The objects of the Association are the advancement of the moral and physical welfare and development of school pupils through the medium of athletics. Fundamental to this are the organisation of county schools track and field, cross country, combined events and sports hall championships and the selection of teams from these championships to go forward to the Regional (South West) and National Championships.
The Association is affiliated to the English Schools Athletic Association and is run by a committee, comprising the offices of Chairman (Andrew Beadle), Vice Chair (Elliot Prince) Secretary/Treasurer (Sue Padfield) and Team Managers plus representatives from each of the districts, which meets on a regular basis to conduct the affairs of the association. All schools and colleges within the six districts affiliate to the association on an annual basis.
