The West of England School Games comprises of three large scale multi-sport events across the year which showcase young people’s sporting talent from across the whole area. To see the latest action from our Summer School Games in July 2017, watch the video to the right.
The School Games is a national initiative which motivates young people to participate in competitive school sport. Wesport aims to provide a wide range of sporting opportunities through the West of England School Games, not just for athletes, but to also encompass leadership and cultural elements to positively impact on as many young people’s lives as possible.
How it works?
The School Games is made up of 4 levels:
- Level 1 – Intra-school competition
- Level 2 – Inter-school competition (Local or District organised by School Games Organisers)
- Level 3 – County finals (organised by Wesport)
- Level 4 – National finals (organised by Youth Sport Trust)
