Our Mission

We are a non-profit, volunteer led organisation dedicated to helping elite athletes from Ynys Môn to compete at the NatWest International Island Games.

With the support of the Ynys Môn Charitable Trust, we also work in partnership with local clubs and organisations to help children develop their skills in sport to give them the opportunity to compete in the future.

 

Ynys Môn Island Games Association

The Ynys Môn Island Games Association was established to coordinate Ynys Môn’s participation at the International Island Games. Since the inaugural event, in 1985, Ynys Môn is proud of our long-term commitment to the event, and have seen athletes represent the island at each biannual event. We also aim to host the event on Ynys Môn in 2025. The association is made up entirely of volunteers and leads a team of around 150 athletes and officials, competing across an average of 10 sports at each games.

The aims and objectives of the Ynys Môn Island Games Association are to;

  • foster and encourage friendship between Island communities through sporting activities
  • provide, through the NatWest International Island Games, opportunities to participate in international sport
  • promote sport on Ynys Môn in support of the Island Games Association
  • co-ordinate administrative and financial arrangements to enable Ynys Môn’s participation every two years in the NatWest International Island Games.
  • promote and co-ordinate the hosting of an Island Games on Ynys Môn on an occasional basis.

Our Values

As part of a wider talent development project, supported by the Ynys Môn Charitable Trust, a number of talented young athletes were challenged to select values that they felt were important to continue to achieve excellence and be successful.
