Team Spelthorne is looking for young people aged 7-16 to participate in the annual P&G Surrey Youth Games. The P&G Surrey Youth Games is the largest annual youth festival with over 2000 young people experiencing a competitive, countywide sporting event.
The event is a great opportunity to try a new sport or improve existing skills.
The coaching sessions take place from April and there are fifteen sports on offer including hockey, cricket, judo, football, basketball, lacrosse, touch rugby, table tennis and boccia. Thanks to sponsorship from local organisations, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Everyone Active and Shepperton Studios, Spelthorne Council is offering the coaching sessions free of charge. Participants will then be selected from the coaching sessions to represent Team Spelthorne at the Games on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 June 2015 at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford.
Cllr Penny Forbes-Forsyth, Cabinet Member for community safety, young people, leisure and culture, said: “The Surrey Youth Games is the sporting highlight of the year for Spelthorne; it is a great opportunity for young people to experience different sports and make new friends. As the coaching sessions are free of charge, we hope that more people will use the opportunity to benefit from participation in sport.”
To be eligible for Team Spelthorne, you must either live or go to school in Spelthorne and if you already play a sport, you must be below county standard.
