Satellite Clubs

Creating opportunities to move for inactive 14- 19 year olds

Satellite clubs are local sport and physical activity sessions which provide inactive young people with a positive and enjoyable experience. They are designed around the needs of young people, making it easy to develop and keep regular activity habits. 

They provide a link between a community activity provider and an education establishment or youth organisation by creating relevant, appealing and convenient sessions.
