The New South Wales Combined Independent Schools Sports Council (NSWCISSC), known as CIS, was formed in 1996 for the purpose of providing independent school students and staff with the opportunity to participate in State and National school sporting activities previously only available to those in State schools.

CIS primary and secondary representative teams are selected to compete with their peers from the State and Catholic sectors at the various NSWPSSA (Primary) and NSW All Schools (Secondary) activities from which state representative teams are chosen to participate in sporting exchanges with teams from other states and territories.

CSSA schools have the opportunity to become a CIS member and be part of the structure that provides over eighty thousand students the opportunity to participate in higher levels of sporting involvement in a wide variety of sports.

CSSA students from CIS member schools are given the opportunity to trial for a variety of sporting teams to represent CSSA at CIS.
