Bowls WA’s targeted Winning Drive program brings a structured approach to club development for ;awn bowling clubs in Western Australia and includes enhanced support to the country regions.
Winning Drive is a program that aims to help clubs improve their management and governance by educating those in leadership positions on the best practice operations for their club.
Bowls WA has received a State Government Every Club Grant to help fund the project, as well as partnering with Clubs WA, the Western Australian Sports Federation’s Top Club program, the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and AFL Sports Ready along with the support of Bowls Australia, to deliver the program.
The program provides for regionally delivered training courses throughout the year during times that suit the region and they aim to aid in the development of clubs by providing training and consultation to club leaders and officials.
Clubs can become Winning Drive certified by completing a strategic plan or Top Club session, updating of constitution and policies, attending training workshops and scheduling an annual meeting with their Regional Bowls Manager.
The program is led by Bowls WA’s Club Development Coordinator who assists our Operations Manager and Regional Bowls Managers to deliver this program.
Bowls WA hopes to see a large uptake from clubs throughout Western Australia.
