Children and young people from across the Borough will have their chance to win gold later this year at the P&G Surrey Youth Games. But before the Games can begin, Team Woking is looking for athletes to register for their training programme, starting in April, for young people who either live, or go to school in the Borough.
There are over 25 events from 14 sports that include badminton, basketball, boccia, girl's cricket, girls' football, disability football, hockey, judo, lacrosse, netball, rugby, squash, swimming and tennis, to choose from. It is a great opportunity to have a go at a new sport or improve your skills in your favourite sport by receiving coaching and tactics from qualified coaches…and it's all free!
Age categories and eligibility vary from sport to sport but there are opportunities for both boys and girls of all abilities to participate. Woking encourages everybody, whatever your previous experience, to have a go.
The young sports stars, chosen from the training sessions, will then go on to represent Woking at the P&G Surrey Youth Games, held at the fantastic Surrey Sports Park on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 June 2013, competing against teams from across Surrey, in what promises to be an exciting weekend of sport.
The P&G Surrey Youth Games, sponsored by Procter & Gamble (P&G), is an exciting Olympic-style event which is the largest sporting competition for young people in Surrey. It enables over 3,500 young people aged between 7 - 15 years old to take part in a range of sports at a competitive level, representing Woking against teams from the other 10 boroughs and districts of Surrey.
Young people interested in taking part can pick up a leaflet from their school, Woking Leisure Centre and Pool in the Park, or visit www.woking.gov.uk/syg2013. You can also follow us on Twitter by searching @WokingSportsDev or join our Facebook group at `SYG Team Woking' to be kept up to date with the latest training information.
