About Satellite Club Funding

What is a Satellite Club?

  • An extension of a community sports club (hub club).
  • Held at a familiar site (such as school, college, youth centre or other community setting) to make the transition to the hub club much easier.

  • 14-19 year olds
  • Must focus on inactive participants

  • Satellite clubs can be in a range of sport or physical activities, from hockey to yoga.
  • Satellite clubs can be funded for up to 30 weeks initially and should become fully sustainable.
  • All satellite clubs should be open to the community, not just host site participants.
  • Clubs must be self sustaining e.g. participant income must be redirected back into the club
