The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games is the largest annual youth sports festival in the county with more than 2,000 competitors taking part in the event every year. The Games are open to children and young people aged between 6 and 16 years old who live or go to school in the Borough. It is a great opportunity for them to try out a new sport or enhance their knowledge and ability in their favourite sport by receiving coaching, tactics and skills from local qualified coaches, all for FREE.
The attendees of the training sessions then have a chance to represent Epsom & Ewell against the 10 other boroughs and districts of Surrey in June at the Surrey Sports Park (SSP) in Guildford, Surrey. Team Epsom & Ewell had great success in 2019 securing 2 gold, 3 silver and 3 bronze medals, and we shouldn’t forget the 15 individual medals in judo! We hope to continue this success in the 2020 Games. To view the results from the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games 2019 please click here.
Specsaver Surrey Youth Games Young Ambassador Scheme 2020
We are looking for young people from Epsom & Ewell to be Young Ambassadors for the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games 2020. The main role of a Young Ambassador is to encourage as many people as possible to sign up for the Specsaver Surrey Youth Games. As a Young Ambassador you will help to promote the Specsaver Surrey Youth Games within your school by giving out flyers, talking in assemblies or creating posters. Working together with the Council’s Leisure Developments team, you will be helping to increase the awareness of the event as well as helping more young people find out about how they can take part in free training sessions. This then gives them the chance to represent Team Epsom and Ewell in the finals weekend!
