Public School Association (PSA)
Seven independent schools for boys, form the Public Schools’ Association of Western Australia (PSA). The PSA of Western Australia comprises the following schools: Aquinas College, Christ Church Grammar School, Guildford Grammar School, Hale School, Scotch College, Trinity College and Wesley College.
Membership to the PSA does not preclude a school from participating in sporting fixtures organised by other associations. Heads of schools retain the ultimate authority for all aspects of PSA competition, including rule changes, fixturing, or disciplinary sanctions involving students of PSA schools. PSA schools believe that the sporting life of a school is to be kept in balance with other facets of the school's life. View the PSA Code of Behaviour here.
PSA Fixtures are split into either summer (Term 4 and Term 1) or winter (Term 2 and Term 3). In addition to these fixtures, the PSA also conducts an interschool swimming carnival (Term 1) and an interschool athletics carnival (Term 3). Fixtures for CCGS teams are played on either Friday afternoon (Years 7, 8 or 9) or Saturday morning (Years 10, 11 or 12) at either home (ie. Mt Claremont playing fields, Lords Stadium, McGillvray Sports Complex) or away at the opposing schools venue. At a home fixture, 1st and 2nd teams and Year 9 teams play at home. Year 10, 7 and 8 teams play at the opposition schools venue. At an away fixture, 1st and 2nd teams and Year 9 teams play at the opposition schools venue. Year 10, 7 and 8 teams play at home.

Junior training sessions (Years 7 to 9) take part on Wednesday afternoons, with senior training sessions (Years 10 to 12) being held on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. First teams may also complete additional sessions throughout the week (ie. pool based recovery sessions, a running/conditioning sessions or specialist skills sessions). Basketball, Cricket, Golf (Years 11 and 12), Rowing, Sailing, Swimming, Tennis, Volleyball and Water Polo are the summer PSA sports played in Terms 4 and 1. Athletics, Badminton, Cross country, Football (Australian Rules), Golf, Hockey, Rugby, Sailing, Soccer and Surfing are the winter PSA sports played in Terms 2 and 3. Depending on numbers, CCGS also offers boys in Years 11 and 12, the opportunity to participate in non-traditional sporting activities such as self-defence, yoga or strength and conditioning programs. In winter, Strength and Conditioning is the only “non-sport” option available to students. These students will also represent the School on a Saturday fixture as part of the senior Cross country team.
