Coaching sessions

Overview of content

Four sessions covering the range of skills needed to improve your bowling. Attendance at all four sessions is required.
Week 1  - The bowling mind-set, completing a cockpit drill, checking bowling action, understanding the draw.
Week 2 - Become competent in drawing to the jack both forehand or backhand
Week 3 -  Learn the difference in weight and line between drawing and wresting
Week 4 - 16 bowl challenge, Drawing to the jack "around" exercises

An introduction to what you need to be able to mark a bowls match. Marking is needed for singles matches, mainly in competitions. It covers the duties of the marker, but also gives a good background in the various laws of the sport regarding what affects play and the results of ends. For anyone who may need to mark a match (covers most people!).

This covers situations when a little more weight is needed in the delivery than a simple draw, for instance to move a wood/woods or the jack. For anyone who finds themself playing in singles or pairs games, or in non-lead positions.

If you are playing at 2 or 3 (in triples or rinks respectively), reading the head is vital to give good advice to your skip. Skips need to know this too.
