Sport Development
During the latter half of 2013, it was agreed we should totally revamp the elite system within the BTBA to make it inclusive to all, I know elite and inclusive are not compatible as concepts, but as Director of Sport Development, Terry Searle has made it his task to ensure everyone has access to opportunities, be that quality coaching at all levels, tournaments and events that people will want to enter, and ensure all BTBA members have a chance to be all best they can be.

Head Coaches appointed as BTBA prepare for Coach 14

The final pieces of the Team England jigsaw are coming together with the appointment of the Head Coaches across each age group.

Head of Coaching Mark Heathorn expressed how pleased he was with the level of interest shown, “I was delighted by the quality and quantity of applicants we had for the Head Coach positions and although we had to make some tough decisions around selection, I feel that we are able to offer most people the opportunity to be involved in Team England coaching somewhere down the line”. He went onto explain that he would be looking to establish a pool of assistant coaches who would be able to support the coaching programme and participate at international tournaments if required.
