satellite clubs

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 who are inactive. Wesport have some key focus groups and areas to support as part of our 5th year of Satellite Club delivery.
