Future Swimming Stars in Action at the Sainsbury’s School Games

14 September 2013

From the 12th – 15th September 2013, Sheffield is playing host to this year’s Sainsbury’s School Games, a multi-sport event for the nation’s most talented young athletes of school age.

Over 1, 600 potential future sports stars will compete across 12 sports in eight venues across Sheffield, a city famed for sporting heritage and home to some of the UK’s top athletes.

Alongside the competing athletes, around 400 volunteers under 25 years old will bring the Sainsbury’s 2013 School Games to life, along with thousands of spectators.

Swimming at the School Games consists of 22 events for both boys and girls, including six disability events, all taking place at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre. This year 196 athletes will compete representing eight teams; England North, England South, England East, England Central, Scotland North and West, Scotland South and East, Ireland and Wales.

With opening and closing ceremonies, an athletes’ village and an athlete education programme, the Sainsbury’s 2013 School Games emulates the feel and environment of major sporting events such as the Olympic, Paralympic or Commonwealth games.

Athletes are selected on the basis of their performance in specific events throughout the calendar so swimmers will be hoping to achieve their very best times with many on the verge of becoming elite competitors.

The School Games is supported by lottery funding from Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust.
