The Bowl Patrol program was designed with the primary-school aged participant in mind. Sessions are consistent in keeping with development milestones and considering all aspect essential to sport; from physical to social and in between!
Here is the Program Overview which outlines what happens each week. We have a theme and focus each session that teaches participants more than just bowling, we discover the pin setting machines, look inside the pin, learn how to score and so much more.
Here's how your Patrollers will progress (hopefully, and eventually) through each session receiving a coloured wristband when they achieve the required score;
- Score 30 on 9 metre carpet = white wrist band
- Score 30 on 6 metre carpet = yellow
- Score 30 on 3 metre carpet = orange
- Score 30 on full lanes = green
- Score 60 on full lanes = blue
- Score 80 on full lanes = black
- Personal Best
- Vs Parents/Friends
We're also proud to present resources designed to include and enhance the experience of a more sensitive participant. Resources like a word board, schedule, social story and low-sensory sessions ensure every Bowl Patrol experience is a positive one.
We're also partnered with world-champion bowler Jason Belmonte, as our program ambassador, to teach our Patrollers how to coach 2-handed delivery.
