Help Coaches Grow The Game

posted Mar 10, 2019, 8:31 AM by Malcolm Fletcher
Recruiting new coaches and running coaching sessions for clubs to attract new members are the vital cogs to try and grow the game in Mid Shropshire land.

It's a message that County Development Officer Pauline Wilson continues to hammer home after a year in the post.

"Some leagues are very well represented by coaches, but large areas of the county are not," said Pauline.

"So please bowlers, think seriously about becoming a coach. We really need you in order to grow our sport – so don’t be shy."

Shropshire, with Bridgnorth-based Wilson to the fore, is leading the way when it comes to getting coaching recruits qualified - and will host another Level 1 Coaching Award course for new body Coach Bowls on May 11 and June 22.

"There is still a substantial subsidy of 50 per cent available from the BCGBA, and tdhe SCGBA will contribute towards the cost, so I am looking for volunteers to step forward," added Wilson.

"And the Shropshire coaching team are open for business once again this year.

"We did 20 visits to clubs last year and would really like to surpass that in 2019.

"So whether we have been to you before, or you would like us to visit for the first time, please contact me to arrange a visit.

"We can deal with all abilities and offer more than just the basics so do get in touch (telephone 07746-224824 or email porinkan@gmail.com)."

And before the season starts, the AGM of Shropshire Coaches is at Old Shrewsbury BC on Saturday16th March at 10am.
