National Coaching Director
Alan Croft  Apr 22, 2014, 03:07:28 PM

Congratulations Paul Thomerson on your appointment to the position of National Coaching Director. Paul, a level 2 coach and examiner, has a wealth of experience in coaching both juniors and seniors and will be a great asset in the future of billiards & snooker within Australia. Bob Turpin from Queensland, has accepted the role of National Junior Development Officer. Bob has a great record working with juniors and will now assist Paul in the growth of our juniors within Australia.

The juniors are a very important part of our future and without these future champions there is little future for our game.

Both Paul and Bob will be present at the National Junior Academy at Albury in July this year.
