Athlete Development

4 Steps to Success in Lawn Bowls

Improvement of your own performance requires you to understand what the champions deliver in competitive game performance in each of the 4 Steps and set that level as at least a minimum goal.4stepslogo

The 4 Steps are:

1. Strategic Competence
2. Technical Excellence
3. Emotional and Mental Discipline
4. Physical Fitness

Each Step has its own volume and seminars will be run throughout the year.

Goal orientation of your competitive, mental, physical and technical future is essential to achieve improvement in this program. You need to measure your own levels of performance first before you dash off in pursuit. There will be a gap between the Champions performance and your own. This is the improvement you need to achieve. You then need to set your goals for short term, medium term and long term achievement.

* Note: The Pacific Indoor Bowls Club will be hosting a 4 Steps Clinic Saturday April 15th that seminar will cost $50 instead of the usual $40.
