The largest annual youth sports festival in the county, with more than 2,000 competitors taking part every year.
The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games (SSYG) is suitable for young people between the ages of six to 16 who are new to sport and want to develop skills and confidence.
The main aim of the games is to encourage young people to develop their sporting skills and promote physical activity and fair play in sport. In 2018 Runnymede had more than 250 registrations from young people who attended our training sessions. More than 130 of those participants were selected to represent Team Runnymede during the games weekend.
The registrations for SSYG are now open. Click here to register your child for the free training sessions.
Please note you must register for the games before attending the training sessions. If you have been placed on a waiting list you will receive a notification if a space becomes available.

Team Runnymede is looking for young ambassadors to represent Runnymede in the lead up to Specsavers Surrey Youth Games.
As a young ambassador you will be required to help promote the Surrey Youth Games training among friends and family, assist in school assemblies and encouraging new participants to sign up and take part in the training sessions.
The selected young ambassadors will be invited to an information evening in February and given all the tools needed. You will be rewarded with a young ambassador t-shirt and gift bag. Those taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh award can use this experience as approved voluntary hours. Young Ambassadors can be aged from seven to 16.
Applications have now closed. If you would like to know more about the scheme please email - email@example.com
