Tenpin Bowling Australia is seeking registrations from Level 1 coaches or interested bowlers wishing to attend an upcoming Bronze coaching course to be held for the very first time – ONLINE!

Using Zoom software, aspiring coaches will be able to complete the theory (classroom) component of the USBC accredited Bronze coaching course. The new initiative replaces the previous two-day Face to Face course classroom requirement.

Participants will have the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills to develop their own coaching philosophy, fine tuning a bowler’s physical game, understand lane conditions and provide advice on ball selection.

Are you interested in becoming a Bronze Coach?

The USBC Bronze course is open to anyone who is a current TBA Level 1 Accredited Coach who wants to take their knowledge and skills to the next level.  Bronze is an Intermediate Level, aimed at coaching athletes from beginners up to 170 / 180 average.  It is also a prerequisite to becoming a Silver Level coach.  Bronze coaches have more coaching opportunities and receive a higher rate of pay than Level 1 Coaches (eg Sporting Schools).


Remote via ZOOM software


Bronze Level Coaching Course No. 1 


All participants are required to attend (live) all three sessions to complete the course. The three live sessions are scheduled for:

Tuesday 24th November7:30pm-10:30pm AEDTSession 1 of 3
Wednesday 25th November7:30pm-10:30pm AEDT Session 2 of 3
Thursday 26th November7:30pm-10:30pm AEDTSession 3 of 3



Final date for payment?

Monday 9th November 2020

How to Register

Please download the pdf registration form here and submit with your payment to secure your spot.

Your manual and course materials will only be sent once full registration and payment is received.

Further information on the TBA coaching framework and Coaching Calendar can be viewed here.

A Zoom invitation and password will be provided closer to the date when registration and payment is finalised.


  • Once participants attend all three sessions, they will be enrolled and issued instructions to complete the online USBC Exam Component.
  • Please note: This does not cover the “on the lane” coach evaluation task. All participants will be still required to attend a TBA Approved coaching session (2 – 3 hours) under observation of an authorised Silver Level Coach to finalise this task before finishing this course. Opportunities will be arranged by TBA in your own State once we are able to bowl more freely. No additional cost to participants.
  • Participants will not become Bronze Coaches until all requirements (as listed on the TBA website) are completed and submitted to TBA.

Not Yet a Level 1 Coach?

No problem – as the Level 1 course is all online, you will be able to register for this and get started, prior to attending the Bronze course.

Please register your interest today!
