Often I search you tube/ the internet to find bowls videos. Often I find games or clips of games which are fun to watch, especially the high caliber players on carpet or fast greens.
Recently I came across a coaching series on You Tube created by the High Performance squad called "The Coaches Den". I figured that the information would be great to watch and possibly use in my own coaching if it was provided by those in charge of Australia's National team.
Take a look for yourself an let me know with a response what you think of the videos and information shown in them. I've been highly disappointed. What do you think should be shown in these types of videos? I would love to have something to direct new bowlers to to watch and gain information on how to play if they can't be with a coach or mentor on a regular basis.

For example: Video 2 on effective use of the mat -- I thought it would be some great tips on using the mat for delivery or strategy, but it gave virtually no useful information. for a 2:00 video, 1:00 was the introduction to the coaching series, 45 seconds talking about foot placement and then the remaining seconds show one delivery of a bowl.
