Australia's Only National Junior Tenpin Bowling program
Bowl Patrol is Australia’s only NATIONAL JUNIOR TENPIN BOWLING program designed specifically for primary school children.
It is an 8 week program that starts the second week of each term.
It teaches the fundamental skills of the sport and improves co-ordination and balance.
Bowl Patrol is FAST, FUN and ACTIVE and promotes skill development, a sense of achievement, socialisation and teamwork.
Bowl Patrol can be utilised in the special and/or primary school environment. It may be selected by schools as part of the Australian Sports Commission's Sporting Schools program - where the full costs for the program are paid for via the Sporting Schools grant.
The program has also recently been recognised by Special Olympics Australia among others.
