Trip Details

Are you passionate about sport and passing on valuable skills to children? Grab this opportunity to take part in a project aimed at developing children’s sports skills while encouraging their emotional, social, physical and academic growth. As a participant, you will be expected to deliver fun sports sessions to children in rural areas, encouraging them to be involved in a wide variety of sports. Focusing mainly on team sports, you’ll be organising activities involving sports like netball, football, volleyball and basketball. Using these sports, the children will also develop a better level of stamina, emotional well-being and overall health. Additionally, they will develop teamwork skills that will be highly beneficial to them in the future. These include communication, collaboration, decision making, problem solving and leadership skills. Using the sports field for all activities, the program ensures the children enjoy the space and freedom of the outdoors.

Please Note: Projects start on a Monday, however you should arrive over the weekend on either Saturday or Sunday.

Trip Itinerary

Monday

You’ll enjoy breakfast at the accommodation before being transferred to the project location where you will get to know the team you’ll be working with, including the sports coach. At this point you’ll be given an introduction to the project, the curriculum and the active role you’ll be playing during your stay.

Tuesday to Friday

A detailed schedule of each day will be provided onsite as it is largely dependent on the timings of the partner school. However, you can expect to deliver up to 2 training sessions a day during school hours and a further two hours after school finishes at 15:30.

** Please note: This schedule can be changed and/or amended depending on weather conditions, local conditions and unforeseen circumstances. **

Trip Country Info

From trekking in the beautiful mountains of the north to enjoying the glorious beaches in the south and experiencing the hustle and bustle of the metropolis that is Bangkok, Thailand is certainly not a country that lacks variety.

Whilst it really is at the heart of Southeast Asia, bordered by Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Malaysia, its cultural identity remains very unique. As the only country in Southeast Asia to avoid European powers, the Thai are proud to refer to themselves as ‘The Land of the Free’ and many tourists might also know it as ‘The Land of Smiles’ due to its friendly people.

Thailand is not only a famous holiday and gap year travel destination, but one of the most exciting countries in the world. Gap year travel to Thailand enables you to experience the excitement of city life as well as the serenity of some of the most spectacular remote islands and countryside areas.  By booking your gap year holiday to Thailand with TRU, you will be able to get a unique view of this amazing country that is difficult to replicate on your own.  We have a fabulous selection of gap year adventures in Thailand from Gibbon encounters and Elephant Sanctuary work to Clayhouse building and volunteering programs.

With our range of ongoing programs, you can even compose your schedule the way you like it. With this flexibility it enables you to say when you are on site and when you spend time with the new friends you have made from all over the world.  Have a look at our latest volunteering and gap year travel to Thailand below or give us a call to find out more about our exciting gap year programs in Thailand.

You can take this opportunity to mix and match projects tailor to your preference. Why pick one when you can pick several.
