From £695
Duration 14 - 84 Days
Help us coach fun sports sessions for kids across the Caribbean island of St Lucia whilst soaking up what this amazing country has to offer. Ideal for a summer holiday or gap year.

Your Coaching and Playing Role in St Lucia
Deliver sports training sessions for kids and young people in St Lucia (The Caribbean) and help our teams bring more structure and understanding to the game. Although some of the kids have great natural ability, there is a general lack of coaching opportunities, particularly at a grass roots level, making your coaching placement critical in developing the sport for a much wider range of players.Sports available in Football/Soccer, Netball, Rugby, Cricket, Basketball and Swimming. We also have a general teaching assistant role for anyone interested.There are also a large amount of sports teams and clubs dotted throughout the island, which you will have the opportunity to work with. Additionally, if you like to play the game too then you may get the chance to compete with these teams and really experience all things sport on this wonderful island in the Caribbean.This sports coaching trip can fit nicely into a summer holiday starting from 2 weeks but we ideally want you to come on a longer trip of 4 weeks plus. That way you’ll be able to offer more to the young people you coach whilst also being able to really adjust and experience all this island has to offer. For those of you who have a bit more time, as you maybe on a gap year or career break, then a 12 week (3 month) project can also be done.

We only have a limited amount of places available so get in touch to find out more.

Free Time
During your free time you may want to explore this beautiful island from its interesting and iconic mountain peaks (Pitons) to its golden sandy beaches. Our in-country team will make sure you have ever opportunity to experience the adventures and activities on offer.Accommodation
Based in the north of the island, the accommodation is located perfectly between St. Lucia’s prime tourist and party location the Rodney Bay Strip and the country’s capital, Castries.

You’ll be staying in a large open-plan guest house with plenty of space. You’ll also have access to wifi, laundry facilities and American TV channels, making your stay that more comfortable.

St Lucia is an incredible island so join us on a sporting adventure this year and have a memory to talk about for many years to come.

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.
