Support for Clubs to link to Secondary Schools
Posted: Tue, 06 Jan 2015 09:39
Does your club want to link to local secondary schools?
Do you have qualified coaches that could deliver a regular club at a school or college?
We have start up grants available to get Satellite clubs off the ground.
Through the Sport England lottery funded Satellite Club programme, Northamptonshire Sport have helped with start up grants to get Satellite Clubs established. These grants have covered funding for coaching time, facility hire, equipment, kit, training for young people and in return clubs are:
- Increasing new members in their club
- Retaining members for longer
- Accessing new avenues to recruit volunteers and leaders
- Gaining a higher profile in the community – great for attracting partners and funders
Kettering Futsal Club launched a Futsal Satellite Club at Latimer School in Kettering and have 18 students age 14-16 regularly attending the weekly session. The students have formed a team which will play in tournaments against other schools and many of them are planning to join the Community Club in the near future.
We're looking for more good quality clubs to support so get in touch with Felicity Howlett to find out more on 01604 366215 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
