Devon Virtual Games for Children and Young People to do Virtually: Details Here
Welcome to the Devon Virtual Games hosted and organised by Active Devon and the School Games Organisers.
Following the huge success of the #DevonVirtualGames which started in 2020 we’re set to continue delivering high quality virtual opportunities for children and young people across Devon.
If you’ve not yet taken part, the #DevonVirtualGames is the virtual offer of the Devon School Games. Challenges and competitions will run throughout the year, offering young people the opportunity to compete against themselves and others virtually. If you reside in, or attend a school in Devon you can take part. Plus, you can enter as many as you like.
There will be new challenges and competitions launched each term which will be suitable for both SEND and Mainstream schoolchildren. And in traditional Schools Games style, e-certificates will be issued.
So, don’t miss out on taking part in the #DevonVirtualGames! Team up with your classmates, represent your school, and compete against other children across Devon.
