Louisiana Bowling Proprietors of Association (LBPA) is committed to every Louisiana student learning how to bowl in PE class.
In-school bowling (Bowlers Ed) is a program designed specifically for P.E. teachers with a multi-disciplinary curriculum, free for elementary and middle schools to teach bowling in their school gyms.
LBPA has portable bowling lanes available for loan to schools, along with the free curriculum.

Louisiana Bowling Proprietors Association supports Bowlers Ed
“Every student in Louisiana learns to bowl in P.E.”
Louisiana Bowling Proprietors Association in conjunction with Bowling Proprietors Association of America support Physical Education programs by providing curricula (meeting all NASPE standards) and portable equipment so all students can learn to bowl in their gymnasium (or any space) on their campus. Bowling is the most popular life-time sport in America today.
