London Youth Games - The Virtual Games
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 other pages then we will be posting the challenges and updates regularly:

Corona Virus Update
Following advice from central government, Havering Active are suspending all sports training, leagues, festivals and events until further notice.
We will assess this on an ongoing basis and review the service in due course but for now, all trials, training, weekly, holiday and funded sessions will stop. We will keep everyone updated on when the sessions will restart, and any changes to this stance will be updated via emails, social media and our website.
If you are able to continue with some sort of physical activity, and as long as it is in line with government guidelines around isolation and at risk groups, we would recommend you do so. This may be a brisk walk near your home or a home workout. There are many readily available online resources for a quick and easy to follow workout in the comfort of your own home.
