Specsavers Surrey Youth Games

The Surrey Youth Games (SSYG), sponsored by Specsavers, is the largest multi-sport youth event in the county.

About the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games

  • children across the county get up to seven weeks free coaching in their chosen sport/s. 
  • coaching sessions take place at schools, clubs and leisure facilities across the borough. We organise the sessions in partnership with local clubs and sports centre coaches. The sessions start after the Easter holidays.
  • following the coaching sessions, there will be a chance to get chosen to compete for Team Guildford at the games weekend.
  • the games are spread over one weekend every year. The eleven Surrey districts and boroughs compete in different sports and activities
  • the aim of the free coaching is to get young people to try a sport 
  • the games weekend gives young people (aged 6 to 16 years) experience of a competitive, countywide sporting tournament
  • a child can only compete in a maximum of two sports on the weekend of the SSYG tournament (one on the Saturday and one on the Sunday). It's not possible to compete in two different sports on the same day of the games weekend
  • SSYG raises awareness of the borough's sports clubs and facilities
