Welcome to the Devon Virtual Games Events hosted and organised by Active Devon and the School Games Organisers.
Following the huge success of the #DevonVirtualGames Summer and Autumn Series in 2020, we are really excited to launch the Spring Series for 2021.
If you’ve not yet taken part, the #DevonVirtualGames is the Devon School Games with a twist as all competitions are virtual! This latest series of events run throughout the Spring term and will offer young people and families the opportunity to compete against themselves and others whilst maintaining social distancing. If you reside in, or attend a school in Devon you can take part. Plus, you can enter as many of the competition events as you like.
The Spring term events run from the 5th January 2021 – 1st April 2021. During this time there will be six different events which are suitable for both SEND and Mainstream schoolchildren, and their families to take part in. The competitions are suitable to do at home, in your backyard or garden, or at school. And in traditional Schools Games style, e-certificates will be issued for all challenges. Any participants who enter the following four challenges: Skipping, Golf, Basketball and the 30 Day Fitness Challenge will also be entered into a prize draw for one of the ten £20 amazon vouchers!
So, don’t miss out on taking part in the #DevonVirtualGames! Virtually team up with your classmates, represent your school and compete against other children across Devon.
