Pretty new to bowling. I started bowling for the first time with an actual hand fitted ball in December of 2017. I’ve worked pretty hard at it over the last year, and to date have my league average up to a 203. However, I’ve completely gotten stuck. I’m no longer seeming to make improvements, and have become completely lost on what to practice or how to practice in order to make further improvements. Any recommendations from anybody? Or maybe how have you worked in your individual game?

Welcome to BowlingChat and to the Sport of Bowling.

There is a coaching her that you can upload video to Youtube for expert analysis.
Only the Certified Coaches can respond so not just anybody can respond

You are already averaging 203 with a first drilling. An excellent start to your bowling career.Keep working on the same things. Spare shooting is and always will be the most important part of achieving and maintaining a higher average. Keep track of missed spares and the reasons why.

Determine your release specs and use tuned layouts and develop an arsenal to work with.
Your release specs include PAP, Speed of the hand, Revs (rpm) off the hand, Tilt and Rotation.
Knowing what you are doing to the ball and what you can do to it is important to know when you have to make adjustments in your release to strike more.

I was stuck at 208 for 3 years before I jumped to 218, not sure why, though I did get a bunch of top line bowling balls.

As Eric said, posting a video is always a great idea.
A fairly new bowler locked in at 203 and a desire to improve, bodes well for your bowling future.
It won't hurt if you look at Jim's post on the following thread.
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=14202
He cites two drills, you might compare yourself to what you'll see on the links Jim included.

Kudos on your 200+ average and your attitude.
Eric also mentioned spares, keep in mind that if pros practice spares, so should any serious bowler.

Take care.
