Unfortunately this years Specsavers Surrey Youth Games have been cancelled due to current government guidelines in relation to COVID-19. There will be no local taster sessions running that have previously been advertised as part of this years games. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will be contacting all participants that have already registered to take part. 

If you are a young person that lives or goes to school in Surrey Heath then you are eligible to take part in 6-8 weeks of free taster sessions in no less than 12 different sports and physical activities! The sessions which are run by many of our local sports clubs are designed specifically for beginners and are the perfect way to try a new sport for the very first time. You can register by clicking the above link and following the instructions or you can take a look at the tasters on offer below. Our promotional flyer will be making its way to your school shortly so please keep an eye out for these too. 

Following the taster sessions, every young person has the chance to be selected to represent Team Surrey Heath at the largest youth sports festival in Surrey - check out the action from last year's games in the photos and video below!

Last year's Surrey Youth Games

Team Surrey Heath showed off their new skills at last year’s Specsavers Surrey Youth Games 2019 following 6 weeks of free taster sessions.

The highlight of the festival weekend was a flurry of medals on Sunday which launched Surrey Heath up to tied 5th position in the medal table and tied 4th in the prestigious Gerry Ceaser Fair Play Trophy. Medal winners included boxing, judo and netball teams but most importantly all of the teams were able to experience a high quality festival event designed purely for beginners.

More than 220 young people tried up to 11 different sports or activities as part of the scheme coordinated by SHBC, Active Surrey and local clubs.  

Beginners enjoyed between 6-8 weeks of free coaching sessions, culminating in the festival weekend at Surrey Sports Park, Guildford on 15-16 June. Many of the youngsters have now committed to continuing the activities.

Well done to all who took part, and huge thanks to our fantastic clubs and sponsors.
