About Satellite Clubs
Satellite Clubs are a Sport England funded-project focused on local physical activity and sport clubs designed around the needs of young people.
How do they work?
Clubs are focused on supporting an increase in the number of 14-19-year olds participating regularly in physical activity and sport and are designed to reflect the likes and needs of teenagers and young adults in the local community.
Supported by or linked to a local sports club or physical activity opportunity (The Hub), satellite clubs are designed so that they respond to the specific demands for physical activity and sport from young people.
Satellite clubs should be designed to meet the needs of young people and provide a positive fun experience, giving young people the confidence to take part.
