Durban Boys High School, KwaZulu-Natal, was one of the schools that competed in the Coca-Cola 30 Minute Heroes Challenge, a competition introduced to schools participating in the Coca-Cola T20 schools Cricket Challenge and aimed at getting learners to participate in physical activity.

The concept encourages as many learners as possible to complete a five drill circuit within a 30 minute period. The scores will only be made public once all schools have completed their challenge.  The school that completes the most circuits in the allotted time frame stands a chance to win a prize of an outdoor gym to the value of two hundred thousand rand which will be installed at the winning school.

The five drills in the Coca-Cola 30 Minute Heroes Challenge include:

  1. Shuttle runs between 6 beacons, moving a cricket ball from one beacon to the next.
  2. Target Throwing at a set of wickets.
  3.  Skipping with a skipping rope.
  4. Catching balls off a rebound board.
