Our families play an essential and ongoing role in enabling athletes to achieve their potential. The continuous support our athletes receive from parents, siblings, grand-parents, cousins, uncles, makes us feel both inspired and proud.

We know from experience that the National Summer Games offer families the opportunity to share and celebrate their son or daughter’s abilities. We expect around 5,000 family members will travel to Sheffield from all corners of Great Britain to support our athletes.

To recognise the contribution made by families we are delighted to offer a Families Programme throughout the games.

Our sincere thanks for the support of our friends and supporters from Lions Clubs International (MD 105) who are looking forward to delivering the Families Programme for the second consecutive games.

The Games in 2017 will coincide with Lions celebrating their centenary year, so it will be a very special summer for both organisations!
