What are Satellite Clubs?
Satellite clubs are local sport and physical activity clubs that are designed around the needs of inactive young people (14-19yrs) and provide them with positive, enjoyable experiences that make it easy for them to become active or to develop more regular activity habits.
Supported by or linked to a local community sports club or physical activity opportunity (The Hub), satellite clubs should be designed in such a way that they respond to the demands for sport from young people.
Satellite clubs should also be designed to help shape the way in which existing sport and physical activity providers tailor their offer to meet the different motivations and needs of young people, particularly those who are less active or at risk of falling out of sport.
Understanding what is important to young people and what their needs and wishes are is the first step when developing a satellite club opportunity. Satellite clubs should then be designed to meet those needs and provide a positive fun experience, giving young people the confidence to take part.
