Primary School Balance Bike Programme

Published: September 10, 2022

This programme aims to develop and improve the physical literacy of young children through the use of balance bikes. It is appropriate for children in pre-school, junior infants, and senior infant’s classes. The school will have the use of 15 bikes and 15 helmets for 3 weeks

We have also created eight progressive online videos for teachers to assist them to teach striding, gliding and turning.

Cost: The cost of the programme is €50.
Logistics: The school will be responsible for collecting balance bikes either to and from WSP office or from school to school. Once applications are received and reviewed, WSP will give schools a date and collection point for bikes. Links to online teacher training resources will be emailed to the school.
