About Bahamas 2017
The sixth edition of the Commonwealth Youth Games was held in the Bahamas from 18-23 July 2017, the first time a Commonwealth Games event has been held in the Caribbean for over 50 years. The Youth Games was held in the capital Nassau, venue for the prestigious World Relay Championships in athletics in 2014 and 2015.
The Opening Ceremony and the first day of sporting action took place on 18 July and was followed by a further five days of competition through to 23 July. A cultural week ran alongside the competition, which allowed the athletes to mix with their peers from around the Commonwealth and learn about other cultures.
The sports programme saw Judo, Beach Volleyball and Beach Soccer make their Youth Games debut, as well as a return for Cycling, last held in 2011. Team Scotland compete in seven of the nine sports: Athletics, Beach Volleyball, Boxing, Cycling, Judo, Swimming and Tennis, with Beach Soccer and Rugby Sevens the other two sports on the programme.
