Coaching is a vital part of our Club Development work at Bowls Scotland.
Coaches are at the heart of making our sport as fun and accessible as possible; ensuring players learn the necessary skills and techniques, but also continue to develop long into their career.

Bowls Scotland have a variety of support available to coaches and are always looking to help coaches develop and improve.

Coach Education

We currently run 4 formal Coach Education Courses at various clubs across Scotland throughout all 12 months of the year. These courses are designed to provide qualifications for coaches and provide them with the skills and confidence to deliver fun, safe coaching sessions within their own club.

Coach Tutor Roles

Some of our Tutors took part in a Q&A series where we found out more about them and their roles, view these below:

To ensure we can support all areas of Scotland, we are always looking for Coaching Tutors to join our team. This would involve leading Coach Education Courses locally and helping some local clubs progress along their coaching journey. We have a wide range of Coaching Tutors already, but really need some new faces from the most remote parts of Scotland, as well as a lot more female leaders.
