Satellite Clubs

Creating opportunities to move for inactive young people

The Satellite club programme was a Sport England funded programme which started in 2013. Leap commissioned local partners and organisations to set up local sport and physical activity sessions to provide inactive young people with a positive and enjoyable experience. They were designed around the needs of young people, making it easy to develop and keep regular activity habits. They provided a link between a community activity provider and an education establishment or youth organisation by creating relevant, appealing and convenient sessions.

This initiative has now come to a natural end as a national programme for Sport England however the legacy of the work over the last 8 years still lives on in Bucks and MK with over 50 sessions still running for inactive young people.

To find out more about the impact of the satellite club programme and the successes we had in the County, see our Project reflection report.
