Coaching is a pivotal part of the sport of bowls and wheels are in motion to increase the number of coaches and the standard of help on offer to Victorian bowlers
Whether you’re a bowling beginner stepping onto the green for the first time or a decorated international bowler, coaching is essential.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a club coach making important adjustments to a newcomer’s natural style or a high-end analyst tweaking a finely-honed action, all players benefit from being coached.
This is hardly a revelation. It doesn’t matter what sport you are playing; if you want to improve then a good coach is imperative.
So where can bowlers look for help improving their game? All clubs should endeavour to have coaching available to its bowlers and the ambitious and a dedicated bowler might look outside of the club for further help. But in recent years there have been some issues with the coaching set-up in Victoria and beyond.
The good news is that measures have been put in place to rectify those issues and move towards a situation where there are more coaches for bowlers to utilise and more opportunities for coaches to train and develop.
