Two new sports will take centre stage at the Trinidad and Tobago Commonwealth Youth Games in 2023.

Triathlon and Fast5 netball are set to be competed in for the first time at the Games, with the others sports confirmed as aquatics, athletics, cycling, rugby sevens and beach volleyball.

Scheduled to be held from August 4 to 11, athletes aged between 14 and 18 from across the Commonwealth countries including Bermuda, will compete in two clusters, one in Couva, Trinidad, and the other Tobago.

This is to make sure the diverse perspective of the twin island country is showcased to the Commonwealth nations.

"We are delighted to confirm the Sport Programme for the 2023 Commonwealth Youth Games, featuring much-anticipated debuts in the Youth Games for the dynamic and innovative FAST5 Netball and Triathlon,“ said, Dame Louise Martin, president of the Commonwealth Games Federation.

"It promises to be a thrilling and competitive Games and exceptional showcasing of Caribbean and Commonwealth Sport.

"An invaluable springboard for the stars and leaders of tomorrow, the Games will be a truly special and inspiring experience for young athletes from across the Commonwealth."

Trinidad and Tobago were supposed to host the Games in 2021 but it was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The last edition of the Commonwealth Youth Games was held in the Bahamas in 2017.
