The 2018 Coaching Conference ‘Making a Positive Difference’ was
filled before Christmas! We are compiling a waiting list should people still wish to put their names down. Speakers include Nigel Redman (Head of Performance Team Development at British Swimming),
Giselle Mathers (Director of Rugby for Wasps RFC), Emma Atkins (Director of Coaching at UK Coaching), David Turner (GB and England Javelin coach and UK Coaching staff), Graeme Foreman (International
Tennis coach, author and director of Performance Mind Academy). They will be presenting on the current coaching landscape, coaching young people and sport psychology.
15th November BOWLS
Following the decision passed unanimously at the Annual General Meetings of both the SCBA and SCWBA the unified County
Organisation will be renamed 'Bowls Surrey'. There will be one Constitution that will cover the administration of the Organisation. There will be no change to the way
in which each Association operates, they will continue as SCBA and SCWBA and carry out their day to day activities such as competitions etc. as they do at
present. The one major change is that there will be only one AGM in November 2018. A review of the Rules and Regulations is being carried out at present and in the meantime the Rules and Regulations
from the previous Constitutions should be used.
