Satellite Sports Clubs

Sport England through Active Cumbria has established a new network of Satellite Sports Clubs in every Secondary and F.E College in Cumbria over the last three years.

Satellite Sports Clubs are extensions of community sports clubs, that specifically targeted inactive young people aged 14 to 19 from the three underepresented groups in sport/physical activity  (Women/girls, low social econmic, people with disabilities). The aim of the satellite sports club progrrame is to make it easier for young people to remain active, or indeed to start playing sport for the first time at a setting local to them providing sport/physical activity in a format that has been shaped by the young people through consultation . Providing a stepping stone for young people to access local community clubs helping to make participating in sport a lifelong habit.

Over the next two years Active Cumbria will be working with local youth providers, secondary schools, colleges, third sector organistions and well established high quality sports clubs, to create a sustainable network of satellite sports clubs across Cumbria to engage inactive young people.
