Getting started with satellite clubs

Satellite clubs are a Sport England-led initiative that make it easier for young people to get active AND stay active. They offer opportunities to take part regularly in sport and physical activity through the creation of enjoyable, appealing and convenient options for young people that are based around their needs.

MSP offer tailored support to help get satellite clubs off the ground here in the Liverpool City Region.  We can work with you to create a bespoke package for 14-19 year olds. This will facilitate an initial 12 weeks of young person-led activity with the aim of creating sustainable, life-long opportunities to engage in sport and physical activity in the local community. We’re able to pump in prime activity which has strong roots in communities and has the foundations for being sustained or which accesses sustainable pathways.

If you’ve identified a need for a club in your community then get in touch and we’ll be there to help build on your enthusiasm and ideas.


How to market your satellite club to the right audience

Research from Sport England suggests that groups of young people take part in sport for different reasons. Some take part in sport to keep fit, even if they don’t really enjoy it. Others take part to spend time with their friends.

These different reasons mean you may need to re-think the way you communicate with young people. We have produced a guidance document and accompanying promotional material to help you effectively communicate to your audience.
