Surrey Youth Games

The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games is the largest multi-sport youth programme of its kind in the South East, offering free local training for 7 to 16 year olds, leading to a final celebratory event for the whole family. 

The Games are for beginners who may not get the chance to attend clubs, or are inactive and put off by the thought of competing against others. The focus is on joining in, having a go and having fun, in order to learn new skills and boost confidence. 

Free training in Elmbridge starts after the Easter school holiday, with all teams coming together for a family-friendly event at the Surrey Sports Park in Guildford on Saturday 17 June 2023.
