COACHING

The future of bowls (like most sports) depends on attracting the next generation from an early age. Without whom clubs, which very often lie at the heart of both the sporting and social life of local communities, would be in jeopardy.

Hence why we have significantly improved our outreach work. Firstly, by investing in several members to attend Bowls Scotland accredited coaching courses. And, secondly, by purchasing new and improved coaching equipment including an indoor bowling carpet and several sets of junior bowls.

Much of the funding of which has come from local grants. Most recently, The Agnes Watt Trust Fund and Falkirk Council's 2008 Community Schools Charity.

Working closely with Active Schools Falkirk, we are keen to develop a close relationship with children and young adults from Laurieston and the wider district of Falkirk. In particular, schools, youth and community groups. Many of which have accepted our offer of a free taster session.

As a result, we run a weekly coaching class on Sunday mornings which is open to people of all ages. And for the last couple of years, have hosted a midweek coaching class for pupils from local primary schools. An offer which we hope to extend to students from Graeme High, Braes High and St Mungo's High.

For more information on how to book a taster session or attend a coaching class - both of which can be delivered indoors and outdoors at our club, or indoors at your premises - please contact our club coaches on coaching@lauriestonbowlingclub.com
