South West Youth games chosen to be our 2019 Charity.

“With rising levels of child obesity and mental health issues among young people, The South West Youth Games Trust is on a mission to engage more young people in Devon and Cornwall into regular community sport and regular physical activity. The Trust passionately believes in sport and physical activity as the foundation for the wellbeing of young people. By delivering a programme of innovative, accessible and inspirational event experiences, the Trust is contributing to happier and healthier lives for young people across the South West

Here is a case study…


Working closely with the RFU, the Games are a catalyst for growing the girls game - acting as an incentive to enable the sport to attract new female players. In 2018, this involved several weeks of recruitment, regular training and the Girls Rugby tournament at the Games Finals. As a direct result of the Games, five new under 13 girls’ teams have been created at clubs across Devon and new players were recruited at five other clubs. 79% of the girls had no previous experience of club rugby prior to 2018.”
