Sport aerobics is one of the fastest growing sports in Australian schools.  It is an inclusive sport that combines elements of aerobics, dance and fitness into a fun fitness routine. It is suitable for boys and girls of all ages and abilities, and thrives on bringing school students together with their peers to participate in an activity that is both active and exciting! It also requires little-to-no equipment or facilities. FISAF Australia is the national body responsible for the for the development, promotion, and regulation of the sport aerobics competition in Australia.  The FISAF School Stream has been designed exclusively for school students to enable them to participate in the sport in a simplified way. It also provides students with an opportunity to be involved in the FISAF competitions by competing amongst their peers. This year FISAF Australia have donated two packs to the HPE Week prize pool, one for primary and one for secondary levels. FISAF's pre-choreographed sport aerobics packages enable schools to easily deliver a sport aerobics program to students.  The packages include age-appropriate routines via step-by-step video and written instruction, as well as professionally-mixed music for each routine, making it possible for anyone in the school community to use them to teach students aerobics.

 

Speedminton’s unique format evolved from a desire to play shuttle sports outdoors. It engaged social distancing by design, well before this term became a way of life. Whilst official Speedminton match courts are 12 metres apart, shifting racket sport learning to the school oval lifted constraints from students developing the fundamental striking movement. Speedminton are donating two fantastic prize packs to two of this year's HPE Week participants.
Students have the space and time to learn how to hit and to swing a racket with effect, at their own pace. Eliminating the fear of error or point loss, instils a freedom of movement. Spreading from a court to open spaces invites imaginative game creation and skill challenges, for both individuals and groups. It is particularly effective with junior students, where the mechanics of setting up drills becomes simpler, safer and achieves high levels of participation. Combined with the user-friendly nature of the equipment, this free-style play has produced outstanding racket sport outcomes in over 3500 Australian schools. Speedminton delivers a safe, compliant and easily supervised racket sport activity, with games and drills for all age, skill and enthusiasm levels. Contact Geoff Bannister for more information and a special ACHPER HPE WEEK Speedminton Ten Racket Intro Offer.

   

Tenpin Bowling Association of QLD has a variety of opportunities for schools and school students to get involved in Tenpin Bowling. The opportunities have been designed to link together to provide a logical pathway for students to learn the sport of Tenpin bowling. Students and teachers absolutely love using the equipment, and the Roll ‘n Strike program provides the perfect opportunity to teach skills that students want to learn! Tenpin are donating a prize pack to HPE Week that includes pins, ball, a carry bag and teacher's manual and lesson plans.
Tenpin activity also includes access to our new digital competition to schools called the Interschool Challenge!  After learning to bowl at school they take their skills to the lanes at the local centre and record their scores against many other kids from a variety of different schools all across QLD and win cool prizes along the way – casual bowlers welcome no experience necessary! The Tenpin Bowling Roll ‘n Strike equipment and program is available to Queensland primary schools free of charge through Tenpins State office, TBAQ.  To receive more information on the Roll ‘n Strike and the Interschool Challenge please visit our website (http://www.tbaq.org.au/schools/) and click on the schools tab to find out more information on how you can include your school with the most inclusive sport today!
