If you have a love for sports and a little sporting ability, then you could play an important part in the personal development of young sports men and women in Ghana. Our sports projects include soccer or football, basketball, net ball coaching in schools and communities. Volunteer Sports Coaching Placement takes you on a sport coaching which can have a very positive impact on children. As well as the obvious physical and mental benefits that regular exercise provides, there are many inherent life-skills to be learnt, such as the importance of team-work, communication and discipline.
Wherever you travel in the world you will always find people who love sports. Sports bring people together and help to build strong communities, as well as contribute to the creation of healthy, happy individuals. Sports can also provide a much-needed distraction from more negative aspects of people’s lives and, to many people from disadvantaged backgrounds, it can offer a route out of poverty and a path of excitement and promise.Sports projects share the following aims
Fostering of local sports talent through provision of quality coaches and support for our volunteer trainee coaches.
Development of the wider communities in which we work through offering alternatives to young people from impoverished areas.
Inclusion - making sports available to all.
As a volunteer coach Sports Project, you will be helping with all these aspects of development while working with the most enthusiastic people in some of the poorest communities in Ghana, we can help you make the most of your time. We will help you find a schedule that is right for you. You could be learning more about your sport in the morning and organizing a game in the afternoon. Volunteer sports coaches are responsible for helping in the organization in all aspects of training; from setting up drills and fitness sessions, to coaching sports teams in competitive games.
Through well-established relationships with local teams, clubs, and carefully structured sports placements, we are able to assist volunteers regardless of coaching experience. Whatever your interests we can find the right Sports project overseas for you!
