What is the SCHOOLS CHALLENGE CUP?

12 Regions throughout the state will be eligible to take part in the events at both Primary and Secondary levels. Each of these regions will be broken down into current school District areas where possible, however these may be changed slightly to ensure we are able to cater to as many schools as possible and can provide enough referees and additional resources that may be required to run successful events.
