Coaching is vital to the long-term development of the sport of bowls.
Coach Bowls is the only nationally recognised coaching qualification for the sport of bowls in England – the latest course availability can be found below.
Qualifications are delivered in partnership with 1st 4 Sport, as the awarding body, and all successful candidates receive an externally accredited qualification that is regulated by Ofqual (The Government body for the award of national qualifications). Coach Bowls qualifications are wholly recommended by Bowls England and the English Indoor Bowling Association Ltd.
Coach Bowls uses the UK Coaching Framework as a guideline for development, and its stated aim is to provide ‘a world class bowls coaching system for all’.
