The School Games, which is funded by Sport England National Lottery and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust, is a government led programme designed to deliver competitive school sport to all young people in England. School Games Organisers (SGO’s) are funded through Sport England and tasked with delivering the School Games programme.

Southampton are fortunate to have two SGO’s, and this is due to the size of the city. Between 2013 and 2017 Solent University hosted one of these under its Sports Partnership banner. However, since 2017 we have had the benefit of hosting both, an approach that has brought with it an improved working relationship and an increase in provision.

Volunteers are at the heart of the SGO programme and we have been very fortunate to have so many fantastic students dedicate their time to support the journey of young people across Southampton. This year alone has seen 65 students from various degree pathways engage in volunteering opportunities within the School Games, which amounts to over 250 hours.

These opportunities provide an excellent individual development opportunity for students at Solent. Providing them with skills that relate to their degree and enhance the real-world learning opportunities that so many of the degrees are based around.

If you would like to volunteer your time to support the School Games programme, please contact Amy or Mark.

What we're doing virtually

The Hampshire School Games Organiser’s made the decision in June 2020 to make the Autumn Term competitions virtual.

Due to the uncertainty of Covid-19, and the advice given to ensure the safety of all involved. We have created a programme of eight activities based on the competitions that would normally have occurred in the Autumn term. All the activities are skill based and are designed to use as little equipment as possible.
