The Games have been running for more than 20 years, with around 4,000 primary school children now taking part in the series every year.

Prizes are awarded at each event and points are gained towards the overall MYG title. A fair play trophy is awarded at each event and there is an annual participation prize for the school that selects the largest number of children to take part in MYG events. 

Leading schools also qualify for our Champions Series finals, where the top eight schools in each sport

Each competition is available to children from Year 5 to Year 9.
