Free coaching on offer ahead of Surrey Youth Games

Hockey at the 2019 Surrey Youth Games

 

Young people aged 6-18 who live or go to school in the borough of Reigate & Banstead are being offered free coaching as part of the 2020 Surrey Youth Games.

Participants will receive eight weeks of free coaching in a sport of their choice, before having the opportunity to compete against other borough’s squads in the Surrey-wide competition this June.

Sports on offer include judo, hockey, squash and many more.

Cage cricket, street basketball and the Go Tri challenge are among sports new for this year.

Reigate & Banstead Borough Council’s executive member for wellbeing & intervention, Cllr Alex Horwood, said: “The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games is always a fantastic event each year.

“With eight weeks of free training on offer, it’s a great opportunity for young people to try out a sport they may never have done before.

“Take a look at what’s available and encourage your children and their friends to take part.”

The council is inviting children to take part regardless of whether they already take part in sports or are looking for a new hobby.

Training sessions are tailored to complete beginners, and start from 21 April with the competition taking place 13 – 14 June.

All the training takes place outside of school hours and at various locations across the borough.

More details of sports on offer, training details and how to register, are on a Reigate & Banstead webpage.
