Soccer Challenge Contest Levels

Council level- Each contestant receives three practice kicks followed by 15 consecutive kicks from the 12-yard penalty line. In the event a tie breaker is necessary, it should be conducted as follows: each contestant will have the opportunity to take 3 kicks from apposition three yards behind the penalty kick line, until a winner emerges.

District level- The district level of the contest occurs ONLY if more than one council in the district participates in the Soccer Challenge. Check with your district deputy to see if this is the case in your area. The winner in this level will compete in either the regional or state competition. Check with your youth director regarding this.
