2018-19 Coaching course schedule

by admin

Has your club considered investing in a coach?
 
“What makes a great coach? credibility, creativity in solving problems, effectiveness in communication, as well as “an understanding that the details create success” — that small things usually make the difference between good and great.” Atul Gawande – Harvard Gazette
 
Coaches are an integral part of the functionality of any club wishing to improve. Instead of leaving it up to volunteers to apply for a course and then come to your club to help out, has your club thought of targeting a member within the club who they believe can succeed in the role? A Coaching accreditation is a four year investment which could have great impact on the results of your club and it’s members.
 
Bowls SA in partnership with Henselite and the Coaching & Junior Committee are pleased to announce the schedule for the 2018-2019 Coaching accreditation courses.
