We are excited to announce that the Youth Sport Trust and SailGP have collaborated to create a new Schools Games Impact Award category.

The new award, called Youth Sport Trust and SailGP Schools Impact League Award, recognises schools, School Games Organisers, Active Partnerships, National Governing Bodies of Sport, and National Disability Sports Organisations who contribute to developing a better planet by embracing sustainable school sport and the School Games Eco-Friendly value.
