Sideline Challenge

The McDonalds Sideline Challenge is an event designed for primary schools to attend.

This is a fun filled day where primary schools nominate teams of 10 students to participate.

The students at the Sideline Challenge always have a fun day. The objective of the day is for all kids to participate. What makes the sideline challenge such a success over a long period of time is that every child touches the ball. No one is left out, which can happen in other team sports.

When the ball is taken in defence, the defensive team must throw the ball to the sideline so the other team members standing on the sideline all touch the ball as it moves from defence to offence. The ball is then thrown into the forward half of the court to try to score. Therefore the kids not on the court still have a role to play in the team.
