Knockout sport is a competition which is organised through Secondary School Sports SA (SSSSA). As the name implies, teams will be ‘knocked out’ of the draw after a loss. This process continues until a play off in a grand final.
Many of the sports are offered at 3 age levels; Year 8/9, Year 10 and year 11/12. These sports are generally played during school hours. Cost varies from $9 to $27.
