Do your kids dream of being a sporting champion, do they want to hold up a gold medal in Rio? The Next Olympic Games is only a few years away, so any young aspiring athlete is probably already well into their training programme right now. But if they would like to get in some extra practice or can't wait until 2016, why not let them enter the London Youth Games?

The annual event launched in 1977 to mark the Queen's Silver Jubilee, and has been going strong ever since. There are a total of eighty competitions across thirty-one different sports, aimed at young people age 6-19. Of course, you don't have to be a future Olympiad; anyone with a passion for sports can take part.

Training has already got underway for hockey, and the qualifiers will start on the 15th June. Although the deadline has passed for a number of sports, you can still sign-up for archery, athletics, team badminton, and many more. Just pick your team (borough), and away you go.

At the end of the event, the borough with the most points will win the Jubilee Trophy. Last year it was Croydon, but Havering have won an impressive sixteen times.
