Athletics SA’s Premiership Cup competition is a key track and field competition, which is generally held on a weekly basis from October to March/April each year. There are normally 16 rounds of competition, which are interspersed with other track and field events such as state championships and school focussed events. Premiership Cup competition is suitable for participants of all ages and abilities, as the competition is seeded, meaning participants compete against others of similar ability. Participants compete individually in as many events disciplines as they like and accumulate points for their clubs based on their performances. Points accumulate across the course of the season and at the conclusion of the Premiership Cup competition, clubs are awarded pennants in a number of age and gender categories.

The close off times are strictly adhered to due to data entry that must occur prior to the commencement of the event.
