The biggest event on the School Games calendar is the National Finals.
What is it?
This annual four day multi-sport event is hosted between late August and early September in elite sporting venues across the country. Since 2016 the event has taken place at Loughborough University, who have worked alongside the Youth Sport Trust to create an inspirational and motivational setting which helps accustom the country’s most promising young athletes to a high quality, high pressure environment.
As of the end of the 2017 event, 19,200 young athletes have competed in the School Games. The School Games is extremely proud of all of its alumni. Many of its' athletes have gone on to be extremely successful, including Olympic and Paralympic medal winners Adam Peaty, Dina Asher-Smith, Ellie Simmonds, Hannah Cockroft, Jonny Peacock, and Max Whitlock. In fact, 56 of the 382 athletes representing Team GB at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio have competed at the School Games – 15% of the team – and if the School Games was a country it would have finished 17th in Brazil. But most importantly, the School Games provides a crucial environment to nurture top young athletes who come through the NGB talent systems.
Could a member of Trimley St Martin Primary School one daybe part of that alumni or even an Olympian?
