The History of the European Paralympic Youth Games

Posted 3/21/2019

The European Paralympic Committee is a project managed by the European Paralympic Committee.

 

Conceived in 2011, the Games are part of the Committee’s aim to develop the Paralympic Movement by creating a platform to inspire young European athletes aged 13-23 to take part in Paralympic Sport and begin their Paralympic journey. In addition the Games aim to reflect the highest standards of athletic excellence, thus attracting many young rising stars in the Paralympic Movement to compete.

 

The Games are seen by many as one of the first steps for new athletes on their journey to a professional sporting career, and it’s no surprise that a significant number of athletes taking part in EYPGs have gone on to represent their country at other international events.

 

This combination of relatively new para-athletes, with established rising stars in the Paralympic Movement, sets the EYPGs out as an exciting competition for competitors and spectators alike.
