Each week, bowlers will play two games,  a PBA and USBC hall of famer will be on hand occasionally for free coaching, there is a 10% discount in the Pro Shop on the purchase of a new bowling ball, bag or shoes, and each bowler will also be given a Jefferson bowling team t-shirt to wear each week. 

The cost per bowler will be $70 for the 10-week program; and there is an option to have a meal included at Sparta Lanes for an additional $27.50 ($2.75 per week) for a total of $97.50.  The meal would include a small drink with a hot dog or chicken nuggets each Thursday during each of the 10 weeks of the program.
