Interstate selection information including trial details and the nomination process is available on each specific sports page from the sports and competitions search 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.
Nominations will only be accepted from schools affiliated with Sapsasa – Primary School Sport or Secondary School Sport SA.
- 12 years and under students nominate with Sapsasa – Primary School Sport.
- 13 years and older students nominate with Secondary School Sport SA.
- 13 year old students in affiliated primary schools are eligible for trials in Secondary School Sport SA state teams.
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.
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 Sapsasa team members travel to the championship as a team. Sapsasa parents who go with their children must provide their own accommodation when at the championship.
- All Secondary School Sport SA team members will travel and stay together as a team. Exemptions are possible when championships are hosted in Adelaide.
