Directing a Visually Impaired Bowler
(A Technical Assistant)
Visually Impaired Bowls England exists to promote the sport of Lawn Bowls for people who have a visual impairment, from complete novices to players of international standard.
We organize competitions at regional and national level and send teams to represent England in UK ‘Home’ Internationals, ‘Friendly’ Internationals and International Blind Bowls Association World Championships
Whatever your age, gender, degree of sight loss or other additional disability, we can help you enjoy the wonderfully inclusive sport of Lawn Bowls.
The Club VI Director course gives people the knowledge and skills required to help and assist a visually impaired bowler at the club level. The course covers classifications, typical ailments, how to guide a bowler, what aids can be used. The practical element introduces the clock system, how and where to guide someone, the aids used and what it feels like to be a VI bowler.
The total cost will be made up of a course fee and insurance payment.
