This event is part of the School Games programme and is open to all Large Schools within the partnership.
*The definition of a Large School, based on School Games criteria is any school that has more than 120 students in KS2 and more than 30 pupils in Year 6.
If you are a Small School please book onto the Small School event.
- 12 players on the squad with a minimum of 4 girls and 4 boys on the squad. (How the team fills the rest of the squad is up to each individual team).
- 8 a-side, with at least 2 boys and 2 girls playing at any given time
- To score, a player must run over the try line they are scoring towards and put the ball down on the ground
- If a player gets tagged they must pass the ball backwards to a team mate
- When a player tags someone they must give the tag back after shouting TAG!!!
- Once tagged, a player is allowed 1 step to try and score or has to pass if he can’t score
- Once tagged, a player is allowed 3 steps before they have to pass
- Players must have two hands on the ball
- When a player is tagged everyone must stand on their side of the ball, or they are offside and a penalty is conceded, and a free pass is given to the non-offending team
- If the game ever needs to be restarted it is done with a free pass
- Most of all we would like all the children to have FUN at this competition.
