Stage 3 of our coaching pathway is titled "DEVELOPMENT COACH" and carries E.T.B.F. Level II status. It is ideal for those coaches who are looking to move into a more senior role with responsibility for developing bowlers into competitors.

What does Development Coach certificate qualify me to do?

The Development Coach will build upon the foundation of a bowlers game, develop an ability up to around the 200 mark and instill the skills required to compete in tournaments.

"coaching at this stage concentrates on building consistancy and you will learn how to pinpoint improvements in technique, expand on ball dynamics and lane play, and develop your players into tournament competitors by creating training plans.
