Surrey Youth Games

Service update: The 2020 Surrey Youth Games and pre-games training sessions have been cancelled due to Government guidance on Coronavirus.

The games and training sessions will return in 2021.

From April to June 2020, free sports coaching is available across Woking for children and young people aged six to 16 as part of the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games 2020. Sports this year include badminton, boccia, boxing, basketball, go tri gym challenge, obstacle challenge, football (girls only), hockey, judo, swimming (referral only), bee netball (girls only), netball under 12s (girls only), table tennis, squash, cage cricket and tennis.

Coaching sessions will take place at schools, clubs and leisure facilities across the borough, organised by Woking Borough Council in partnership with local club and sports centre coaches after the Easter holidays.

Each session will be led by a qualified coach and take place after school or at the weekend. They are targeted at beginners or those who want to get better at a sport they are currently involved with. Sessions will be offered for each sport to give children and young people the chance to develop their skills.

The aim of the free coaching is to encourage participation among young people and nurture their interest in sport. It also provides an introduction to sporting disciplines they might not have access to at school, as well as raising awareness of the borough's sports clubs and facilities.

The free coaching sessions are open to children and young people aged six to 16*, who live or go to school in the borough. Participants who compete at county standard or above need to pick an alternative sport to benefit from the free coaching.

* Boccia is open to participants aged between seven and 18 in full-time key stage 4 education.
