Pathway for accreditation (new coaches)
Coaches play a huge part in the sustainability of Bowls. Coaches are often the first person a new player meets and therefore should possess the necessary personality, skills and approach to ensure the player is welcomed and learns the appeal of bowls.

Becoming a Bowls Australia accredited coach ensures you have the most up to date information on coaching and how you can use this knowledge to assist your players.
