Due to the impact of covid-19, the regular Specsavers Surrey Youth Games has been replaced with a brand new Bike Project in the wards of Watchetts and St Michaels. The project, coordinated between community members and Surrey Heath Borough Council, has seen bikes donated to young people and families who find cost a barrier to being physically active.  
As well as bike donations from the Surrey Bike Project, bike servicing has also been offered to pupils from Kings International College and South Camberley Primary School, to help ensure their safety.  
Following the success of this initial project, the group hope to extend the scheme to accept used and unwanted bikes from the community so they can be rehomed to those that need them.  
Keep an eye on our social media for updates.

2019 Surrey Youth Games

Take a look at this video...

Team Surrey Heath showed off their new skills at the 2019 Specsavers Surrey Youth Games 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.
