Bowls Victoria acknowledges a real need from Clubs and their members to access quality coaching and ongoing coach development. Many outstanding coaches work across Victoria in and across Clubs, but not every Club has access to these expertise. To cater for the gap in quality coaching, Bowls Victoria is resuming an expert coaching program called CoachForce. 

What is CoachForce? 

CoachForce is a user-pay program designed to assist Clubs and their members access a range of expertise to support both on-green and off-green coaching and officiating. The program allows Clubs and their members to book a session and have a Bowls Victoria CoachForce presenter deliver sessions in a range of formats. Previously, CoachForce was designed with only one stream, we now see CoachForce being delivered in various formats. 

High-profile player – high energy group session with one of our high-profile players  

Arm Bowling – group training session targeted at your arm bowlers  

Officiating – group training session covering marking, measuring and law practice  

Female only – group training session for females only
