‘Coach Bowls‘ provides training and support to the coaching and volunteer workforce of bowls clubs. Through Coach Bowls’ courses, club members can obtain the nationally recognised Level 1 and
Level 2 Qualifications in Coaching Bowls. The BDA Coach Bowls membership scheme provides insurance, support and benefits to all levels of coaching, whatever code you coach. Other workshops and modules available through Coach Bowls are the ‘Time to Listen’ Safeguarding Course and the Working with Disabled People in Bowls Course.
Working with Disabled People in Bowls (WWDPB) – is a module which can be used by club volunteers including bowls coaches to improve their knowledge and confidence when working with disabled people. A course can be run within one club and all its members invited to attend. Having gained this knowledge it is hoped that clubs will look to extend their activities and provide more opportunities for those with a disability to take up the game and become integral members of the club.
More information about the WWDPB module and coaching in general can be found on the Coach Bowls website – www.coachbowls.org. Alternatively, you can contact BDA’s Coaching Manager Amanda Scriven-Purcell on 07879 631916 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
