On behalf of Bowls Canada Boulingrin, we would like to inform you of some changes happening within the coaching program. As you may know, the NCCP programming for Lawn Bowls will no longer include Levels 1, 2 or 3. These have been replaced with Club Coach, Competition Coach and Performance Coach. If you are a coach with Level 1, 2, or 3 Theory, Technical, or Practical components, you will be given credit for the equivalent program in Club Coach, Competition Coach or Performance Coach Streams. These will be identified as “Transferred” on your transcript. Your Levels-NCCP credentials are still valid and recognized in the sport community. They will not expire or be removed from your transcript. On December 7th, 2016, bowls will undergo this transfer of qualifications in the CAC database “The Locker” and an email will be sent to each coach communicating the transfer.
For more information on the transfer of qualifications, please visit the Transfer of Qualifications FAQ page on the CAC website, found here. Should you have any further questions after having consulted the page, please do not hesitate to contact Bowls Canada or the CAC’s Coach and Partner Services team at 613.235.5000 or email@example.com.
Thank you for investing your time, energy, and passion into the National Coaching Certification Program!

From Bowls Canada:
Bowls Canada welcomes new Directors
Ottawa, Ontario| October 7th, 2016
Bowls Canada Boulingrin (BCB) welcomed new Directors to the Board on Sunday, September 25th at the organization’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).
David Calam, from Regina, SK was elected as the new Bowls Canada President. He brings with him extensive volunteer experience having served on a number of Boards including Bowls Saskatchewan. Calam has been involved in the sport of bowls for over 25 years as an athlete, coach, manager, developer of programs and has worked on a number of committees as well.
"I am honoured to have been appointed as the President of BCB and I look forward to working with our excellent volunteers, board and staff. Lawn bowls has given me a lot of opportunities, achievements and satisfaction in my life and I see this as one way I can give back to our sport”, stated Calam.
Incumbent board members Murray Pituley, from Regina, SK, was re-elected for the two-year Treasurer position and Alan Dean, from Aurora, ON, was re-elected for one of the two-year Director-at-Large positions.
Ian Howard of Oakville, ON, was elected to a two-year term as a Director-at-Large and Jennifer MacDonald of Calgary, AB was elected to fill the last Director-at-Large position.
Bowls Canada would like to recognize Ian Tyzzer, BCB past president, for his dedication and hard work towards the organization over the years. Tyzzer oversaw the transition from a Provincial Board to a skill-based policy board and the many other organizational changes resulting from the new federal Not-for-Profit Act. “It was such a privilege to be a part of this and oversee the change”, stated Tyzzer. “I would like to offer a sincere thanks to the BCB Board members and staff for all the support during my ten years on the board.”
Bowls Canada would also like to thank out-going Board member Tim Mason for his dedication and many contributions over years as a member of the BCB Board.

From Bowls Canada:
Canada looks for repeat victory at NAC
Vancouver, B.C. |...
Canada has a wide range of experience on this year’s North American Challenge (NAC) team as it looks to veteran bowlers for leadership in a repeat victory against the United States of America (U.S.A).
The experience varies from youth bowlers to world class international medalists. “I am excited about the opportunity to lead a group of young and talented women into this tournament against our friends from the United States,” said Winnipeg’s Shirley Fitzpatrick-Wong, 2002 Commonwealth Games silver medalist.
The 2016 NAC will take place at the Pacific Indoor Bowls Club (PIBC), located in Vancouver, British Columbia. Each country fields two teams in the biannual challenge match: a Jarvis team and a Folkins team. Each team consists of five male and five female athletes.
This is the first NAC played at an indoor location. Both nations wanted a faster paced playing surface to match the quicker outdoor greens of the Southern Hemisphere as the World Championships are set to be played in Christchurch, New Zealand Nov.29 to Dec. 11, 2016.
