Youth Lawn Bowling In BC
A pathway to success is to continue to develop younger Lawn Bowlers in British Columbia through Junior Bowls. New programs that involve skill development, social games with Provincial Championships helps meet their competitive needs and allows for a successful long-term involvement in the Sport of Lawn Bowls. This in turn delivers strength to the sport and ensures its viability for many years to come.
Some of the major objectives of the developing Junior & Under 25 Lawn Bowls programs is
to provide a fun, safe and rewarding Lawn Bowling experience for younger participants. Clubs which provide a safe environment for members and visitors will create a more positive community image of the club.
