London Youth Games Virtual Games

This week saw the launch of the London Youth Games Virtual Games which sees young Londoners setting challenges for other young Londoners. The first three challenges included a 5 shot challenge, 60 second burpee challenge and bottle cap challenge.

The LYG Virtual Games are open to all children and young people from London, who will compete across the twelve different challenges to earn points for their Boroughs. All the challenges come with suggested adaptations for space, equipment and ability to ensure they are as inclusive as possible. A 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.

The first Challenge Video for Week 2 will be released on the London Youth Games website and social media channels on Monday 15th June at 9:00am. Here are links to download the Challenge Sheets, which include coaching tips and suggested adaptations for space, equipment, and ability.

New afPE FAQs Document: COVID-19 and PESSPA in a School Setting

The Association for Physical Education hosted a free webinar on 21st May 2020 entitled ‘COVID-19: Interpreting the Government Guidance in a PESSPA Context’. As a result of the webinar, we have been inundated with questions and queries from the sector.
