Club Development Days

The Club Development Day is delivered by James Wilson from Bowls Australia. James is currently serving in the role of Participation and Programs Manager – South Australia. The Club Development Days are held all over SA.

Club Development Days offer the opportunity for clubs to ask any questions they may have, learn about new programs or ideas for their clubs and to mingle with other clubs in their region to brainstorm ideas. 

A major component of the Club Development Day is around the support that is offered by Bowls SA and Bowls Australia, and how this support can be accessed. 

The Club Development Day covers a wide range of areas, including: 

  • Bowls Australia & Bowls SA Overview and Programs
  • Junior Coaching/Development, including on green demonstration
  • Governance & Grants
  • Volunteer Management
  • Sponsorship
  • Diversification of Revenue & Facility Use
  • Membership Recruitment & Retention
  • Marketing & Social Media
  • Open Q&A Opportunity
