All Zone/District, Sydney East, NSWPSSA and NSWCHSSA activities will be 'temporarily ceased until further notice'.
This situation will be regularly reviewed and updates provided. We thank you for your understanding during this time.
The Department of Education now advises that due to COVID-19 and "social distancing strategy' programs for Terms 1 and 2 are now cancelled.
The health and well being of everyone involved is paramount and at the heart of this decision.
All Term 1 2020 Zone/District , Sydney East and NSW PSSA activities will now be cancelled and will not be rescheduled during 2020.
This situation will be regularly reviewed and updates provided related to activities in Terms 3 and 4.We thank you for your understanding during this time.
Opportunities for students with disabilities to get involved in sports are available at various levels throughout the school sport structure, from participation to elite. The participatory (or provisional) level does not require classification, however, if an athlete wishes to compete at a regional, state, national or international level, they will need to gain classification through the appropriate sporting organisation.

2020 PSSA Update
PSSA will continue in a modified format for schools who decide to participate in this non-competitive version of the season. Winter PSSA sports will be on offer for both Senior and Junior teams.
Modified rules will be established by Sport convenors where changes are required to be made due to venues, equipment or COVID considerations impacting on a sport being played using the ‘regular rules’.
Department-level considerations for COVID will be developed and attached to rule packs for all sports to ensure that all games/sports are compliant.
