West Yorkshire Sport in partnership with The Education Network motivates and inspires thousands of young people across the county to take part in more competitive sports.
As part of the School Games, the events are organised by the West Yorkshire Sport teams who have a remit to develop PE and School sport opportunities across all schools in the county.
The West Yorkshire School Games has been, for the past 13 years, the ultimate partnership event involving all five West Yorkshire local authorities, 18 School Sports Partnerships and ten National Governing Bodies of Sport.
The teams that compete at the West Yorkshire School Games are district winners having qualified through local school events, although there are a few ‘open’ events for direct entry that do not require qualification.
In some sports, teams that triumph at the West Yorkshire School Games will be offered the opportunity to represent West Yorkshire in further competitions through the National Governing Bodies of Sport.
