Interstate nomination process

Interstate selection information including trial details and the nomination process is available on each specific sports page from the sports and competitions page. The nomination process must be completed before the sport’s first selection trial or by the date shown on the specific sports page.

Not all sports have an online nomination – make sure that you follow the correct process.

Who can nominate

Nominations will only be accepted from schools affiliated with School Sport SA.

Selection and trials

Nominees should possess well-above average ability and experience. Sports coordinators should give interested students the necessary information and talk about the strict selection requirements. Any selection in a team must have the principal's endorsement.

Nominations for state trials mean that you agree to attend the trials.

Students will be expected to attend trials in Adelaide at their own expense. Attendance for country students can be negotiated.

Attendance and travel

Students selected must pay for travel to attend required practices, airfares, accommodation, transport, food, uniforms and event levies.

There are some requirements when travelling in a team:

  • All state team members aged 12 years and under travel to the championship as a team. Parents who go with their children must provide their own accommodation when at the championship.
  • All state team members aged 13 years and older will travel and stay together as a team. Exemptions are possible when championships are hosted in Adelaide.
