Virtual Together App

Have fun and stay active together at home with the Virtual Together app!

The Virtual Together app (on Playwaze) has been developed for individual and group physical activity and sport challenges, competitions and school sport.

The HiFIVE Challenges are perfect for children and families to have fun and stay active at home together. Our Lockdown Challenge is coming soon!

The Team Leicestershire and Daily Boost communities within the app provide a long term digital school sport solution beyond the current situation that will enable us to embed an ongoing virtual offer alongside annual calendars.

The involvement of the local School Sport & Physical Activity Network (SSPANs) also means that schools and young people will be able to engage with local district (Level 2 / Inter school) challenges, the county-wide (Level 3) offer from us at LRS and will also offer leadership opportunities within schools.
