Widen Your Curriculum

As teachers/coaches, we see the physical and mental benefits of roundnet (that’s why we started Zero Bounds!).
Why Roundnet in Schools?
Alternative Sports & Activities
Since the National Curriculum (NC) reform during the 2015/16 academic year, a shift can be seen in the range of sports and activities provided by Physical Education (PE) teachers. This change is seeing more teachers being open to “alternative” sports and activities, many of which are already adopting Roundnet.
Small Sided Games (SSG)
Roundnet is ideal for achieving all domains of learning (psychomotor, cognitive, social, emotional), which are a critical element of the NCPE. This is due to a “small-sided games/modified games” format, which provides greater engagement and opportunities for practice.
Action Plan Policy, 2019
“60minutes of physical activity is needed within the school day” as stated by the department of education and department of health. Roundnet has been found to show increased engagement with those disengaged students, as well as increased activity levels.
INCLUSIVE - VERY EASILY ADAPTABLE
See our 3 'On the Box' games as an example
The game is so easily adapted for all abilities. We have provided 3 versions of the game to get you started, but there is so much more you can do! Check out our affiliated coaching company Spike-it Coaching (link to website), to find out more.
JUNIOR RULES FOR COMPETITION
Rules for Inter-School Tournaments
As we are aiming to get junior age groups playing and competing, we have set “junior rules”, which can be found here (link to PDF of junior rules). These will be used at inter-school competitions, and for you to use as you feel appropriate with your age/ability groups.
