During this programme, you will teach the children team sports, mainly football (soccer) in a local stadium. This can be reached by bike within 15 minutes.
You will be teaching children from the local football team, so a love for football, accompanied with some football knowledge and/or experience, and team management skills will be a big help.
The class will be both technical and practical. Your coordinator will share ideas but you are expected to bring a go-to attitude and lead your group with drills, ideas and fitness exercises.
Keep in mind that equipment may be limited so you will need to show some resourcefulness and creativity.
This programme aims at giving the children more life skills while, at the same time, improving their fitness levels. You’ll receive plenty of coaching experience in turn.
You can expect to work for around six hours a day as a Sports Coach. After breakfast you’ll travel by bike to the local sports stadium where you’ll meet with students and coach them in two three hour sessions with a break in between for lunch.
The morning session is from 8:00am to 11:00am and the afternoon session 2:00pm to 5:00pm. After that you’ll return to your base for dinner and have the evening to yourself to socialise, relax or explore your exciting new location.
