Junior Lawn Bowling Tournament July 22, 2018
On July 22 Oakville hosted Burlington in a tournament, in spite of the rain.
Our Oakville team of Jack and Dekker won Gold in Pairs,
Our other Oakville team of Ben and Josef won Silver in Pairs.
Congratulations also go to Wesley of Oakville who won 4-3-2-1 against ten other opponents.
The tournament wouldn’t have been as successful as it was without the help of the parents and grandparents who stepped up to the plate and help supervise.
Also our thanks to the coaches who stood out in the rain all morning supervising the games; they are: Helen Byrnes, Cammy Cleveland, Bob Vaudry, Trish Hyland and Anne Wilkinson. Anne also kept everyone warm by keeping the coffee, juice and snacks flowing!
Back row: Wesley, Dara, Evelyn, Ella, Josef, Ben, Jack
Front row: Katie, Rebecca, Bridget, Dekker
Prizes were given to all the players at the end of the day. Here are some photos of the games today:
Junior Program Awards System
In this year’s Junior Program we have set up some competitions to develop bowling skills and will be teaching Juniors how to play Singles, Pairs, Triples, 4-3-2-1, and Aussie Pairs.
We have also developed an Award system which currently consists of four levels of bowling ability. These Award levels are described in the document links shown below:
Meet Ben, Dekker, Evelyn, and Rebecca
The first Juniors to complete Level 1 of our new Junior Awards Program
Junior Program – Look at us now!
As we progress through the Awards Program –
Each week the Junior bowlers are asked to wear their club t-shirt and flat-soled shoes. And to bring along a water bottle, hat, sunscreen and snack for the mid-session break. Please arrive no earlier than 9:50 as we need to set up.
Junior bowlers should meet in the club house and wait until instructed, to go on to the greens.
At the end of the day, after all the equipment has been put away, we will hand out freezies.
Looking forward to seeing all of you on Sunday, and remember, if parents would like to play, we have a few sheets available for you too.
Do you remember Day 1 ?
