Welcome to the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games 2023

Active Surrey is proud to present the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games at the Surrey Sports Park on Sat 17 June.We hope your family has a fantastic day, cheering on your child and their teammates as they use the new skills they've picked up over the last few weeks at local training.

On this page you'll find everything you need for a great day at the Games, including details of extra free activities at the Family Zone.

Most importantly, please register at your child's activity with your team manager in plenty of time before their event - see the timetable below.

We hope your son or daughter enjoys their day. We wish them luck as they help their area squad compete for the Gerry Ceaser Spirit of the Games Award and hope they continue with their new activity habit once today is over.

REMEMBER: be sunsafe and carry a refillable water bottle.

Please follow the directions of the parking marshals who are there to help you.  Please note the car park is LOCKED at 7pm and all cars must be removed.

Blue badge holders can park by the main building but need to log their car registration at reception to avoid a penalty ticket.

What to wear - participants

If your child's activity is outside (see map above) come prepared for the weather: don’t forget your sun cream and sun hat / raincoat and jumper! 🙂

Participants should wear their squad's borough / district t-shirt. For safety reasons, participants must not wear jewellery and long hair must be tied back.

Judo: All participants must hold, and produce at the event, a valid and current British Judo Association Junior Licence, British Judo Council Licence or Amateur Judo Association Licence. You can buy a 12 month pathway membership from https://www.bjadojo.co.uk/auth/login. Only participants with licenses with start dates after 1 April 2023 are eligible. There will be no facility to purchase a licence on the day of the event and failure to produce one will make the participant ineligible to take part, for their own safety.

Clean white judogis, which comply with IJF/BJA regulations, must be worn by each participant. Your Borough/District coloured T-shirts should be worn underneath, instead of the normal white t-shirt.

Boccia, Boxing, Dance & Go Tri: Non marking shoes

Rugby: Normal or astro trainers. No studs.

Street Basketball: Appropriate footwear (this activity will be outside)

Tennis: If you are bringing your own tennis racquet it must be 21-23 inches (mini tennis racquet). Participants will not be allowed to play with racquets exceeding 23 inches.

Swimming: Appropriate swimwear, spare t-shirt and a towel. No outdoor footwear is to be worn on poolside. If swimmers require any additional buoyance aids, other than a woggle, they will need to provide their own.


Your borough and district squad officer

If your son or daughter falls ill on Games day or you have some other emergency please contact your squad organiser by phone to let them know, so they can advise their teamates and the activity organiser.

Photos & videos - main points

Safeguarding is a serious concern at the Games. No-one wants other people taking shots of their child, so please respect others' privacy and follow the points below:

  • Only take photos of your own son or daughter unless you have sought permission for other children in the shot.
  • No photography allowed anywhere in pool or in judo hall (except for official photographers).
  • Never photograph anyone wearing a yellow wristband (shoe/ankle band in basketball and rugby). 
  • Don't share any extra info alongside an image when posting online, such as a name.
  • To help protect children we reserve the right to challenge anyone taking photos and encourage you to politely do the same


Summary codes of conduct


Lead the players in respecting teammates, opponents, officials and supporters.  Encourage fair play.  Take responsibility for the young people in your care until they have safely left the event.


Play for fun.  Do your best and support your teammates.  Wear the right kit, play by the rules and respect officials‘ decisions, as well as your opponents.  Be a good sport by winning or losing with dignity. Tell your coach if you need to leave the event early. Thank officials, coaches and your opponents.

Parents and spectators

Ensure your child plays for their fun, not anybody else’s.  Teach respect for opponents and the officials’ decisions, particularly younger volunteer officials who may still be training.  Promote fairness and please applaud all good play, whichever team is involved.  Be positive about your child’s performance and don't be negative about others. Never use bad language. Smile, and enjoy watching your child fulfill their potential.

The Activity Organiser who is in charge of matches / games has the power to stop the event to deal with offending competitors or spectators.  This could include removal of the offender(s), forfeit of matches, disqualification or, in severe cases, reporting to the police.


Safeguarding & accidents

Please note the photography policy above - in particular do not take a photo of any child with a yellow wrist/ shoeband.

Safeguarding is everyone's issue where children are concerned. Report any concerns over a child you feel may be at risk to a member of the Event Staff (in Active Surrey orange polo shirts, usually marked ‘Event Staff’,) or contact Active Surrey’s Safeguarding Officer, Wendy Newton , directly on 07972 211989.

Accidents requiring attention should be reported to any Official (in any orange shirt) who can call a trained first aider if required.

Soft archery

Football skills



Martial arts


Circus skills

Arts & crafts

...and much more
