Do you know a child or young person who would benefit from trying a new activity in a beginner-friendly environment? The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games are back for 2019 and are offering free training sessions at local clubs and facilities!
In conjunction with the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games, Surrey Heath Borough Council are offering free training sessions in no less than 10 unique sports from April to June. You can chose anything from Boccia (a pan disability sport), boxing, table tennis, couch to 2k, netball and many more!
Sessions are hosted at local schools, clubs and leisure facilities across the borough either after school or at the weekend and are led by qualified and passionate coaches.
These ‘taster’ sessions could open the door to a lifelong love of getting active while providing a fantastic chance to meet new people and make new friends. All sessions are aimed at complete beginners with the aim of providing the perfect environment to try a new activity and have fun in the process!
Following training sessions, every young person who takes part gets the opportunity to represent ‘Team Surrey Heath’ at the festival weekend at the Surrey Sports Park coordinated by Active Surrey. The event takes place on the 15th and 16th June and provides a unique Olympic style event where all 11 boroughs and districts in Surrey come together to show off their skills. Last year over 2000 young people took part in the largest youth festival of sport in Surrey!
Results from a fantastic 2018 Surrey Youth Games
In 2018, the team put on a tremendous show of sporting skills and fair play at the Surrey Sports Park.
The highlights of the weekend included an inspired bronze performance from the judo team in addition to medals in Netball ‘High 5’, Boccia U18s and girls' touch rugby.
The moment of the weekend came when the 11 Surrey boroughs and districts, along with officials and volunteers, voted Team Surrey Heath the Fair Play Trophy champions for the second year running, thanks to their outstanding sportsmanship.
Well done to all who took part, and huge thanks to our fantastic clubs and sponsors.
