It is that time of year again where the start of the season is right around the corner and our bowlers are excited to get back out on the green! The Step-Up Programme is in full swing this coming season and we would like to open this up to any player that is ready to take the next step up in their game. Proudly created and driven by Jonathan Truesdale, Step-Up is an opportunity for our up-and-coming players that want to be challenged, pushed, and seek help in creating their own pathway to reach their ultimate goals.

The programme will enable you to be challenged, and pushed and help create a pathway specific to your ultimate goals. We all sought an opportunity to grow, explore and develop our up-and-coming players in Canterbury. This programme will be extremely inspiring and rewarding and will push our players to reach their potential and offer a wide range of skills on and off the green.The trainings are designed to get people with similar mindsets to train together in a competitive, challenging way. The sessions will test your abilities through drills and competitive play. It will be a great chance to be amongst advanced, strategic trainings that will help you achieve your own goals and create your own pathway.

All of the sessions will be at the Bowls Canterbury Centre Green 4:30 pm onwards with the session starting at 5:30 pm. The training will run until 7:00 pm.

Contact Erica Ayres or Jonathan Truesdale if you are interested.

On Monday 2 October, the first session of the Step-Up programme took place. Members that are wanting to take the next step up in their game came to the Bowls Canterbury centre green from all over Canterbury and wow what a turn out! 38 players braved the weather and tested their bowling abilities. A massive thank you to Jonathan Truesdale for taking the session and driving the programme.
Next session will be Monday 6 November from 5:30 but players are welcome to come earlier for a roll up 😊
