If you have secured a place at a county final event either through qualification or by entering a stand alone event through your School Games Organiser, CONGRATULATIONS. We hope you have a fantastic and memorable day. Look out for your offical County Invite that you will receive via email from your School Games Organiser.
1. Remind yourself of the Event Details
Take a look at the Briefing Sheet for your chosen event. This includes information about the event such as; squad sizes, eligible players, venue, time, rules and contact details.
2. Selecting your team
Representing your school in the School Games is an honour which we ask that you share as widely as possible amongst your young people by varying the children you select for your sports teams.
Before the event, please complete and return the team registration sheet to the event lead.
3. Safeguarding your children
Active Surrey has a rigorous approach to safeguarding at our School Games events and request that you read our welfare plan in advance of the competition. As part of our safeguarding measures, please read our Photography Policy and pass on to parents. A copy of our event Risk Assessment and Public Liability Insurance can also be made available by request.
4. Promoting the School Games Values
Promoting the values of the School Games is a key element of every School Games competition. Participants, teachers, spectators, leaders and officials are all asked to adhere to these values. All participants will be given the opportunity to nominate schools to best display these values to win the Surrey School Games Values Award.
5. Attending a Festival
Attending a School Games Festival is a very special and memorable event for your young people. In Surrey we deliver a Spring and a Summer Festival.
The Spring Festival had a most spectacular Opening Ceremony to reflect the theme of the Goldcoast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
This year the Summer Festival includes a ClubZone for all participants to have a go at a range of new and exciting sports and clubs.
For more information on the Summer Festival, download the handbook. For those who are not attending the ClubZone, please arrive in plenty of time ready to start your competition promptly.
