Hundreds start training for Sporting Club Manx Youth Games

Wed, 26 Jan 2022


Hundreds of children have started training towards the Sporting Club Manx Youth Games, on the same day that the 2022 event was officially launched in Douglas.

The Island’s largest multi-sport event sees young people take part in a series of regional training sessions, before putting their skills into action on the big day on 7 May. 

In the coming months, Manx Sport and Recreation will host more than 50 weekly get-togethers for children to try one of 14 sports, including a multi-sport offering for those with additional needs, all made possible by an army of volunteers.

Julie Edge MHK, Minister of Education, Sport and Culture, said: ‘The Games provide our young people with the perfect opportunity to try new sports, make friendships and see the benefits of getting active for physical and emotional wellbeing. It also instils important values such as team work and discipline and I am confident, with our new sponsor on board, it will continue to go from strength-to-strength.’

More than 20,000 young people have taken part in the Games since it was first held in 2002.
