expanding your clubs offer in the city

Sport England have put together a toolkit which is packed with ideas and free resources to help you run satellite sports clubs for young people in the community.

Satellite clubs are extensions of community sports clubs and provide something different for that sporting community because they bring sport to young people in local venues as opposed to people coming to the club where they otherwise would not travel. The benefit of satellite clubs is that they may attract young people who are not typically very sporty.

Further information about satellite clubs and how to become one.

Satellites are run by established sports clubs who bring their expertise and enthusiasm to local places where young people already meet. Together they create a satellite that offers sport in the way that these young people want to receive it.

A satellite club can be seen as a stepping-stone between taking part in school sport and joining a sports club. The aim of a Satellite is to enable a young person to move from school sport to the satellite and then into the main club.

As a club, developing a satellite club would benefit you if:

  • Your club has no capacity to take on new members or has no junior section
  • The young person does not yet meet the playing standards required by your club
  • The young person is unsure if they want to commit to a full club membership
