Sports Development & Coaching



Overview

Get involved with running sports and PE classes with either a set or varied age range. Ghana is football mad but if you have a passion for another sport the children will be more than willing to try out any new game that is explained! (Who knows we might have the next sports star in the making here). Depending on the size of the school in which you are allocated and how many classes we agree to run you may get time to assist/run classroom focused lessons in other academic subjects throughout the day. Our sports program helps underprivileged athletes by placing volunteers like you in high schools. You'll be responsible for teaching sports to these eager children. Work involves coaching both theoretically and practically.

Being sports professional is not required. You don't need to be a coach, athlete, or sports teacher to participate, though we do encourage you to enroll if you are. Only passion for sports and teaching is necessary. You must enjoy working with children and young adults, and being an active participant in sports activities.

Your volunteer work will get the youths excited about sports. It's surprising just how interested they can become once you're involved. Your presence is a powerful motivation for these athletes to come to practice.
