The Sport Programme for Trinbago 2021 has now been confirmed with eight exciting sports set to feature next year.

Australia has participated in all six Commonwealth Youth Games, commencing in 2000 in Edinburgh.
Participation in the Commonwealth Youth Games is a vital part of CGA’s commitment to young and developing athletes.
The Games provides an important opportunity for developing young athletes to experience a multi-sport Games, but also provides an opportunity for the next generation of team support staff who could potentially be involved in future Commonwealth Games.
