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 approximately 500 teams. Three out of the four days allow both boys and girls to participate in the carnivals. Day 4 is traditionally a girls only carnival.

The carnivals are held at Priceline Stadium, where students can enjoy SA’s best indoor and outdoor netball facilities. Unlike most other carnivals, the carnival traditionally encourages participation rather than competition.
