Active Gloucestershire Satellite Clubs 2017 - 2019 Funding Round now open

Aims of Satellite Clubs:


  • To support those aged 14-19 who are currently inactive to change their habits to become more active
  • Create regular habits for young people to be active at key drop off points in their lives
  • Develop clubs and experiences which are tailored to the young people’s needs and wants. Involving young people in the delivery of their club

The funding available for Satellite Clubs has no upper or lower limit, it is calculated on a cost per head and value for money basis. However the average cost will be in the £1500-2500 range across the whole two year period. The funding available can contribute towards coaching or delivery costs, venue hire, equipment purchase or hire and towards marketing or publicity.
