Specsavers Surrey Youth Games

The Surrey Youth Games (SYG), sponsored by Specsavers, is the largest annual youth sports festival in Surrey and gives young people (aged 7 to 16 years) experience of a competitive, countywide sporting tournament.

2018 Games: Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 June at Surrey Sports Park and Woking Leisure Centre

Registration for the 2018 Specsavers Surrey Youth Games is now closed.

About the Games

The games are essentially a mini-Olympic event, where each of the eleven districts and boroughs in Surrey compete against each other in a variety of sports.

Children in the district get up to eight weeks free coaching in a range of different sports and then get selected to compete for Mole Valley.

Most of this year's action will take place on 'Super Sunday' at Surrey Sports Park. Girls Cricket and Football will take place on the Saturday, as well as Badminton and Senior Squash which will take place at Woking Leisure Centre (operated by Freedom Leisure in conjunction with Woking Borough Council).

2017 Games - scorching temperatures

Last year during the weekend of record temperatures, 220 sporting stars from Mole Valley were given the opportunity to experience SYG and were able to showcase their talents and teamwork against other children from all the different districts/boroughs in Surrey. 

Across the 19 teams Mole Valley entered into the games they did brilliantly and managed to accumulate 7 medals overall, doing the District extremely proud.
