Currently, Burnside Primary School leads the total points leaderboard and Grow 73 leads the average points leaderboard. The top teams on each leaderboard stand to win hundreds of pounds in vouchers for sports equipment or books, plus Kilbryde Hospice could earn a donation of £500 if players meet an active travel mileage target.
