Satellite Clubs are extensions of community sports clubs which can offer a different sporting experience for young people aged 11-25 years. Different because they bring sport out to young people in very local venues and different also because they may attract young people who are not typically interested in Sport.
Satellites are run by established sports clubs who bring their expertise and enthusiasm to local places where young people already meet. Together they create a satellite that offers sport in the way that these young people want to receive it.
See video below for information on Satellite Clubs and to see an example.
CSW Sport Satellite Club Delivery Fund
What can be applied for?
Funding is available to help establish and deliver new Satellite Clubs in Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire. The scheme is flexible and organisations can apply for funds to meet a range of costs such as equipment, coaching qualifications and facility hire. For a list of what we are not able to fund please refer to the CSW Sport Satellite Clubs Delivery Fund FAQ (available shortly).
CSW Sport will prioritise applications which will lead to sustainable Satellite clubs that will provide sport in a format and, at a venue that young people show demand for. We will also encourage applications that target under-represented groups within sport such as females, black and minority ethnic groups and disabled young people.
Who can apply for funding?
Sports clubs can apply for funding, however 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 delivery.
How much can clubs apply for?
Organisations can apply for £1,000-£3,000 per satellite club over 3 years. In exceptional circumstances CSW Sport may allocate additional funding where there is a strong evidence of need or demand.
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 CSW Sport can provide complementary funding and we will be working alongside the National Governing Body of Sport to discuss where any funding can add value.
