Take the next step and become an active bowler at Tarring Priory

Jim Davis appointed to run Tarring Priory Coaching 

As the newly appointed coach of Tarring Priory Bowls Club I am writing to introduce myself and outline the coaching that will be available to all members free of any charge. I have been coaching for over 10 years utilising the methods and procedures of The English Bowls Coaches Society (EBCS).

For new bowlers four sessions, each of one and a half hours, will be necessary taking the bowler through all basic aspects of the game. Times and dates will be negotiated between the coach and bowler as conveniently as possible. At the initial session the member will be shown details of what each session will cover and will be theirs to retain after completion of the four sessions. Additionally the new bowler will be handed a booklet "New Bowlers Getting Started" containing information about the club and the game of bowls which can act as a reference document for the future. This booklet is also available to all existing members @ £1.50 per copy. Upon successful completion of the four sessions a certificate of achievement will be issued.

For existing bowlers coaching is available for any aspect that they may feel required some improvement and slow motion video can be offered to highlight certain specifics such as stance, delivery etc. Additionally ideas on purposeful practice routines can be offered.

It has been agreed that for those new bowlers who have joined the club within the last couple of seasons a skills competition will take place on Saturday 31st August 2024 from 10.00am which will be free to enter. There will be six disciplines to partake in with points awarded in each one. The winner will be determined by total points scored overall. Details of the disciplines will be posted on the new coaching noticeboard when it has been erected  in the near future thus giving you the chance to practice these as often as you would like.  This is a unique opportunity to participate in a club competition among those of similar abilities as opposed to facing vastly more experienced bowlers. It is also the club's way of making you feel more welcome. To enter please email me using the link above.

I look forward to seeing you  on the green between May to September.

Kind Regards

Jim Davis
