Would love to see meetups/races/social rides for younger Zwifters ie U16.
Welcome to the Zwift Forums!
Zwift currently doesn’t offer junior only events in game simply due to concerns around the security and privacy of our junior riders. Since we’re currently unable to ensure these events would be kids only, we refrain from scheduling them for the time being.
However, this doesn’t mean we’re not working on other options! We’ve brainstormed ideas on how we could make the events secure, and our team has been working on various projects that we will likely be able to utilize for this purpose. Essentially, we’re working on it, but it will take some time to implement.
In the meantime, I would suggest visiting the Junior Riders Facebook page. It’s a private group run by the guardians of junior Zwifters where you can discuss and coordinate rides/runs. This is made easier by using the Meet ups feature available in the Zwift Companion (ZC) app. It’s not ideal, but allows for guardian control/supervision, and ensures a safe ride for our juniors.
Hope this helps clear up some questions and allows you some options in the interim
