Mini Youth Games (MYG)

Mini Youth Games

The Mini Youth Games is our flagship school games series where primary school children compete in a wide range of sporting competitions.

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.

Child-friendly Medway supports the Mini Youth Games.

Child-friendly Medway

Our Child-friendly initiative is in its early stages and focuses on putting children and young people at the heart of everything we do, ensuring young people shape the future of Medway.

We launched this new initiative with a survey asking children and young people things like:

  • what it is like to grow up in Medway?
  • what are their favourite places?
  • how can we make Medway a more child-friendly place? 

We had over 3,000 responses with some amazing ideas from children and young people.

We are still consulting children and young people to shape Medway's child-friendly future through:

  • child-friendly City Halls
  • focus groups
  • special activities and programming.

If you would like to learn more, share ideas or get involved with the new Child-friendly Medway initiative please email childfriendly@medway.gov.uk or visit our Child-friendly Medway page.
