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 easier for them to become active or to develop more regular activity habits. 

The focus of Satellite Clubs is on the 14-19 year age group, a critical time when many young people stop playing sport.

Satellite Clubs will be designed to respond to the specific demands for sport from young people and positioned to support them at points of disruption in their lives. They will be tailored to meet the different motivations and needs of young people particularly those who are less active or at risk of falling out of sport. 

Understanding what is important to young people and what their needs and wishes are is the first step to developing a satellite club opportunity.
