SAPSASA organises and conducts various competitions for primary school students throughout the school year. There are 3 levels of SAPSASA teams/sports: knockout (school based), district and state. Team sports are generally for Year 6/7 students and individual sports for students 10-13 years of age. SAPSASA information will be published on the school blog, daily student notices & SAPSASA notice board.
Schools can choose to nominate teams in school based knockout competitions in cricket, football, netball, soccer, hockey, tennis, softball and baseball. Parent support for coaching and transport is required for teams to be nominated. At Craigburn preference is given to Year 7 students playing the particular knockout team sport.
