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





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

Our Get Ready for the Games Guide provides important details for all visitors to the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games 2021.  Please check back after Easter for the updated Guide.



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

This summary shows activities by age/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.

The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games event schedule will be uploaded in due course.

Event finish times are always approximate and subject to slight change due to number of participants and circumstances on the day.



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

The Surrey Sports Park is in Guildford, just off the A3 near the University of Surrey. Aside 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. 

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

If you're travelling by train to Guildford, you can take the bus (or walk) 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, including the winners of the prestigious Gerry Ceaser Fair Play Award.

You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook @ActiveSurrey and Instagram @activesurrey. If you post about the event yourself, please support us by using #SpecsaversSYG



I've got a question / last minute emergency

You should find the answer on this website, but if not, you can contact your local Team Organiser to ask them, or to report a child's absence on the day.



What else do I need to know?

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



Who funds the Games?

The Games are supported to varying degrees by the title sponsor - Specsavers, Active Surrey, local Borough & District Councils, Surrey County Council, 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 your company would like to do its bit for your community and would be interested in supporting an aspect of the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games, we'd love to hear from you - please contact us.



Where can I read the rules about my child’s event and how you'll use our data?

Our Privacy Notice and Ts&Cs (2020) is what you sign(ed) up to when you registered your child.



My child really enjoyed the Games, where can they continue participating?

Fantastic that your child has been inspired to carry on in their chosen activity. Visit our Keep Playing page to find out where and how they can keep active.
