The Satellite Club programme is a Sport England funded initiative which Wesport deliver locally. Satellite Clubs are local sport and physical activity clubs that are designed around the needs of young people and provide them with positive, enjoyable experiences that make it easy for them to become active or to develop more regular activity habits.
Satellite Clubs are extensions of community sports clubs and target young people aged 14 - 19 who are inactive. Wesport have some key focus groups which are detailed below.
Funding is limited to support a small number of projects across the West of England, this is an open pot of funding available to partners who can meet the programme requirements. This pot will remain open until March 2020, however this is dependent on the level of applications received throughout the year.
