Junior Coaching – Wanborough

Following our very successful Open Day in May, the club invited Wanborough Primary School to send some children down to the club for five, weekly coaching sessions.  A senior coach, Carl Fernandes kindly agreed to run the sessions, helped by two other qualified coaches enlisted by him together with one our own coaches and 3 members.

Between four and six children attended every session and they really enjoyed themselves and made good progress.  Our new brightly coloured junior bowls were a great hit and at the final session, Carl brought some target activities for which the children could gain points as they tried each one.  The winner was presented with a small trophy with the runners-up all receiving prizes.

The headmaster was very pleased with the sessions and has asked if we can run them again next season.  We certainly hope to be able to do this.
