From April to June, free sports coaching is available across Woking for children and young people aged six to 16 as part of the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games 2019. Sports this year include badminton, boccia, boxing, couch to 2K, football (girls only), hockey, judo, lacrosse, hi-5 netball (girls only), netball (girls only), table tennis, squash, and tennis.

Coaching sessions will take place at schools, clubs and leisure facilities across the Borough, organised by Woking Borough Council in conjunction with local club and sports centre coaches after the Easter holidays.

Each session will be led by a qualified coach and take place after school or at the weekend. They are targeted at beginners or those who want to get better at a sport they are currently involved with. Sessions will be offered for each sport to give children and young people the chance to develop their skills.

The aim of the free coaching is to encourage participation among young people and nurture their interest in sport. It also provides an introduction to sporting disciplines they might not have access to at school, as well as raising awareness of the borough's sports clubs and facilities.

The free coaching sessions are open to children and young people aged six to 16*, who live or go to school in the borough. Participants who compete at county standard or above need to pick an alternative sport to benefit from the free coaching.

* Seven to 18 disability sport of boccia is full-time, key stage 4 education.
