Satellite clubs are local sport and physical activity clubs designed to support young people aged 14-19 to develop more regular activity habits.
Supported by an established community sports club or physical activity opportunity, satellite clubs are set up at venues which are convenient for young people or where they already meet. Activities should be designed to respond to the specific demands from young people and should be positioned to support young people to change their behaviour to become more active.
Thanks to Sport England National Lottery funding, Active Surrey have start up funding available to establish new satellites but there needs to be a plan in place for the sessions to become self-sustaining. Please contact James Lovell if you are interested in creating a satellite.
New satellite clubs will be expected to utilise the Sport England Youth Insight Pack which offers national insight into young people's behaviour.
