Satellite clubs can help bridge the gap between school, college and community sport – and provide new opportunities for young people to get active. This programme is designed to be young person lead and developed in partnership with the group you are working with! 

Wesport co-ordinate the Satellite Club programme for the West of England and are pleased to announce funding for NEW satellite clubs to be established in 2018 – 19. There are some key priorities which must be met, these include working with:

  • Young people aged 14 – 19
  • Female only focussed delivery
  •  Young people from lower socio economic groups
  • Young people with disabilities

Funding is available for 2 years’ worth of delivery with the maximum available for clubs set at around £3,000. Clubs should deliver a minimum of 20 weeks of activity per year for at least an hours session and be able to demonstrate appropriate minimum standards including:

  • Level 2 coaching qualification
  • Safeguarding protecting children certificate
  • Public Liability Insurance
  • Current and up to date DBS
