Generate your feel-good factor by helping your local community

Every year parents, young people and coaches volunteer to help make the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games happen. Whether you want to enjoy the buzz, make friends or develop your skills, we have an opportunity for you!

You don't have to be 'sporty' to get involved either - alongside roles in things like umpiring and scoring we also need:

  • Event crew
  • Meet & greet marshals
  • Business support
  • Video & photo production personnel - professional or skilled amateurs (with kit)

 

With the Games weekend on 19/20 June 2021 we also have volunteering / work experience opportunities in the days leading up to the event for anyone aged 16+.

You will be thoroughly briefed on your role before the day, and who knows, based on previous years you may even end up alongside a future Olympic medal winner!
