Satellite Clubs

 

 Satellite Clubs

Energize have been successful in gaining satellite club funding from September 2017 – April 2019.

 

Energize are looking to work with young people (aged 14-19) with chaotic lifestyles, young people that can get a much wider benefit from being active. We are looking to develop sports sessions either working with groups of young people with chaotic lifestyles or in more deprived areas of Shropshire Telford and Wrekin.

 

Energize can fund sessions working with these target groups for a year. These sessions are tailored to the young people and Energize will work with the young people and club to sustain the session beyond energize funding.

 

If you know a group of young people with chaotic lives that would benefit from sport, Energize can meet with yourself and/or the young people and develop the entire club around them.

 

We have already had a lot of success with this programme working with targeted groups.

Some examples are:

 

The Shropshire Golf Satellite club: Targeting young people across 2 schools in Telford with Challenging behaviour – Click here for Video Link

 

Braking Chains – This is a cycling club designed to support people recovering from addictions. Since the weekly sessions have begun, a majority of the participants have gone on to take cycling up as a sport in their own time and have even marshalled at local events and entered competitions.

 

Substance misuse football: Using football to support young people during the recovery process of substance abuse. Click here for the video link

 

Willowdene Football – Focusing on people at risk of offending, the weekly football sessions have added structure to people’s lives as well as giving them the confidence to try other ways of being physically active. A lot of people attending these weekly sessions have gone onto join in with their local club and regularly attend their local gym.
