Brighton Secondary School offers an extensive range of extracurricular sporting activities throughout the year. Involvement in any sporting opportunity is the personal preference of the student, but we offer both competitive and social sport opportunities.
Brighton Secondary School participates in the Southern Zone Competition through School Sports SA. Zone Sport promotes participation, so no trial is required. Zone Sport is a great opportunity for students wanting to try a new sport, improve their skills, or play with friends.

Statewide (Knockout) Sport
Knockout sport is a competition that is organised through School Sport SA. 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 three age levels: Year 7/8, Year 9/10 and Year 11/12. These sports are generally played during school hours. Cost varies from $10-$30 per student.
