The club has twelve active certified coaches, all club members, who volunteer their time to coaching potential and new members, particularly in the early part of each season.
Wayne and Brenda Edwards are the Coaching Co-ordinators for 2013 and can be contacted at 250 248 9953. They will be pleased to arrange your coaching needs and to help iron out those bugs which every bowler faces as they learn to play the game.

During the last week of April the club offers a series of lessons for anyone interested in the sport of lawn bowls. For a fee of $15, an individual can receive 3 lessons from our qualified coaching staff. These lessons will be scheduled in the mornings, however alternate arrangements for coaching can be made when necessary, subject to the availability of a coach. When a new player joins the club after taking the initial 3 lessons, a further set of 3 lessons will be scheduled the following week at no extra charge.
Athlete Development Program (ADP)
The club offers an ongoing ADP on most Friday mornings during the months of May, June and July. Open to all members, we especially encourage our novices to attend regularly. The program identifies performance standards, conducts skills assessments, and provides advice on practice techniques. Participants will improve skills, gain knowledge and confidence, and increase their enjoyment of the game.
