Sports coaching and teaching in South Africa

Einsatzort: Südafrika, Afrika
Aktions-Bereich: Sport, Unterricht & Bildung
Immerse yourself in the local community as an sports coach or volunteer English teacher - or both! Go into local schools with a group of volunteers to help children develop their knowledge, sporting abilities, motivation and enjoyment. Sports include football, tennis, swimming, rugby, cricket, netball and basketball.

Projekt und Rolle der Freiwilligen

Sports coaching
Open up a world of opportunity to underprivileged children by coaching sports in township schools. Inspired by their sporting heroes, these kids are delighted to be given the chance to excel in sports which they cannot formally learn at school. For many of the children, this is a turning point in their lives. This is where you come in:

  • Coach football, tennis, rugby, cricket, hockey, swimming and netball in a combination of township schools
  • Coach at three schools per day, five days a week, helping hundreds of children each week
  • Act as a positive role model for the children

Volunteers are often amazed by the perseverance and passion of the children that they come into contact with. This is a mass participation programme, provided sport to children who do not receive any form of physical education as part of their curriculum. The programme sponsors the best sporting achievers through secondary school. This is often life changing.

You can specialise in one sport if you wish, although we find most volunteers enjoy the variety of coaching multiple sports throughout the week. Having the freedom to choose between different sports makes the weeks even more diverse.

Teaching and childcare
Being able to speak and understand English is vital for marginalised kids growing up in South Africa. Having these skills will stand them in really good stead later on in life. This is where you come in:

  • Spend your days motivating children to learn in schools, helping them to improve their conversational English and of course receiving plenty of hugs and smiles whilst you are at it
  • If you are more interested in caring for younger children, you can spend your mornings getting involved at a local nursery. Help with preparing food, playing games and feeding the little ones and generally becoming a human climbing frame before they head off for their afternoon nap!

If you love to have fun and have a big-heart then this programme is the one for you. There will never be a dull moment and you are guaranteed to be busy and kept on your toes.

Both projects are based in and around Port Elizabeth which is known as the “friendly city.” Situated on the coast, it boasts activities from water sports to shopping, with a great range of bars and restaurants to enjoy.

At the weekends there is lots to get involved in and we provide a number of optional activities from safaris and bush camps to bungee jumping and dune boarding.
