Tenpin bowling has been one of my pastimes now on and off since the mid 1980's.
Since 2004 I have been an instructor with Leuchars YBC and also part of the coaching team for the SAYBC Scotland Junior Squad.
I started with the Scotland Junior Squad in 2008 for the Triple Crown in Cardiff, Wales; 2009 was in Stirling, Scotland; 2010 was in Tolworth, England; 2011 was in Dublin, Ireland; and 2012 is in Cwmbran, Wales.
I have also been involved with the European Youth Championship team training sessions since 2009 and travelled with them for the first time this year to Aalborg, Denmark.
I have instructor and coaching qualifications from various governing bodies from across the world which are listed below.
On 5th September 2004 I passed the British Tenpin Bowling Association Phase I instructors course held in Sunderland.
On 1st July 2007 I passed the Scottish Tenpin Bowling Association Level II coaches course held in Stirling.
On 30th May 2009 I passed the US Bowling Congress Bronze Coaching seminar held in Nuneaton to become one of only 5 people, at that time, in Scotland with a USBC coaching qualification.
