 Specsavers Surrey Youth Games

The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games (SSYGs) is aimed at children new to sports or those who have little opportunity to try a different sport. Children who sign up for the SSYGs get up to eight weeks of free coaching to provided in each of the 12 sports, which is the perfect platform for young people who are currently inactive or do not participate in sport to get involved. At the end of the eight weeks, a set number of children will get selected to represent their borough in a competition held at the elite facilities at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford.

Runnymede Borough Council currently funds coaches to run free coaching sessions to children before they are selected for any team. The council also funds the venue hire fee and as well as equipment that needs replacing year or year. In these challenging times for local authority finances, support to help continue this scheme would be very welcome.

If you or your organisation would like to support this scheme, please contact contact@businessrunnymede.com.
