Golden Cow Youth Games 2005

The Sports Council for Northern Ireland would like to thank the key partners for their commitment to the Golden Cow Youth Games.

The Games are organised in association with Belfast City Council and the Queens University Belfast together with event sponsor Golden Cow Dairies and Governing Bodies of Sport. With their continued support, the Golden Cow Youth Games have become firmly established in the Northern Ireland sporting calendar, increasing in size and quality on an annual basis.

The 6th Golden Cow Youth Games were a great success and took place on Saturday 07 & 14th May 2005 with venues across greater Belfast and beyond. The events involved over 3,500 talented young performers from across the province, representing their Education and Library Board and County areas and competing against one another for the honour of becoming Golden Cow Youth Games Champions. 

The Golden Cow Youth Games are the biggest multi-sport event to be held for young people in Northern Ireland. For many of the participants, the Golden Cow Youth Games are the pinnacle of their sporting career. For others, they have been a step on the path to future senior international sporting success. The Golden Cow Youth Games and associated Regional Development Squad programme are key elements of the Sports Council for Northern Irelandís performance pathway and Long Term Athlete Development models.

The Golden Cow Youth Games and Regional Development Squad programmes seek to provide talented young performers with sustained opportunities to develop themselves and their sporting performances. In the long term, it is hoped that this will lead to improved performance levels within Northern Ireland sport and to future sporting success.
