specific ‘Lane Ranger’ training equipping them with the skills and resources to run a successful program.

Interested in becoming a Lane Ranger? Click here to register as a Lane Ranger upload a copy of your current working with children check.
Then complete online training, when you submit your quiz, we’ll know you’re done! We’ll send a certificate and access to the online portal for all the resources.

WILL I GET PAID? Some programs, where there is funding and/or income, can cover a payment for the Lane Ranger. We recommend $300 for the entire 8-sessions. This acknowledges the effort required to set up/pack up and liaise with parents/carers, the centre and Bowl Patrol administration.

You can also talk us (Contact Us) or your local tenpin bowling centre. Why not get started with a certified Tenpin Bowling Australia accreditation, such as the ‘Level 1’ online course? Find out more about coaching on Tenpin Bowling Australia’s website.
