National Coaching Advisory Group and Women in Bowls Working Party

by Bowls Australia

At the recent scheduled Bowls Australia (BA) Board meeting in August, it was agreed to re-establish the National Coaching Advisory Group (NOAG) and to establish a Women in Bowls Working Party.

The Women in Bowls Working Party has been formed in response to the declining participation rates of women, to identify ways to retain existing members and to encourage more women into the sport.
