Roll ‘n Strike In-School Program

The Tenpin Bowling Roll ‘n Strike equipment and program is available to Queensland primary schools free of charge through TBAQ.  Students absolutely love using the kits, and the Roll ‘n Strike program provides the perfect opportunity to teach skills that the kids want to learn! This program has been developed to teach children the sport of Tenpin Bowling whilst ensuring they have fun while learning at the same time. The lessons are designed so that children are on task at all times, and everyone has a role to play!

From a teacher’s point of view more than 20 lesson plans have already been created and helpful videos to assist with understanding the program and what you can achieve. All lessons with ACARA syllabus outcome links included. Tenpin Bowling is a great alternative to other sports and can be played in any weather as a sun safe fun program. Tenpin can be a nice alternative with the hot summer months quickly approaching or a great activity to use when the storms suddenly hit!

The associated Roll N Strike equipment is completely FREE to schools, what the school will receive is:

  • 5 x Carpet Lanes
  • 5 x Sets of Plastic Pins
  • 5 x Multi-grip Rubber Balls
  • Teachers manual & Lesson Plans

This visit can be funded through Sporting Schools grants, Sporting Schools also covers the cost of transportation including buses! It is a great way to expose your students to the sport of Tenpin Bowling and put into practice what they have learned during the in-school program, further reinforced by a qualified coach at the local bowling centre.

An alternative is that kits may be booked directly from the TBAQ office. If shipping is required, this is at the expense of the school. – Remember Tenpin resources are also available through Sporting Schools funding please contact us to assist you with these forms.
