Parent Information for the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games

What do you need to know about the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games?

 

Is there a handy document that contains the main info I need for the weekend?

You're in luck - our Get Ready for the Games guide has the most important details for all visitors to the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games 2019. 

 

What time does my child's sport take place? And what are the restrictions?

This summary shows sports on offer by ages/gender. All participants must be new to their sport and not club members - any other sport-specific restrictions can be found in the rules which you can access upon registration. Please be aware that if your child is selected to take part in the Games weekend, they can only take part in one event per day.

See the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games event schedule. Please note end times are approximate.

How do we get to the Games? And where can we park?

The Surrey Sports Park is in Guildford and lies the other side of the A3 from the University of Surrey. Apart from blue badge holders (who must register at reception), there is NO PARKING at the Sports Park, enforced by licence plate recognition cameras.

Instead, our friends at Arriva buses are running a free Park and Ride service from the main university campus. Buses will run every 10 mins from 7.50am to 6pm. 

Postcode for the University Park and Ride is GU2 7JP. The journey takes less than 5 minutes.

If you're travelling by train to Guildford, other buses run to the Surrey Sports Park.

How can I find out the results from the Games?

Full results will be available on our Rules and Results page AFTER the weekend, along with details of the borough winners of the prestigious Gerry Ceaser Fair Play Award.

You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook @ActiveSurrey - we'll try and post results as we receive them but please bear with us as it can get a bit hectic on the day...  If you post about the event yourself, please support us by using #SpecsaversSYG

 

I've got a question / a last minute emergency

Take a look at our FAQs to see if they have the answer, if not, you can contact your local Borough Team Organiser to ask them, or to report a child's absence on the day.

 

What else do I need to know about?

Please take a moment to look at the Photography Policy before you take any photos and the Codes of Conduct that parents/spectators, players & coaches are expected to follow.

We are partnering with the Surrey Sports Fund to improve access to sport for disabled people and those from disadvantaged backgrounds in the county. If you'd like to thank someone for the Games, please thank one of our volunteers in an official orange T shirt or email us at active.surrey@surreycc.gov.uk - and then donate to this worthwhile cause at  http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fund/surreysports

 

Who funds the Games?

No other county still runs a free event like the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games. The Games are supported by Active Surrey, local Borough & District Councils, Surrey County Council, the title sponsor Specsavers, venue sponsor Surrey Sports Park, and transport provider Arriva.

We'd like to keep the Games free for future generations, but it gets harder every year. If an organisation you work for would be interested in supporting an aspect of the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games, we'd love to hear from you - please contact us.
