Bowling Tips

NEW...for 2016!

The summer of 2016 will mark the 39th year of the Dick Ritger Bowling Camps. Thanks to all the 'Ritger' bowling camp graduates for their support!

This summer the 'Ritger' programs will continue to provide bowlers with a wonderful bowling experience as we offer more than a dozen locations where you can improve your bowling game.

A major change will be seen this summer in the New York programs. In 2016, we will be moving our camps to several locations to better serve the bowlers in New York state. Clinics are scheduled in Fishkill, NY; Rochester,NY; Long Island; and Latham, NY. By coming to local areas we will be able to keep the cost down to the bowlers and yet still provide the best teaching program bowling has to offer.

Check out the website to see the exact locations and dates for the programs. We hope to see you at one of the camps. NOTE: There will not be a housing, meal nor transportation package included in any of the programs for 2016. Our 4-day camps run from 9:30am until 4:00pm.


If you have questions, please let us know. We may reached by phone or email.Phone: 1-800-767-2695 and email: info@ritgerbowlingcamp.com

For over thirty years the Dick Ritger Bowling Camps have provided thousands of students with professional bowling instruction that has resulted in dramatic improvement of their performance. Among our graduates we celebrate Kelly Kulick, Patrick Allen, and many others who have reached the top of college, youth and Professional rankings.

The Ritger Method incorporates exclusive methods of teaching, with a bowler’s physical game improved by working within the comfort of their ‘style’. We teach a progression of bowling fundamentals that insure success.

Bowling camp highlights that will be covered in depth inlcude:

  • Physical aspects including release, balance and timing
  • Reading Lanes
  • Strike pocket adjustments
  • Spare shooting

The result is that you will consistently make shots, adjust to lanes more quickly and convert a higher percentage of your spares; overall becoming a more knowledgeable and efficient bowler.
