Team Lambeth are looking for young athletes who live or go to school in the borough to represent Lambeth in the first ever London Youth Games (LYG) Virtual Games.
Four weeks of sporting challenges
LYG Virtual Games. take place over four-weeks, starting Monday 8 June, giving you the chance to represent your local community (and yourself) in sport-related challenges (including challenges set by young runners, cyclists and others from across London). These challenges can be done at home, at school or while out for daily exercise.
Three new weekly challenges will be released every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 9.00am on the London Youth Games website and via social media. Young people have until Friday at 12.00pm to complete the challenges and submit their scores. All the challenges relate to one of the 30+ London Youth Games sports and are set by young Londoners who’ve taken part in the Games.
The LYG Virtual Games are open to all – virtual teams compete to complete the 12 challenges to earn points for their Borough. All the challenges come with suggested adaptations for space, equipment and ability to ensure they are as inclusive as possible. An online leaderboard with the latest Borough standings will be updated every week, and after the final challenge, the winning Borough will be crowned the first ever LYG Virtual Games champions. So make sure to tag #TeamLambeth on your entries!
Most Valuable Player
Individual prizes are also up for grabs. Young people are encouraged to share videos of their challenge attempts on social media using the hashtag #ThisIsLYG, and be in with a chance of winning the weekly MVP (Most Valuable Player) award. Each week a MVP will be selected based on the ability, creativity and style shown in their videos and the winners will receive a pair of Nike trainers. Again, please #TeamLambeth .
