Get more young people involved in your sport: set up a satellite club

Who can apply for funding?

Funding is available to pro-active clubs across Norfolk that have identified a school, college or local community site where they would like to set up an outpost / extension of their club in order to engage and recruit more young people aged 14 – 25 into their sport. Other organisations may also be able to apply in exceptional circumstances; the guiding principle is the Satellite Club delivery needs to have a clear and on-going link to a community hub club, which will lead to sustainable long term delivery. Clubs should target inactive / irregularly active young people.

What can be applied for?

Funding is available to help existing clubs establish and deliver new satellite clubs. The scheme has a degree of flexibility and funding can be used to cover costs for delivery, equipment, facility hire, marketing and coaching qualifications.

How much can clubs apply for?

Clubs can apply for £1,000-£3,000 per satellite club. In exceptional circumstances we may allocate additional funding i.e. where there is a strong evidence of demand or the sport being delivered has high setup costs.

A number of the National Governing Bodies of Sport have agreed Satellite Club targets with Sport England and have identified priority Satellite Clubs they wish to establish. In these circumstances Active Norfolk can provide complementary funding and we will be working alongside the National Governing Body of Sport to discuss where any funding can add value.
