The Black Country School Games showcases the energy and passion young people have for sport, leadership and competition.

The focus of the Black Country School Games is to engage and enthuse more young people than ever before to participate in high quality meaningful school competition, supporting them in achieving their own personal best in sport and life.

The School Games is a chance for all schools in the Black Country to build on their existing work and boost school sport by creating a year-round competition calendar for all students.  These events culminate into the summer School Games festival.  The format is as follows: competition in schools, between schools and at county level.
