ARLINGTON, Texas – Paeng Nepomuceno, one of most regarded international competitors and coaches in the world of bowling, recently earned gold level coaching validation through USBC Coaching Certification and Development, making him Asia’s first and only USBC gold level certified coach.

Nepomuceno, 56, USBC’s International Ambassador for Bowling, has teamed with USBC for more than six years to promote the sport of bowling and coaching. He has taught Level 1, bronze and silver seminars throughout the world.

“As a coach, for me, knowledge is a never-ending thing,” Nepomuceno said while working toward his gold level validation at the International Training and Research Center in Arlington. “It will make me work harder so I can develop more coaches, and the coaches I train will develop more bowlers. Hopefully, it will get my sport in the Olympics some day when we develop more coaches and more bowling athletes. That’s my ultimate goal, to help others.”

The USBC Coaching Certification and Development Department conducts classes throughout the world to help train and certify coaches.

USBC Gold is the highest certification for coaches, much like receiving a doctorate in a field of study. Paeng is one of 25 active coaches to currently hold the designation.

“Paeng is one of the most respected competitors in the history of bowling and he continues to give back to the sport through coaching,” said Neil Stremmel, USBC managing director,  “He is committed to teaching coaches throughout the world and we’re pleased to have him join the elite rank of USBC Gold coach.”

Nepomuceno is one of the most successful international bowlers of all time. He is a six-time world champion, becoming the youngest world bowling champion at 19, and has 124 career titles.

The United States Bowling Congress serves as the national governing body for the sport. USBC is a membership organization that provides standardized rules, regulations and benefits to make bowling fair and fun for everyone.
