Week 50 - Challenges, Videos and Activities

During this time, we are aware of the struggles to keep being motivated to stay active and a part of the community. Disability Sports Coach want to help you with keeping on top of this!

Please see below the latest news on our activities and campaigns.

London Youth Games Virtual Games

Last week, we took part in the London Youth Games hockey challenge in our online session.

All scores were submitted and went towards borough total scores. Chris got the highest score for Barnet and Sophia wasn’t far behind for Wandsworth.

As well as hockey sticks, everything from an umbrella to a badminton racket was used. This shows just how easy it is to adapt sports online!

This week the challenges are cricket. Have a go at this bowling challenge below:
