These will take place on Tuesday 27th June 2017 at Bedford International Athletics Stadium. Over 950 children will be competing across 7 different sports – athletics (mainstream and inclusive) , golf, softball, rounders, rowing (mainstream and inclusive) , kurling (inclusive) and cycling (mainstream and inclusive). All teams competing on the day (apart from softball and rowing) will have qualified to get there by competing in their local Level 2 competition. We will also have a team of School Games Makers volunteering on the day to help run events and cover social media for The Games. The day will start with an opening ceremony.
The School Games operates locally at 3 Levels.
- Level 1: Intra competition - this takes place within the school leading into a school festival.
- Level 2: Inter competition - school teams competing against other local schools.
- Level 3: Team Beds & Luton wide multi-sport School Games which provide the opportunity for schools to compete in County finals and also take part in some open entry events.
What do the Level 3 School Games entail?
The Level 3 School Games are much more than just a sports competition, they are a celebration of young people's talent with young people at the heart of the Games. They provide opportunities for young leaders to get involved with the delivery of different sports, help out with event management and form part of the media crew. Young people also have the chance to perform in opening ceremonies, try their hand at new sports and embrace the cultural element of the Games, as well as excelling on the sports field.
The Local Organising Committee (LOC) takes the strategic lead on School Games and ensure the Level 3 School Games are delivered successfully. Linking into this committee is an operational group which agrees the sports/formats/year groups of the Level 3 events and ensures the Level 2 competition calendars feed in creating clear competition pathways.
