Are you local to the Loughborough area? Do you want to help out at this year’s School Games National Finals? You have come to the right place, as we need you!

Between Thursday 2nd and Sunday 5th September, more than 1,300 young athletes will compete across ten sports, including disability disciplines, at venues across Loughborough University Campus.

The School Games National Finals will be the first multi-sport event for young athletes following the lifting of lockdown restrictions. Our athletes have spent the last year and a half working tirelessly on their fitness and training in the hopes of competing at Loughborough University this summer.

Now back and in its 14th year, we’ll be celebrating the resilience of our young athletes by sharing their stories of how they have stayed motivated and maintained their competitive edge to be ready to compete on this national stage.

While the event is coming back, things will be a little different this year, with parents and friends having to watch the event online to keep our young athletes safe while competing. And that’s where you come in! We need your help to make this year’s event unforgettable for our young athletes, whether that’s by cheering them on from the side-lines or helping us organise events on the day.
