YOU CAN BE A BETTER CROQUET PLAYER
Whether you play Golf Croquet or Association Croquet, no matter what your ability or skill level, there are coaching courses available to suit you.
The north west Federation of Croquet Clubs offers a unique coaching service called THE FLYING CIRCUS to any club who requests coaching. All coaching is free, however, the provision of refreshments to our coaches is always appreciated. We provide coaching expertise from across the region and sometimes from further afield, they zoom into your club and provide high quality tuition, leaving behind a rich repertoire of new skills – our Flying Circus of coaches can deliver coaching at all levels covering Golf or Association Croquet, from Beginners to Advanced and could be a bespoke course or a formal Bronze, Silver or Gold course as written by the CA. The Federation Coaching Officer will arrange the coaches for you and may even suggest a combined event involving players from other clubs. Club secretaries should discuss their club coaching requests with the Federation Coaching Officer, not only do you get a great opportunity to improve your play but it is free of charge and designed to your requirements!
Perhaps, you just require a short coaching period of one evening to address a specific croquet technique, then a CROQUET POD could be your answer. This concept was developed by the Croquet Association and aimed initially at A or B Class players – the details are announced on the CA Website (www.croquet.org) and members invited to book their place on-line. The Federation Coaching Officer has organised several Pods in the north west and is happy to accept individual players – rather than go on-line, just contact him! Again they are FREE courses!
Prefer a more intensive coaching course? Why not pay a visit to the NORTHERN CROQUET ACADEMY, it is based in York and offers high quality weekend courses. You can see their current programme and prices on-line, why not enjoy a weekend in the beautiful city of York and improve your Croquet as well!
So there we are, what more would you expect your Federation to provide?
What is stopping you?
Why not participate and improve your play and enjoyment of Croquet!
The Federation Website will announce any Coaching Opportunities as they are announced.
