    START THE SEASON WITH A COACH BOWLS QUALIFICATION
     
    Bowls England would like to remind its members that 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.

    The Level One course provides learners with an opportunity to be assessed on both the practical and theoretical aspects of coaching bowls to groups of beginner, adults and children in an appropriate environment.  The knowledge gained from this award enables candidates to develop an understanding of safe, ethical and effective bowls coaching. It will also allow Level One Bowls coaches, who are aged 18 and over, to independently deliver four taster sessions to beginners as part of the Play Bowls 4 Fun programme.

    The course is delivered over two days plus the completion of a portfolio and an assessment, and costs £130. Bursaries for coaches from Bowls England and EIBA Ltd affiliated clubs are available (see details below).

    Forthcoming Level 1 Courses with places available:
    Penrith Leisure Centre, Cumbria
    Day 1: Sunday 26th March 2017
    Day 2: Sunday 30th April 2017

    Rushcliffe IBC, Nottinghamshire
    Day 1: Sunday 26th March 2017
    Day 2: Sunday 30th April 2017

    Donyngs IBC, Surrey
    Day 1: Sunday 8th October 2017
    Day 2: Sunday 19th November 2017

    Any individual affiliated member of Bowls England may apply for financial assistance for up to 50 per cent of the cost of the course.

    Applicants must be at least 17 years old, and for Coach Bowls Level Two courses and above applicants must hold a recognised Coaching Certificate. Each application must be supported by the applicant’s club and the appointed administrator of the relevant County Association that is affiliated to Bowls England.

    The Level Three qualification will be launched later this year, aimed at coaches working with county and national level bowlers and developed by a team of highly credible and successful bowlers at International level, all of whom are also qualified coaches

    Due to demand, funding is limited to one member per affiliated club per year. Applications will be considered on a first come, first served basis.
