Meet our Latham Bowling Program Leader:

Diane Grugan

Bowling was the sport for my family, as we used to joke that it was in our genes. I competed for my high school and was on the traveling team for Clifton Park Bowl. I have been involved with STRIDE as a parent for over 15 years, when Christian first joined STRIDE. I became the director of the Latham Bowling in 2012; in 2016 I became certified with Special Olympics as the head coach of our bowling team. It is very rewarding to work with athletes seeing them grow alongside each year and have so much fun. They particularly enjoy our Rock’N Bowl Pizza Party we have at the end of each session.
In my spare time I enjoy playing hockey, crafting, and pampering women as an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay. I’m also a LAX mom and enjoy watching my younger son Anthony play.
