Hampshire School Games

What are the Hampshire School Games?

The Hampshire School Games are a series of activities, events and competitions delivered through Hampshire & IOW School Games Organisers and Energise Me, giving all schools in Hampshire & IOW the opportunity to take part, regardless of ability.

They inspire young people to be physically active for life through positive experiences of daily activity and competition. They create opportunities and experiences that young people will enjoy and get involved in, by trying new sports and activities.

The School Games are more than competition, they support the wider development of young people.


What does this mean for your school?

The Hampshire School Games provide opportunities for young people across the county to get active and have fun. All schools can access a local face to face offer, which is provided through the local School Games Organiser (your local SGO details can be found lower down the page), or a Virtual Offer (this will be available at the start of the Autumn Term), while some schools can also participate in county finals competitions.

It is great to see so many young people participating in such a wide range of sports and enjoying being physically active.
