It can be delivered both in your school and in a centre, utilising portable lanes and lightweight rubber bowling balls; making it ideal for primary school children aged from 7 to 12 years old. The program has been designed to assist both coaches and teachers to conduct quality sessions easily, ensuring ongoing participation, skill development, achievement and learning.

The sport of tenpin bowling provides physical and mental health benefits through exercise and social interaction. It is a skill based sport that promotes ongoing progression opportunities, with a focus on general fitness, movement and targeting skills, whilst developing motor skills such as coordination and balance. The sport is inclusive, non-contact, non-gender specific and sun smart. It can be played by anyone of any age, from individuals, through to small and large groups.

Tenpin Bowling Australia values the role of teachers not just in the classroom but in the school yard as well. Their enthusiasm for improving children’s lives is often understated. Society places its trust and confidence in teachers who as educators, have one of the most important roles for our children, outside of parents and carers.

Coaches are also a wonderful influence on children throughout their formative years. Coaches are the people who deliver the skills with fun and enjoyment.
