We want to hear from any Shark paddlers, who are taking part, let us know how you are getting on, send us some pictures, videos scores etc, you can even write a report to share on our pages if you want: firstname.lastname@example.org. And for those grown ups who feel a bit left out, we will happily have our own competition if you want to send us the videos!
The LYG Virtual Inclusive Games will run for eight weeks, with three different challenges released each week. Whilst the competition is open to all young Londoners to participate, the challenges are set by young disabled people to raise awareness of the importance of disabled people remaining active and to celebrate their achievements. To participate in the LYG Virtual Inclusive Games, young Londoners must complete the challenges and submit their scores via the London Youth Games website. Challenges will be released every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 9am via the London Youth Games website and social media channels. Challenges can be found at https://www.londonyouthgames.org/virtual-games/lyg-virtual-inclusive-games/ , along with details of how to submit your scores)
Participants will then have until Monday at 12noon to complete the challenges and submit their scores. Young Londoners will be representing their boroughs, who will receive points based on participation numbers. A leaderboard will be published each week showing the latest borough standings, and at the end of the competition, the winning borough will be revealed. As an added incentive, a group of athlete ambassadors will be helping to inspire and support the young people through the challenges, and individual prizes will also be up for grabs.
Young people are encouraged to share videos of their challenge attempts on social media using #ThisIsLYG to be in with a chance of winning the weekly MVP (Most Valuable Player) award and some Nike swag. Week one of the LYG Virtual Inclusive Games begins with a series of Basketball challenges. The challenges have been set by Freya from the London Titans Wheelchair Basketball Club, Cameron a former LYG participant from Southwark, and James and Olivia representing the Richmond Knights Basketball Club.
