LRS Virtual School Games
On Friday 26th June 2020, Uppingham School Sports Centre was due to host this year’s Leicester-Shire & Rutland School Games Summer Championships. This is one of the biggest primary school sport events of the year, with over 1,000 children from over 100 schools across the county representing their School Sport & Physical Activity Network (SSPAN) in a range of sports and competitions.
Unfortunately, this year, the coronavirus pandemic has forced the cancellation of the event, but we are excited to announce that they will be now running our first ever “Virtual School Games Summer Championships” in its place. This new and innovative virtual event will give even more young people the opportunity to participate and represent their school in this interactive county-wide competition, as the challenges taking place will be open to all and accessible whether you are taking part individually at home, or if you are now back in a school environment.
Launching on Monday 22nd June (the start of National School Sport Week) and running throughout the week, young people will be able to take part in the challenges and upload their scores at any time during the week. Click on the document below to view more details.
