Trip Details

Children from the nearby community come after school hours to the Sports Academy and are grouped in teams. So, along with a local coach, you can impart your training to these budding sportsmen, give them workouts and at the end of the session enjoy some refreshments with them.

We hope some day these young sportsmen will proudly represent their country on an international field.

Sports in a child’s life is of great importance for his/her physical development and will affect their future. As a gap year volunteer in Fiji we encourage you to be creative and propose different sports-related activities depending on the students’ ages, likes and interests.

By teaching in these communities, you can make a real difference to the lives of young people growing up in Fiji, and learn about life in Fiji as a teacher. Sports education plays a crucial role in the lives of the young Fijians, with Rugby being the most popular sport. The program activities could be either one or all the activities such as teaching sports rules and games, organising sport related activities and playing actual sports with the children.
