2016 ONTARIO CHAMPIONSHIPS

The Ontario Lawn Bowls Association is looking for host clubs for the 2016 Championships. We are looking for clubs who would like to host a Regional Championship (event leads to the Canadian Championships) and/or a Provincial Championship (developmental event that does not lead to the Canadian Championships). Regional Championships require 1 green only. We require a host club in the West (District 1-8) and in the East (District 9-16) for each Regional Championship. Provincial Championships require 2 greens, except Mixed Fours, which requires 1 green. Final Decisions are contingent on new format approval at the 2015 Fall Annual General Meeting.

Regional Fours (16 Teams, One Green) West Host & East Host
Regional Triples (16 Teams, One Green) West Host & East Host
Regional Pairs (16 Teams, One Green) West Host & East Host

2016 Coaching Clinics & Player Development

To all OLBA Clubs:

In 2015, OLBA was able to hold 5 Club Coaches Clinics, 2 Introductory Competitive Coach Clinics and 1 Player Development One Day Camp. The result was very positive, and we now are all benefitting from over 50 new Club Coaches, as well as 25 new Introductory Competitive Coaches throughout the province. There is a chance that the Developing Coaches Clinic Course may be ready sometime in 2016 to present as well. Due to the extremely busy OLBA Tournament Schedule, we found that the best time to hold the Coaches Clinics were in the first three weeks of May.

The one Player Development Camp held in Milton was well received, and the general feeling is that we should hold more of these sort of Player Development Camps for those who wish to attend them. As a side note, both the Silver and Gold Medal skips from our 2015 Provincial Ladies Fours attended this camp! These camps are also more likely to be well attended if we try and host them before or after the busiest times in our competition season.

We are now seeking clubs who are willing to host the 2016 Coaches Clinics, as well as clubs who are interested to hosting a 2016 Player Development Camp. If your club would like to host any of these Clinics or Camps, please let us know which type of clinic or camp you are interested in, and when the best dates would be for you.

Further to this, we are open to suggestions as to what type of Player Development Camp you feel would benefit our members the most. If you have any comments or questions, we will attempt to answer them to the best of our ability.

Thank you one and all,
Dave Burrows
