Essentials for Schools

jr jack attack bowls logoBowls Australia has launched an exciting new junior participation product called Jr. Jack Attack, aimed at bringing the sport of bowls to kids around the nation. 

Jr. Jack Attack is designed to enable kids to participate in an engaging format which is both fun and inclusive. Importantly, it can be conducted on a range of surfaces, including greens, carpets, concrete, wooden floors and just about anything else that is flat, which removes the restrictions of requiring a bowling green to introduce new audiences to the sport.

Bowls is unique in it’s level of inclusivity. 

  • Bowls is a sport that does not disadvantage any participants tall or short, strong or not so strong, male or female
  • Provides an opportunity for every child to play and compete
  • Fits perfectly within the Sporting Schools initiative
  • Can be played before, during or after school; and 
  • Supports the Australian curriculum.   

PRIMARY SCHOOL PROGRAM

Jr. Jack Attack offers four different packages to suit the needs of schools to help students develop skills and confidence around bowls based skills in a fun environment.
