To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first Commonwealth Youth Games, held in Edinburgh in 2000, Team Scotland has announced a special reunion event bringing together past team members from all six Youth Games to date.
First held as part of Scotland’s Millennium celebrations, athletes from 14 countries competed in Edinburgh in 2000 and the event quickly proved to be a great success. The Youth Games now attracts entries from all 70 nations and territories of the Commonwealth and has been the ideal introduction to multi-sport Games for a host of international stars.
All athletes and staff who represented Team Scotland at Edinburgh 2000, Bendigo 2004, Pune 2008, Isle of Man 2011, Samoa 2015 or Bahamas 2017 is invited to join us, take a trip down memory lane and catch up with friends. Commonwealth Games Scotland Archives will host a display of memorabilia and photographs from all six Youth Games to spark memories and get the conversation flowing.
Come and join in the celebrations on Saturday May 16th at Oriam on Heriot Watt University’s campus in Edinburgh, the site of the first Commonwealth Youth Games Athletes’ Village.

We look forward to seeing you there!
