Parent Information for the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games

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


Who are the Games for?

The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games are for beginners aged 6-16 (7-18 for certain players in boccia) who want to get active, have fun and try something new. After registration, participants receive free, quality coaching and have the chance to represent their local authority in an exciting, Olympic-style Games weekend.


What sports can we choose? 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.

How can I register my child?

Registration opens late February - just go to your local Borough or District Council's website where you'll find details of training opportunities for the sports in your area. If you can't find what you're looking for, contact your local Borough Team Organiser.


I've got a question

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 about registration, training and competition selection.


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.


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.
