A club coach course can be offered once we have six interested members.  The course typically runs over a Friday evening and a Saturday and gives coaches the tools and knowledge they need to introduce new bowlers to our sport. The course has been developed by Bowls Canada and the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP).
