Officials: Resources

OFFICIALS RESOURCES

Officials play an integral part of the game of bowls and with the assistance of a great number of volunteer Presenters and Assessors, Bowls SA is always looking for ways to assist all officials, not only with their development, but with opportunities to excel.

As an active official with Bowls SA, this page is for you! Here you can access other resources, training and support that you can utilise at your own pace.
