Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the start of the 2020/2021 school games season will look a little different.
Virtual competitions will run from September 2020 to July2020.
Each competition will have an activity card (including description, key points etc), and an entry form for schools to submit their scores.
Each activity will have a live leader board for each event. There will be a Local Authority competition which will run for two weeks followed by a Battle of the Black Country to determine the overall winners as well.
Each month there will be a new competition, which will last for 3 weeks in total. After competing, each school will submit their scores online.
