The Specsavers Youth Games is an inter-district sports competition for teams and individuals. It encourages all participants to try new sports they haven't been involved with previously. The entrants are from Years 5 and 6 from local primary schools and represent ages 9-11.
The principle aim of the Games is to promote the value of sport to the young people of Guernsey and therefore the emphasis is on fun, fair play and the creation of a festival atmosphere so young people can experience the feeling of participating in a large-scale sporting event.
The 2017 competition took place on Saturday 10th June. In the lead up to competition day, over 500 children who signed up to take part completed training in the 17 different individual sports. The main closing ceremony was held at Footes Lane, the winning district was West, whilst St Peter Port Won the Fairplay award. The next competition will take place on Saturday 15th June 2019.
