What activities are on offer?

This year we have a selection of FREE activities to choose from that are LOCAL to you.

Remember, all the kids starting out will be beginners to the activity.

Here’s a quick introduction to the options on offer. Some might be familiar - others might not be! 


School Years 3 - 11

Boccia - pronouced 'Bot-cha' - is a fast-growing, paralympic sport. It’s a fun game of strategy and accuracy, played indoors on a court similar in size to a badminton court. Participants throw, kick or use a ramp to propel a ball with the aim of getting closest to a 'jack' ball. Players can compete as an individual, in pairs, or as a team of three.  


School Years 3 - 6

Unleash your inner rhythm and discover new moves! An amazing way to get fit and improve balance and agility. Dance is also great way to be part of a new crew and to lift your mood. 

By the way, the dance offerings across the county will vary - click to the booking form to discover what’s on near YOU this spring. 

Girls Touch Rugby

School Years 5 - 8

One of the fastest growing sports in the world – this is rugby without the tackles! A game of evasion, quick passing, and touch tackling - it centres on having fun and making new friends. A great team sport which is non-contact, it’s easy to learn and play and has a place for everyone whatever your sporting background. Come give it a try, you won’t regret it!


Aged between 8 and 12 on the 15th June 2024

Judo is a modern Japanese martial art and incredibly popular Olympic sport. Beginners will learn throws, groundwork and learning to fall safely – it’s also a great workout, which benefits lots of other sports! The word Judo means ‘the gentle way’ and it teaches self-respect, self-control and discipline in a fun and safe environment. 

Row, Bike, Run Challenge

School Years 7 - 11

A great way to dip your toe into cross training – you get to mix it up with cycling, running and rowing! This is a triathlon you can do without a pool, but which comes with all the fun of doing different forms of exercise. The focus here is very much on variety of activities and getting into the spirit of the ‘race’. 

Street Basketball

School Years 7 - 8

Street basketball is an increasingly popular version of the sport, but it has a more easy-going approach to the conventional rules of basketball. 

Typically played on outdoor courts, two teams of 5 players each try to score by shooting a ball through a hoop 10 feet above the ground. It was born in the parks and streets of New York and is lots of fun.  

Swim Confidence

School Years 4 - 6

Learn to swim! These classes will teach fundamental water skills. Designed to build confidence in those who may need additional support swimming and particularly relevant to children who may not have had a chance to become water-confident, or those with additional needs.

Please note, this is referral only. Speak to your school or Borough / District Organiser if you feel your child would be eligible.


School Year 3

Tennis is a great workout and fantastic for coordination and agility, aswell as developing strategic skills. It's also a handy sport to play socially as you only need one other player! 

In the training, you'll learn the fundamental skills to help your enjoyment of this sport long after the games have finished! 


Through the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games, we’re committed to fostering an inclusive and accessible environment for all children.

Our range of activities is designed to ensure that every child, regardless of their abilities, can participate in a welcoming and supportive setting.

If participants or their families have additional needs they’d like to discuss, please speak to your Borough or District organiser to ensure the right support is in place. You can get in touch here.

Games Day 15th June 2024

Save the date!

After training, we’re holding a big celebratory event in Guildford. All the participants can come together to show parents and carers what they've achieved. 

This family-friendly event will be held at the Surrey Sports Park on Saturday 15th June. There’ll be a family fun festival with a host of free activities to keep the kids active and entertained.

There’s no obligation to attend if you’d like your children to take up the free training offer – but we know from experience that it’s an AWESOME day out. 😊


Join the team and make it happen!

Games Day would not be possible without the support of amazing volunteers; giving their time, learning new skills and being part of something bigger!
