Developing Multi-Skills in Sport Award
Bowls Scotland is delighted to announce a new coaching qualification that is available to bowls coaches.
This award has been developed by sportscotland to provide a professional development opportunity for coaches wishing to specialise in the area of children’s sport and physical activity.
