BIG NEWS!

We are very excited to let you know about a brand new competition launched by London Youth Games this week. If you have kids at home right now who are cell phone/social media mad then this could be the perfect thing for them!

The London Youth Games have just announced the launch of ‘The Virtual Games’ – an online competition in place of the regular 2020 season which was cancelled due to Coronavirus.

Young people across the borough are encouraged to jump online and take part in the challenges that are set with weekly prizes up for grabs (like pairs of Nike trainers!) and points going towards Havering’s score and the overall trophy.

The Virtual Games are open to all children and young people from London. You do not need to be a footballer to complete the football challenge or a netballer to complete the netball challenge.  All of them will come with suggested adaptations for space, equipment and ability to ensure they are as inclusive as possible.

The first challenge will be released Monday 8th June and participants are asked to upload their videos to any of their channels (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok etc) using the hashtags #ThisIsLYG and #TeamHavering as well as tagging London Youth Games to be in to win. 

If you want to head across to our pages then we will be posting the challenges and updates regularly:
