Coaches are vital to the sustainability of bowls. Coaches are often the first person a new player meets and therefore should possess the necessary personality, skills and approach to ensure the player is welcomed and learns the beauty of bowls. Becoming an accredited coach ensures you have the most up to date information on coaching including techniques the successful Australian team are using and how you can use technology to assist your players.
