School Sport SA secondary zones

The state is divided into 5 metropolitan secondary zones and 9 country secondary zones. Zones provide sports programs for their member schools. Some examples are:

  • interschool swimming carnival
  • interschool track and field carnival
  • lightning carnivals
  • weekly sport:
    • school vs school
    • venue-based
  • coaching clinics
  • special events.

View the list of all secondary schools and their zone.

Country schools

Schools that are located outside the metropolitan area don’t need to pay nomination fees for secondary knockout competitions. If available, funds are allocated to country schools that play in finals located in Adelaide to assist with travel costs.

Non-government and government schools are considered similarly.
