New High Performance Representative Structure
31 May 2022
Applications open for High Performance Representative Team Officials

A key strategic goal for Auckland Bowls is to be the number one performing centre in New Zealand. While we are yet to achieve this goal, we believe the Auckland region has all the elements to become ‘number one.’

During a recent review of our high-performance structure, we identified the need to make some fundamental changes.  We worked through our past performances, consulted with bowlers for feedback, we researched how other sporting bodies structure their activities for representative teams.

The review identified Auckland Bowls needs to become more progressive if we want to improve and achieve our goal.  We determined a high-performance team needs to work as a cohesive unit and trust one another – therefore we will be initiating the following:

  • develop more collaboration, coordination and cohesion across the entire squads
  • have a positive team with a sense of pride and ownership – by developing and building a great team culture it will enable success, which in turn, will attract more talent
  • introduce a transparent and structured approach to our player selections
  • introduce a selection process with clear and concise criteria – identify key components and apply some subjective elements to recognise diverse, passionate and committed team members

Our high-performance activities will include specific coaching, skill-set training and player development programmes.  Player performance can then be measured and monitored, the results analysed and used as part of the player selection process.

We attach a copy of our new high-performance structure and note that we are seeking applications for the following roles:
