Do you love sport, aged 8 to 18, and live or go to school in Southwark

The London Youth Games is Europe's largest youth sports festival, a season of events taking place across 9 months. It runs a borough vs borough format with sports competitions across the capital in over 30 sports. You can find more information about the sports here (pdf, 104kb).

Young people are selected to represent Southwark through trials and club activities to gain the opportunity to test themselves against the best young athletes in London, and follow the footsteps of Rio Ferdinand and Jordan Sancho.

We're currently taking expression of interest for the following sports:

  • cross-country
  • boccia
  • indoor Cricket
