Free training for 6-16 year olds

The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games is the largest multi-sport youth event in the county. Spread over a single weekend every year, this unique event brings together 6-16 year olds (18 for disability sports boccia and cage cricket if still in full time education) from all Surrey's boroughs and districts who have received up to 8 weeks' free local training.

After the cancellation of the 2020 event, the 2021 Games promise to be one of the most exciting yet with new activities to try. If you're looking to give your son or daughter a new interest, register to give them the chance to try out a sport or physical activity –  all for free.

If you’re new to the Games you can watch the short video below.

Why we run the Games

Building positive habits early in life is vital for children’s long term health and the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games exist to get the county’s young people to be active. The formal objectives are:

  1. More young people reporting a positive attitude towards sport and building an active lifestyle through participation
  2. Sustained increase in levels of physical activity amongst inactive young people
  3. Increased positive engagement of less advantaged young people

Who organises the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games?

The event is organised by Active Surrey, in association with each borough and district council in Surrey and a range of local and national sport governing bodies.

Due to coronavirus, the last Specsavers Surrey Youth Games took place in 2019. See how well it performed against its aims in the 2019 Impact Report (4MB). (Also available: plain text Games Impact Reports 2019.)
