2021 Athlete Development Squad
Bowls AB, through an application and selection process, will identify players across the province in the Learn and Train to Compete development stages to make up the 2021 Development Team if we do get back to playing this season. New application forms will be made available early in February. The AB Head Coach and the Northern and Southern appointed Selectors will announce the team early in April.

The squad for 2021 is:
When we resume our sport, following the selection of the full development squad players, a team will be selected to represent AB in the 3nd annual AB BC Test Match to be held at a club in BC, if the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted enough to allow travel and gatherings. Coaches and/or a team manager and two senior players will accompany the team.
If a trip to BC is out for this year then the plans are to schedule an in-province tournament for the squad members to give them further competitive experience.
The first ‘Development Camp’ for the team is set for May 22 at the Commonwealth Club in Edmonton.
