The Play Bowls Activator Module is a 4 hour course and is an integral part of any club’s recruitment programme. It equips volunteers and coaches with information and skills to offer a fun and informal introduction to the sport of bowls.
The Level 1 course takes 2 days and enables you to coach beginners and to run the Bowls4Fun programme in your club.
The Level 2 course takes 5 days and further enables you to coach improvers through to competitive players in your club. It also enables you to assist experienced coaches who attend other clubs to coach a variety of skills according to the needs of the club being visited.
BDA Level 2 Bridging courses are available for any current Level 2 or Level 3 EBCS coach. A level 2 EBCS Coach will need to undertake a 3½ day course plus their assessment and a Level 3 EBCS Coach will need to undertake a 1½ day course plus assessment.
The Disability Module is a 3 hour course which is aimed at supporting coaches who are keen to work with
