The Jersey Games

The Jersey Games


Jersey is still welcoming tourism and is a viable option for a sports or study tour in 2021. The Jersey Games is a four-sport event (netball, football, rugby and hockey) for Prep Schools and Clubs, supported by Visit Jersey.

The festival is aimed at 10 to 13 year-olds and offers expert sports coaching, a sports tournament and wonderful excursions.

It takes place every Easter on the beautiful island of Jersey, using the island’s best sporting facilities and excursions, including The Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. Your teams will have a fabulous sporting and cultural trip.

Monday 5th April - Friday 9th April 2021

Sports

The main sports at The Jersey Games are:

  • Netball
  • Football (boys & girls)
  • Rugby
  • Hockey

If, however, you have a significant number from another sport (swimming for example), we will happily look at a supplementary programme.

As we have sent many clubs, prep and secondary schools to Jersey, we are lucky enough to have access to Jersey’s top sports facilities.

Coaching

We place an emphasis on the sport during The Jersey Games. Our aim is to make the sport fun, but beneficial too. Consequently, we ensure that each sport has top quality coaching as part of the programme.

For example, we work with ID Elite coaching, one of the leading football coaching companies on Jersey as well as Jersey’s netball development officer. You can be sure that your boys and girls will come back with new ideas and new skills.

The quality of coaches ensures the sessions are both beneficial and enjoyable. Coupled with the competition, participants will gain a great deal from the sport during the week.

Accommodation

The Jersey Games isn’t just about fantastic sporting venues, it’s also about using the very best hotel for schools on the Island.

The Merton Hotel provides excellent service and a great range of facilities. This means, for example, we are able to host a Cinema Evening, use the hotel pool areas and provide space should groups require a private meeting.

Activities

The Jersey Games offers a range of activities that aim to give participants a taste of what Jersey has to offer with activities such as a visit to Durrell Wildlife Park, Gorey Castle, St Helier and a beach visit.

We appreciate that this will be many children’s first trip away from home so we ensure they have a great time and are kept entertained at all times. On the last night there is a disco and presentation ceremony. It rounds off the week and rewards all of the hard work and endeavour throughout the coaching sessions and tournament.
