Satellite Clubs is a Sport England funded programme that ran from 2013 to date. These clubs can bridge the gaps between school, college and community sport and provide new opportunities for young people to create lifelong sporting habits.
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.
Satellite Clubs in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough
By 2017, every secondary school in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough will have been offered a satellite community sports club on its site. Satellite clubs may also be established in colleges, or other relevant education or community settings, depending on local need. These clubs have grown the number of 11-25 year olds taking part in sport for at least 30 minutes every week across the County, as well as reducing the number of young people dropping out of sport.
