If you are truly serious about being a better coach, read "Do we need lanes to practice Bowling?" written by Eric Couralt, High Level Director & National coach, Fédération Française de Bowling et de Sport de Quilles. The article also has seven links to video of the coordination activities. This is truly exciting new material that will help us better understand bowler development and youth development.

Simple answer. NO.
A lot of things you can do without beeing on the lanes. Specially practicing specific parts of the approach or the release.
Bowling is a sport, wich requires good coordination, endurence, physical and mental strengh. It is good to look into different sports and see how they develope skills. Bowling is more than throwing a bowlingball down the lane and nock down 10 pins.

If you bowled them unopposed, then they don't count. :D

That's hilarious! Similar to me and golf. I am a scratch golfer on the range!! Especially those mats...

Anyway there are a lot of things you can do off the lanes. Mental reps. Visualize the shot you want to execute *where uou stand and throw* ect... and practice visualization of executing the shot as you see the pins carry.

For the physical side of things I like to either use a football or a cheap dollar store plastic ball and practice my release. With the football I just throw it up in the air underhand simulating the release. Same with the ball except I throw it into the wall *its light enough to do so*.

Another thing I like to do *got this from a local hall of fame inductee * grab your bowling ball and simulate your stance right before your release. Get your hand position in your desired release position and get into a nice sized knee bend with the trial foot off of the floor for a good 10-20 seconds a few reps of these and you'll be feeling it in the morning! This drill should strengthen the muscles used and needed to post better shots more consistently.
