London Youth Games season 2020
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 (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:
- indoor Cricket
Due to Covid-19 the London Youth Games has not been running their usual competitions. However they remain passionate about young people being active and running fun competition.
This year the LYG Cross Country event was delivered virtually, and some local motivated runners braved the cold to represent Team Southwark, submitting their times on-line to earn points for the borough. The Southwark physical activity team would like to thank all parents, teachers and supporters for their help, and a big congratulations to all the runners that took part.
If you want to be a part of Team Southwark’s success this year, contact us on LYG@Southwark.gov.uk to find out about the selection process for the different teams this year.
