Driving participation across Lancashire

The Lancashire School Games Organisers (SGOs) have an integral role in supporting the delivery of the School Games across the county. They drive and increase participation, develop competition for all, link to local clubs, enable volunteering opportunities and much more in each district of Lancashire.

SGO's get involved at all levels of competition and physical activity but a lot of their work is focused around Level 1 (Intra) and 2 (Inter) of the School Games. We have 12 SGOs in Lancashire, working in each borough.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of the SPAR Lancashire School Games. Get in touch with your local School Games Organiser to be a part of the largest multi-sport festival in Lancashire.
