School Games Mission: Keeping competitive sport at the heart of schools and providing more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best.
The School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport. Funded by Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust, it is a government led programme designed to deliver competitive school sport to all young people.
The Games are made up of four levels of activity:
- Intra-School Competition (Level 1)
- Local Inter-School Competition (Level 2)
- County Final (Level 3)
- School Games National Finals
A Local Organising Committee (LOC) oversees the direction and planning for the School Games and then the events and competitions are made possible by working with various partners, including SGO Schools, Clubs, NGB’s, Sports Coaches, Local Authorities and Volunteers.
