Football Satellite Programme #SurprisingSurrey
Surrey Sports Park launches Football Satellite Club
Surrey Sports Park has launched a new football ‘Satellite Club’ on Friday evenings, as part of its ongoing commitment to provide students with a platform to help the community.
In partnership with Active Surrey, Surrey Football Association, Kings College School and local grassroots football club, Guildford Saints, the weekly recreational session for 14-19 year olds is delivered by Guildford Saints football coaches, and supported by student coaches from the University.
The club has been made possible through a Sport England grant via Active Surrey, to help achieve Sport England’s aim to bridge the gap between school, college and community sport, and to provide new opportunities for young people to get involved. It is hoped that the sessions will have the further benefit of working to combat social exclusion in the area, using this inclusive football club as a vehicle to raise aspirations of the young people who take part.
The Satellite Club takes place at Surrey Sports Park every Friday from 6:30 – 7:30pm, at a cost of just £1 per person (with bursaries available).
