The purpose is to equip both new and existing coaches and volunteers with some basic knowledge, information and skills to offer a fun, informal and relaxed introduction to the sport of bowls. A new bowler’s first impression of the sport is often the difference between them taking up membership of a club or not.
This event is run by Coach Bowls, the scheme newly appointed to deliver Coach training for BCGBA members. To book a place or find out more information visit here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/coach-bowls-activator-course-4-hours-tickets-42922948695

In line with North Midlands County policy, all coaches are also expected to hold a valid DBS (police record) check. These need to be BCGBA organised checks. Costs are free. It is hoped this can be handled on the day for those who don’t already have a valid DBS, but this is to be confirmed.
