Implementing a successful mentoring program
The Australian Womensport & Recreation Association (AWRA) has produced a free online resource for implementing a successful mentoring program. This web module is extremely comprehensive, covering all aspects of mentoring and includes a number of useful templates.
The main topics are:
* an introduction to the concept of mentoring
* mentoring background information and
* the various types of mentoring programs, including the set-up, matching the mentee and the mentor, gender issues, monitoring and evaluation
The web module covers the roles of the mentee and the mentor, the types of mentoring programs, such as the formal to the informal, e-mentoring and small group programs, when and why to implement mentoring and the benefits and possible costs.

Weekend Bowler - 2013 Ladies Team Challenge....it's on again
Weekend Bowler is aimed specifically at working women encouraging competition play on weekends when it is more suitable. This began in 2010 with the successful formation of the Ladies Team Challenge.
The 2013 Ladies Team Challenge competition will highlight our 4th year, and as we move into this new phase, we are fast becoming one of the most prestigious events on the Ladies Bowls calendar. Ladies Team Challenge is an all female competition, catering for all levels for those who wish to participate. Since the competition’s inaugural season in 2010, over 780 ladies have
participated since it’s inception, with player numbers and participating zones increasing each year.
Such is the popularity of Ladies Team Challenge competition that nominated teams include players from Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast , Toowoomba/ Downs & Caboolture zones. Teams can consist of players from any Club and nominate under a
‘team’ name. There is no limit to the number of teams who can register from any Club, as the competition is not Club based, and you will be competing under your ‘team’ name within your section, in your nominated zone, during the 5 weeks of fixture rounds.
Format is 4 x female players per team each week, split into 2 x teams of pairs (21 ends) , playing on rinks side by side, with aggregate scores over both ‘team’ pairs rinks to decide each match result.
The 2013 competition dates will be each Saturday morning 9.00am - 12.30pm from 12th Oct - 9th Nov , with the weekend of 16/17th Nov 2013 scheduled for Sectional Play-offs & Finals. I am pleased to announce that Mooloolaba Bowls Club will host the Finals for 2013. It is wonderful for our participating players that we can showcase Ladies Team Challenge regionally for the first time, at the Sunshine Coast. (undercover). Fixture round games will be played in area zones to reduce travel for
participants, wherever possible, dependent on team nominations from relevant zones. Clubs can nominate to be ‘host’ venues for the fixture rounds, with each host club retaining the green fee revenue generated, just our way of
‘giving back’ to the Clubs & their members who support this competition.
Pass on this information to your fellow Club members & fellow bowlers, who you feel may like to participate.
