Mencap Virtual Challenge Week

Mencap and Special Olympics GB are holding a virtual challenge week for teams to take part in and is a free, online, team competition where members can complete skills challenges to earn points for their club or group.

How it works

Team leaders register their interest, following the link provided and then you will then be sent more instructions on how to register your team and any participants.

A team can be an organisation, service, sports club or any kind of inclusive group and you can have any number of players taking part for your team. Players could be part of an organisation, a specific sports club or an inclusive group of any kind.

Players will get to choose between 4 levels of competition depending on their ability, and the challenges are designed to ensure they are suitable for everyone with a learning disability to compete in.

When completing the challenge, players will earn points for their team, which will create an overall winning team at the end of the week – announced at a glitzy awards ceremony on the afternoon of Friday 29 January.

All kinds of sport related prizes will be up for grabs, including the chance to win equipment or specialist coaching for your group or organisation. Everyone who signs up to compete will get a certificate and some goodies to help them during the week.

Timetable of activities

Each day of the competition will revolve around a different skill, important for sport and physical activity.

All of these are designed to be done in any environment, using any equipment.

It could be a ball of socks and a dustbin in your living room, or a basketball and hoop on a court.

The timetable is as follows:

  • Monday: Movement
  • Tuesday: Throwing
  • Wednesday: Hitting
  • Thursday: Kicking
  • Friday: Showcase and awards.

To begin the sign up process please complete the registration of interest following the link, and then someone from Mencap Sport team will be in contact.
