“The main thing about the day is to have fun” – Nigel Levine, 4x400m Gold medalist
The thrilling Specsavers Sussex School Games is a ‘mini-Olympics & Paralympics’, giving Sussex schoolchildren the chance to participate in competitive school sport at county level across multiple sport disciplines.
Its aim is to provide an inclusive sporting opportunity for young people to be involved in a range of sports and provide a meaningful experience, whatever their ability.
It gives young people the opportunity to represent their school and be proud of their achievements while creating happy memories and experiences they can share with their families.
The Specsavers Sussex School Games will take place on Wednesday 26 June 2019, at the K2 Crawley.

The five levels of the School Games pathway give young people the chance to compete at county & national level:
Level 0 – Personal challenges
Level 1 – Intra-school competition & participation
Level 2 – Inter-school competition
Level 3 – County competition – Sussex School Games: Festival of Sport
Level 4 – Elite National School Games
The Level 3 ‘Sussex School Games’ event is based on Active Sussex’s geographical area – combining East Sussex, West Sussex & Brighton & Hove.
It is organised by a Local Organising Committee (LOC), chaired by a head teacher, and includes representatives from local authorities, National Governing Bodies (NGBs) & the Sussex School Sports Network.
Active Sussex’s role is as background coordinator, NGB link & vice-chair, with local clubs and groups also contributing.
