TBA Announces Updates to the National Training Squad

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Tenpin Bowling Australia Limited is pleased to announce details regarding the 2018 National Training Squad (NTS) program.

The NTS concept aims to provide the best opportunities available to develop our athletes whilst effectively managing the budgetary constraints of both TBA and the bowlers.  The major change for the NTS in 2018 will be the introduction of a Head Coach for each pool of athletes (Men, Women, Senior, Youth & Junior). The Head Coaches will have the responsibility for managing one pool of athletes.

TBA is also delighted to announce the inclusion of Senior and Junior athletes to the 2018 National Training Squad (NTS).  The HP Committee who is responsible for the development of our High Performance program and pathways for athletes and coaches strongly supported the addition of Seniors and Juniors to the NTS based on feedback from athletes and coaches around lack of clear pathways for Seniors and Juniors.

TBA is now accepting Expressions of Interest from eligible bowlers for the 2018 National Training Squad for the following divisions (Men, Women, Senior, Youth & Junior).

The updated National Training Squad Policy is now available on our website here.

All bowlers that meet eligibility requirements must complete the Expression of Interest form, complete an updated Bowler Bio and forward both documents to the TBA office by 5pm Wednesday 28th February 2018.
