MISSION OF THE "GAMES": "Helping Good Kids Make Good Choices"
To recognize and reward Connecticut residents, of all ages, who have chosen to participate in healthy, wholesome activities that reflect positively on them, their families and respective communities.
To promote and reinforce the Olympic spirit of Competition that values sportsmanship, effort and achievement.
To motivate personal development in physical fitness and health through attainable goals.
To provide a forum that initiates and encourages camaraderie between different ages, socioeconomic and cultural groups through athletic competition and fair play.

The Nutmeg State Games, through the venue of competitive sports, seeks to contribute positively to the physical, mental and emotional growth of our athletes. We believe that participation in athletics provides opportunities to develop the qualities of leadership, hard work, self confidence and mental and physical toughness. Competitive athletics lays the foundation for positive lifelong habits that contribute to a healthy life style and teaches team work, sportsmanship and respect for others. The Nutmeg State Games includes participants from all religious, racial and socio economic groups contributing to a truly statewide Connecticut event.

MORE THAN JUST A GAME: Personal Development, Sportsmanship, Physical Fitness, Teamwork, Volunteerism.
