Satellite clubs

Satellite clubs have helped thousands of young people get active and our support to the programme will continue under Sport England’s strategy Towards an Active Nation.

Satellite clubs can help bridge the gap between school, college and community sport – and provide new opportunities for young people to get active.

Satellite clubs make it easier for young people to get active – and stay active. They provide opportunities to take part regularly in sport and activity through the creation of enjoyable, appealing and convenient opportunities for young people that are based around their needs.

Supported by or linked to a local community sports club or physical activity opportunity, satellite clubs should be designed in such a way that they respond to the specific demands for sport from young people. They should be positioned to support young people at points of disruption in their lives.

Yorkshire Sport Foundation is focusing on increasing participation in under-represented groups, including females, disabled young people, and young people from one of our focus communities.
