Golf Croquet Coaching

Your local club probably offers coaching for beginners, and possibly more.

The CA runs courses for both beginners and improvers. The beginners' course covers the basic shots, the rules and commonly used tactics. The improvers' course extends the repertoire to more advanced shots and tactics, together with the various possible faults and the appropriate use of extra strokes in handicap games.

Coaching Resources

Awards

The CA provides a number of performance merit awards, which recognise the achievement of certain standards:

The recipients of the awards can be seen on the relevant history page: Most Improved Players.

Each year the CA recognises one coach who has, in the opinion of the coaching committee, provided outstanding service to croquet. This award is called 'Coach of the Year'. Please pass nominations to the chairman of the CA Coaching Committee. Previous winners can be seen in the history section Coach of the Year.

Becoming a Coach

The CA runs coach training courses (CTC) and has a qualification system for those wishing to become coaches. Please refer to the fixtures book section Becoming a Coach. Key to the qualification scheme is our network of Examining Coaches.

Special Opportunity for Juniors

CA Junior Members can access the wide-ranging CA Mentoring Scheme to benefit from the experience of leading players.

The CA Bursary Scheme supports aspiring international players to go to the right tournaments, etc.

Development Squad for Players with International Potential

Improving players with the potential to reach an international standard may be interested in the International Player Development Squad.

Clubs should nominate their fast-improving players with real potential by the end of November each year. Apps Bowl, Steel Bowl and Spiers Trophy nominees are considered automatically. Nominations should be sent to the Chairman of GC Selectors.

For more information see the Golf Croquet International Performance Development Strategy.
