New for this year

The nationally acclaimed Black Country School Games are now in their third year – with teams representing Walsall chosen from a series of inter-school competitions.
The competition framework starts with intra-school events at individual schools followed by inter-school competitions across Walsall which are coordinated by 3 Walsall based School Games Organisers, with the successful schools representing the borough at the Black Country School Games.
You can now benefit from our coaching expertise to identify the top performers to represent your school in the next games. Let us plan and deliver your intra-school events or any other coaching sessions tailored to suit the needs of your children to help them bring home the title!
