Announcing the New Pathway Programme!

Announcing the New Pathway Programme! 🚨

The Irish Bowls Federation is excited to unveil our revamped Pathway Programme, designed to nurture and develop the next generation of elite bowlers in Ireland. 🏅

❓What is the Pathway Programme?

This innovative initiative replaces our previous Elite and Development Squads, offering a fluid system that allows athletes to enter and progress through the pathway at a stage appropriate to their current skill level and performance.

🧐 How does it work?

There are multiple entry points into the Pathway Programme, including scouting networks, nominations from selectors, and recommendations from our High Performance Coach. Athletes will be constantly monitored, with the opportunity to move up, down, or off the pathway based on their progress and development.

🪜 The Stages

Each stage of the pathway offers exposure to different levels of competition, from domestic pathway days and development events to test matches and major international events. As athletes progress, they’ll gain invaluable experience and mentorship to help them reach their full potential.


We’re committed to supporting our talented bowlers and ensuring they have access to the best training, resources, and opportunities to represent Ireland at the highest level. This Pathway Programme is the first step in that journey.

Follow us for updates, and let the journey begin! 💚☘️
