The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games is the largest multi-sport youth event in the county. Spread over a single weekend every year it brings together 6-16 year olds (18 for disability sport boccia if still in KS4) from all Surrey's local authorities who have received up to 8 weeks' free training following registration by parents.
The 2019 Specsavers Surrey Youth Games will take place on 15 and 16 June at Surrey Sports Park, Guildford. If you're over 16 and would like to be part of the team that helps us delivers the Games, please register to find out about volunteering.
You can see some images and read the outcomes from the 2018 Games in the event's Impact Report.

The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games continue to grow and develop, especially with the valued support from our headline sponsors, Specsavers.
We welcomed the world-class facility, Surrey Sports Park as venue sponsor in 2013, and are delighted that they are hosting the Games again. See what Surrey Sports Park has to say about 2019:
"Surrey Sports Park is delighted to again support the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games which is a fantastic community event that encourages and inspires so many young people which we are very proud to be part of.
It also allows us to showcase our own facilities to a host of new people, many of whom join us to continue their sport and fitness journey which is so vital to not only physical wellbeing but also mental wellbeing and individual development.
It really is a fantastic occasion for both participants and spectators and we look forward to welcoming everyone to Surrey Sports Park again in the summer of 2019 for another fabulous event."
The overall goal of the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games is to provide young people across Surrey with opportunities to be active both during and after the Games - whatever their ability. The target outcomes are:
- Increased positive engagement of less advantaged young people
- More young people reporting a positive attitude towards sport and active lifestyle through participation
- Increase in sustained levels of physical activity in inactive young people
The sports and age groups in the Games reflect this aim, with each event targeting specific participants to engage.
The event is organised by Active Surrey, in association with each borough and district council in Surrey and a range of sport national governing bodies.
