Sport Hampshire & IOW Satellite Clubs Forum

Would you like to find out more about Satellite Clubs and how it could work within your club?

The Satellite Clubs initiative aims to assist community sports clubs to increase participation amongst the 11-25 year olds by facilitating direct contact with secondary schools and sixth form colleges whose pupils have expressed an interest in attending an ‘out of school hours’ community sports club. The Satellite club will be delivered by the community sports club to ensure quality of and safety in delivery and enjoyment of participating. Delivery funding is available to pump prime the Satellite Club which could be used for purchasing of mats & venue hire for example.

Key criteria for eligibility include:

·         Delivered by a community sports club

·         Needs to be a sustainable and continued club offer

·         Aimed at 11-25 year olds

·         Based at a secondary school or sixth form college site.

Hampshire & IOW are about to enter Year 2 of this initiative, the first of two application windows will be open from 1 April – 30 May 2014, this applies to all clubs with start dates throughout 2014-15.
