Coach’s Corner

Somehow, in the rush to get this morning’s first post of the season out, an important contribution from Club Coach, Brian Gum got left out.  Apologies Brian.


Thursday 14 September saw the completion of coaching for fourteen Years 11 and 12 Moonta School students after twelve weeks of intensive training.

The Year 12’s who were training under the Education Department’s SACE Course for Physical Education will complete an assessment of their sessions prior to the end of the year, conducted by the Department’s own internal assessment system.

I would particularly like to thank Beryl Williams who ably managed the sessions while Betty and I were on holidays.

I also would like to thank other members who assisted Beryl with this project, namely Sharon Cavanagh, Lyn Wildash, Pauline Jowett and also Rikki Bartlett, June Wilson and Sally Girardi.  The Club and the School appreciated your help –  many thanks to you all.

Also my thanks to Barry Fuss, Coralie Herrmann, Lyn Wildash and Beryl, who together, provided six sets of small size bowls to cope with the additional students attending.

Finally, our Club is in need of more volunteers with experience to participate in various coaching courses arranged by Bowls SA.  If your are interested in learning more about this most rewarding aspect of the game, please let me know.

Brian Gum
Club Coach
