Purpose of event - A competitive sports event - Schools should select students that are prepared to compete with other schools and progress through the County competitive pathway.

Team Criteria
Mixed Team - Yr 5/6
Each team has 6 players on the court at the start of a game. A squad can consist of 10 players, 3 of which must be girls. There must be a minimum of 2 girls playing at all times.

A match can be 1, 3, 5 or 7 games.
Games last 2 minutes.
3 balls in the Dead Zone at the start of a game.
A game starts when signaled by the referee.

At a game’s start 3 players from each team run to gain
possession of the balls. Balls must be taken or passed to
the back of the court before the first attempts are made.

The LEADING team, in the game, has 5 seconds to throw
balls at their opponents, when it has possession of more
than TWO balls. Throws MUST be ‘Valid Attempts’. Leading
teams can retain possession of ONE ball.

When you catch a throw from an opposing player, they are
out and one of your players comes back in. Players are
allowed to fumble a ball while catching; but they must retain
possession at the end of the catching action, while remaining on
pitch, and without ball touching any other player or any other
ball, object or surface.

Catches bring players who are out back into the game in
rotation – FOFI (first out – first in).

You can use a ball in your possession to block a thrown
ball, but you are OUT if the ball is knocked from your hands
when you try to block the incoming ball.

You win a game by putting out all the opposing team, or by
having more players left on court at the end of the game.

Substitutions are allowed between the 2-minute games.

No taunting opponents and NO FIGHTING.

You are out –
When a ball hits you directly, which is thrown by an opponent
(clothing counts as part of a player’s body);
When an opposing player catches your throw;

When you touch a boundary line or touch the floor/wall/barrier
over a boundary line or on the opponent’s side of the court;
