Guide to becoming a Level One Coach

Level One Coaching Course




The Level One Coaching Course is designed for these budding coaches who wish to coach junior and beginner bowlers. The course has been divided into two components; theoretical and practical. The theoretical components can all be completed in the candidates own time and at home. All the theoretical knowledge will be assumed in the practical part of the course which will only take one day. After this day candidates will be informed whether they are competent and will shortly thereafter receive their formal accreditation.



Minimum Requirements


Candidates must be at least 17 years of age on the date all requirements of accreditation have been successfully completed. All pre-requisites may be completed before a candidate turns 17 years of age.

Must hold a current TBA membership.
