NFYFC will host its last Challenge Finals Day on 15 August, which will mark the end of isolation challenges and YFC at Home.

The online event will give YFC members the chance to vote on the finalists from recent isolation challenges and the results of the Junior Member of the Year and Senior Member of the Year will also be announced. 

This will be the third Challenge Finals Day that NFYFC has held since lockdown started in March. Clubs and counties have been getting involved in the challenges as well as creating their own virtual competitions to keep YFC members engaged.

Clubs in England are now able to start thinking about being able to meet again once they have Covid-secure measures in place and so the focus is shifting away from online challenges to help make this a reality. It is hoped this will be possible in Wales very soon too. 

But with uncertainties about the pandemic’s impact on the year ahead, the Competitions committee are preparing alternative ideas for competitions should restrictions be tightened again.

Competitions Chairman Grace Millbank said: “It has been a really difficult time for everyone not being able to hold our competition finals in the usual way. We are so used to celebrating YFC achievements together and Covid-19 removed those opportunities in the 2019-20 membership year. Isolation challenges have kept us all busy and we’re now really eager to see YFC members participating in the YFC competitions in clubs and county federations ready for NFYFC finals throughout next year – although we’re ever mindful of the restrictions we still need to put in place for them to happen safely.”

NFYFC will also be changing its YFC at Home programme as it moves towards the new membership year, while recognising that for the foreseeable future many club programmes will need to be a blended mix of online and group activity.
