Since 1981, SACPSSA has hosted Netball Carnivals which are available to all member schools, both metropolitan and country.

The Carnivals are held over four days in July, catering for over 60 schools and over 400 teams. In 2019, three out of the four days will cater for participation by those schools in the Year 3 – Year 6 age groups. A fourth day will cater for those schools who still have a Year 7 enrolment in 2019.

The carnivals are held at Priceline Stadium, where students can enjoy SA’s best outdoor netball facilities. SACPSSA Netball Carnivals traditionally encourage participation rather than competition.
