Kahibah Junior Bowls Development Team
Our Junior Bowls Program encourages boys and girls 10 years & over, to be coached & mentored on a weekly basis to develop their skill sets & tactics to prepare themselves for the transition to competition bowls. We currently have 3 junior members, Brady Anderson, Matthew & Thomas Webster who are playing alongside our men in the NDBA Saturday Pennant Competition Trial Matches.
It’s also a great sport to get involved in and Kahibah Sports Club is the place to be to meet new people and begin new friendships.
Team Sessions are held on Tuesdays at 4:30pm.
JUNIOR JACK ATTACK PROGRAM
SPORTING SCHOOLS AND BOWLS AUSTRALIA PLAY JR. JACK ATTACK
Bowls is an emerging sport in schools, and 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. This eliminates the restrictions of requiring a bowling green to introduce new audiences to the sport.
Sporting Schools is a $100 million Australian Government initiative being run by the Australian Sports Commission. The aim of the program is to give thousands of Australian school access to a range of sports. With 32 sporting organisations in total, the programme provides funding for schools to select the sport they wish to run. Any school can select Bowls Australia’s Junior Jack Attack program and they will use the Jr Jack Attack kit to deliver four or more sessions in the school.
The Sporting Schools Programme is designed to run in the school’s before, after or during school hours. As each school has different requirements, Bowls Australia has created different options to ensure that each school can participate in the Jr Jack Attack Programme. Schools c
an choose to have a coach attend the school, a teacher run the programme or the school attend a local bowls club.
