Our school participates in a wide range of SAPSASA events
throughout the year. As part of my P.E. role I train and select
students to represent the school at these events. SAPSASA
is aimed mainly at Year 6 and 7 students but there will be
opportunities for Year 4 and 5 students to participate in some
sports. The events we anticipate competing in this year are:
o Cross Country (students born 2006, 2005, 2004,
2003. Wednesday 18th May at Kent Reserve)
o Athletics (students born 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003.

o Basketball (Year 6/7’s only. Girls Wednesday 27th

o Cricket (Year 6/7’s. Encounter Bay Carnival

When information on these events is available I will put
notices in the Newsletter and send notes home with the
students who are interested.
There also will be opportunities for students to try out for the
Southern District Association teams in various sports and
also for State teams. Again, when this information becomes
available to me I will inform all eligible via the newsletter and
I also will be putting up SAPSASA photo displays on the gym
windows so feel free to come and have a look after events at
some of the photos taken.
SAPSASA State Teams Selections
Interested students wanting to trial for State teams need to
refer to: www.decd.sa.gov.au/sport/pages/sapsasa
for further information. If you wish to trial for a team, an online
nomination must be completed and submitted by the due
date for each sport. Information for each sport is available by
clicking on List of Sports, then the sport you are interested in
nominating for. (A separate nomination form is required for
each sport). It is up to the student and their parent/caregiver
to enrol, pay for and attend these try outs. See me at school
if you need more information re this process.
