State carnivals, state championships and individual school championships – event details

The School Sport SA state carnivals and state championships are for district representative teams. The individual school championships are for school teams. This is a list of the different dates and venues for each sport. Information about the eligibility, selection and age requirements for the events is also available. To find out what district your school is in and the convenor contact details see the districts, zones and regions page.

The resumption of the School Sport SA Sapsasa state carnivals and championships will be a complex process considering risks associated with large gatherings and associated hygiene measures recommended. School Sport SA programs will need to be flexible to accommodate and respond to changes in advice from SA Health and the direction of the Department for Education. With this in mind we have agreed to the following principles:

  • Smaller team numbers with appropriate modified rules
  • Shorter length carnivals to reduce time out of school for students and staff
  • Carnivals to be separated into country and metro competitions
  • Timelines modified to enable team selection to occur.

For Football (Soccer) the Barker and Hills districts will be considered as part of the country competition.

For Hockey outer metro districts (Barker, Gawler, Hills and Southern Fleurieu) will be allocated to either the country or metro competitions depending on the number of teams enter. Convenors will be advised as soon as possible.

For Australian Football and Netball the Barker and Hills districts will be considered as part of the metro competition and Gawler and Southern Fleurieu will be considered as part of the country competitions.
