Youth Games 2017 Launched
Thursday, 12 January, 2017
Guernsey children in Years 5 and 6 are invited to try new sports at this year’s Specsavers Youth Games. The Guernsey Sports Commission is encouraging pupils to represent their district in one of 16 sports and try a sport they don’t usually take part in.
The aim of the games is to promote the value of sport to young people with the emphasis on fun, fair play and a festival atmosphere. In order to learn as much as possible about each sport, coaching sessions will take place in the six weeks before the Games Day finale on Saturday 10th June at Footes Lane
Each team within a sport is assigned a coach who is responsible for that particular group of children throughout training and on games day. To continue with the aim of fostering community links, each of the six districts is given a different colour and is led by a team leader, who is a deputy from that district.
