In preparation for the P&G Surrey Youth Games in June, Waverley Borough Council will hold free coaching sessions for young people, starting at the end of April.
The sessions, which last between six and eight weeks, give young people between 7 and 16 years, the opportunity to try a new sport or enhance their skills in one they already know.
There is a wide variety of sports on offer including; badminton, basketball, boccia, girls’ cricket, girls’ football, hockey, judo, lacrosse, netball, squash, swimming, table tennis, girls’ tag-rugby and tennis.
The sessions will be run by qualified coaches, the majority of whom have direct links with local clubs’ junior sections, offering scope for youngsters who attend to get involved with a club on a longer term basis.
Towards the end of the coaching sessions, teams will be chosen to compete at the P&G Surrey Youth Games on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 June at the Surrey Sports Park in Guildford.
To be eligible young people must either live or go to school in Waverley Borough and, if they already play a sport, must be below County Standard. To register, and for full details of the coaching sessions and eligibility criteria, visit www.waverley.gov.uk/syg .
