Satellite Club Funding
on behalf of 

Core Principles

– New Satellite Club delivery must be focused on young people aged 14-19

– A Satellite Club should deliver one session a week for 30 weeks

– Satellite Clubs should be targeted at helping these young people become active or build regular activity habits and/or targeting under-represented groups in sport. These include, but are not limited to females, young people with disabilities and those from lower socio-economic groups

– Activity provided through Satellite Clubs should be aligned to achieving the Chief Medical Officer’s recommendation of delivering moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity

– Positioned to be able to support young people at points of disruption in their lives

– Designed to get young people active and create regular activity habits

– Be young people (customer) led including involving young people in decisions and design

– Be linked to or developed into a regular sport and/or physical activity opportunity

– Be self-sustainable and continue delivery beyond the funding period

Youth Personalities Training / Toolkit


Those delivering will be required to complete online training on youth personalities. It should only take around 10 minutes, and will give you a quick understanding about the personalities. If you click here to access the training, the key to register is ‘s8’. Once completed London Sport are then asking for organisations delivering to complete the Youth Personalities toolkit. To do this, you will need participants and the coach to do a survey (they could either do the survey or they could enter their answers straight onto the toolkit attached). They fully appreciate this will seem like more admin, but if you do this it will give you a deeper understanding of who is attending your sessions. You can then tailor sessions to suit. There are instructions on completing the toolkit.
