Dedicated to spring-boarding young athletes in their competitive sporting careers, the School Games National Finals not only provides a fantastic multi-sport event for Britain’s brightest young athletes, but a platform for growth and learning too.

Led by the Youth Sport Trust (YST), the School Games National Finals provide an opportunity for inspiring young athletes to have a taste of a mini-Olympics, staying in team accommodation, spectating other sporting events and pulling on the kit of their country.

YST has paired up with Loughborough University for the third consecutive year, to ensure that we are matching our competitors high-level sporting abilities with world-class sporting facilities.

The School Games is dedicated to creating an unforgettable athlete experience, with viewing opportunities available through our live streaming for spectators. If you want to get behind the athletes, we have created some social media graphics for you to use to support your athletes from home. You can download them here
