Satellite Clubs are a £48.5 million investment from Sport England between now and March 2017. It is Sport England's vision that by 2017 every secondary school in England will be offered a satellite community sports club on its site.
Satellite Clubs are extensions or outposts of community sports clubs which are established in a new venue, usually a secondary school or college and specifically target the 11-25 age group. Their purpose is to grow the number of young people playing sport as well as reducing the number of young people dropping out.
Active Dorset is dedicated to providing satellite clubs across the county by linking NGBs to schools, colleges and community providers. We match the supply and demand to help ensure the needs of both the hub club and satellite clubs are met and do this by identifying suitable satellite host venues which also meets requirements of NBGs, schools and local clubs.
