HBCA Course for New Coaches: Coaching a Beginner

We have run two courses so far, with two more fully booked for September when the chaos of the summer season will be behind us and allow everyone the time to attend!

That means the County will soon have at least 46 new coaches to help with Open Days, beginners, etc. Some of the attendees are now actively pursuing gaining further coaching qualifications.

“Very informative and entertaining” - Course attendee

Follow-up Course:

The beginner’s course has been so well received that there is now a waiting list for a follow-up course which will cover head building and reading, ballistics and video analysis.

This course will also be of interest to those who have already gained coaching qualifications as it builds on the Coachbowls Level 1 or EBCS level 2.

It is hoped the first course will be run in October. Watch this space!

For further information or to book on a course, or if you have any suggestions as to subjects we should cover in the future, please telephone Anthea on 01420 560109 or email
