Ken Meryman has been the Youth Director at Mira Mesa Lanes since 2013. He is a strong supporter of their youth program having hosted the Pepsi District Finals in 2012, 2015 & 2018. Ken has organized many fundraisers for the Mira Mesa Youth Program while also finding outside sponsors to help offset the lineage for his youth house tournaments and to help increase the scholarship funds.
During the holiday season, his youth bowlers conduct opportunity drawings during adult leagues to raise money and then shop for toys with the local Marines. The center also promotes Toys 4 Tots and is an official drop off location.
On the lanes, Ken is also a great coach giving the youth opportunities to bowl on different sport patterns and helping some of the older youth bowlers with getting to the next level. His monthly youth house tournaments are extremely challenging, which help push the youth to learn faster and gain invaluable experience.
