Team Jersey will be represented by nine teenagers at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Trinidad and Tobago this summer.
Three sports will be represented – athletics, swimming and triathlon – for the weeklong Games, which kick off on 4 August.
Matty Deffains, Oscar Dodds, Megan Hansford, Filip Nowacki, Sam Sterry and Isaac Thompson will represent Jersey in the pool, with triathletes Luke Holmes and Siena Stephens and sprinter Jamie Oldham also selected.
More than 1,000 athletes and para-athletes between the ages of 14 and 18 are expected to participate in seven sports during the Games.
The Games have traditionally taken place every four years with the first event being hosted in Edinburgh in 2000.
Trinidad and Tobago were initially awarded the 2021 Commonwealth Youth Games in June 2019, but the Games were postponed due to the impact of the pandemic on the international sport calendar.
Commonwealth Games Association of Jersey team leader Andy Hamon said: "I am really pleased to be taking a full team of athletes spread across three different sports.
"I am looking forward to supporting the athletes in achieving their best performances for Team Jersey."
