Global Games brings junior communities and cultures together and creates a level of understanding through sport at large festivals.
With junior athletes aged between 7 and 14 years of age we are fiercely dedicated to promoting strong ethos around sportsmanship and enjoyment.
There is also a big focus on family, meaning large numbers of supporters attend to support creating a real festival atmosphere with great social opportunities for young and old.

PRIMARY ETHOS

Enjoyment


A positive experience for all children attending our events is our primary objective and we always put their interests ahead of our own.
Event framework in place ensures that regardless of skill level, team enjoyment is secured and experiences maximized throughout. Every team will play throughout the whole weekend being matched against teams of equal ability.

Sportsmanship


Sportsmanship is at the heart of our festivals. Prior to each Global Games event teams attending are buddied up with another team from out of their region and put in touch before the big weekend. They are encouraged to meet up over the festival and support each other when they are not playing.
Other initiatives are a bonus points system in place for good and bad sportsmanship Which has help see a huge reduction in sideline tension and created a more vibrant atmosphere at our events. Teams will often stay in touch and will meet up again long after the last pass has been made.

Empowerment


We empower young people in a unified and inspiring way regardless of their sporting abilities or backgrounds. There are numerous stories from clubs attending the Global Games on the positive impact the experience has on their young people and the level of development they take away from traveling out from their home regions many for the first time. Getting the chance to interact with other cultures

Sustainability
