One of London Sport’s longest running and most successful schemes at getting young people more active is back and we’re once again in need of your help.
We’re looking for individuals, groups or clubs interested in launching a Satellite Club to get more young people aged between 14 and 19 completing more physical activity and sport.
And the need for these clubs has never been greater with the latest Active Lives data from Sport England showing that 15 per cent of 16 to 24-year-olds across the country are classified as inactive.
London Sport’s Strategic Relationship Manager, Lorna Leach said:
“This is a fantastic opportunity for clubs and organisations to grow, to reach out and engage with new young people with fresh and exciting activities across London.
“Satellite Clubs have been hugely successful in the past in bringing teenagers into physical activity and sport and, most importantly, restarting habits which last a lifetime.
“I’m always excited to see the new and innovative ideas which are submitted to us when we invite groups and organisations to join our Satellite Club family.”
All applications which meet the criteria will be considered though additional weighting is given to those supporting women, deaf and disabled people and those that operate in deprived areas.
Deadline is November 30.
