As the first organisation (back in 2002) using sport for social change, our team has a huge amount of experience to make sure you and the community have a valuable and rewarding trip.
In South Africa, we deliver the sports sessions in over 80 disadvantaged schools around the Port Elizabeth area, using sport for much more than just a kick about. Your participation in running coaching workshops for kids will help us improve the lives of thousands. Our kids have gone on to get careers and even play professionally.
Your Sports Coaching Role
We need you to take part in a 5 weeks or more sports coaching project for children in South Africa. On this project you will jump onto one of our fun buses and visit various schools around the township communities of Port Elizabeth.
Coach a range of sports with other volunteer sports coaches and have an experience doing something truly rewarding. You’ll be part of a sustainable project that reaches more than 20,000 children a year and gives a few young people the chance to further their education at top schools and universities in the area.
We use sport to bring kids together to have fun whilst also using it as a tool to tackle social issues and build life-skills in the children we work with.
Sports available are basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, swimming and tennis. We also have a care work and teaching placement available too.
Social Time On Your Sports Experience Abroad
We want you to enjoy what South Africa has on offer and organise great trips to a local safari park and also a weekend spent in Jefferies Bay so you can surf and dune board. Port Elizabeth also has a vibrant night life so we are sure you will fit right in and party with the locals. Our accommodation has a swimming pool and games room to help you relax and decent WIFI so you can keep in contact with your friends and family back home.
Other Sports Opportunities Abroad
We run sports coaching and playing opportunities throughout South America, The Caribbean, Africa, Asia and the South Pacific, so if you are interested in these too then let us know when you make an enquiry.
