Generate your feel-good factor & help your community

Every year parents, young adults and coaches volunteer to help make the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games happen. Whether you want to enjoy the buzz, develop your skills or 'give something back, 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 helpers
  • Meet & greet marshals
  • Business support
  • Video & photo production personnel - professional or skilled amateurs (with kit)

The Games take place on the 17 June 2023 but 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!
