The Munster Schools Athletic Association (MSAA) is a voluntary organisation which under the auspices of the Irish Schools Athletics Association supports athletics in secondary schools throughout Munster.

There are 3 regions – North, South and East. Some events have regional qualifiers (Cross-Country and Track & Field), others (Combined-Events and Indoor Games) are held at Munster level only with direct entry. Each region has their own website, which can be accessed via the LINKS menu.

Any recognised secondary school may affiliate annually for the nationally set fee and then students may enter the various events which are staged. It is an absolute requirement that schools be affiliated before students compete in any regional or provincial competition.
