Ever thought about becoming a Bowls coach?

Bowls Canterbury’s focus is getting more Lawn Bowl coaches in our Canterbury region. We have a very exciting opportunity for everyone with all coaching abilities. You may be starting from scratch or might be wanting to take your coaching skills further. Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 June 2023, there will be a foundation, development and an update course run for anyone to participate.

Over the winter months in the "off-season", courses are held in various locations around New Zealand where the basics of bowls and the principles of coaching are taught followed by a mentoring programme to assist with the practicalities.

Bowls Canterbury want to get more coaches in our Canterbury Region. The role of a coach is vital for every bowler, from first-year juniors to Blackjacks!
