Taking part in a rugby coaching project abroad is a great way to spread your passion for rugby to communities and school students in deprived countries around the world. Your rugby coaching project may require volunteers to fundraise so that money can be collected to purchase sporting equipment and update training venues. Participants in rugby coaching programs are responsible for organising training clinics, rugby matches and ensuring that the local community has every chance to get involved in the game. Volunteers might even be lucky enough to organise tournaments, teach at rugby academies or scout for the professional rugby stars of tomorrow.
Most rugby coaching takes place in the afternoon and after school so during the mornings most volunteers usually work on school sports projects or help the students with their English. Volunteers sometimes get involved with local governments, trying to create and action policy to encourage children to play more sport (specifically rugby) in their free time.
Rugby coaching abroad is an extremely exciting project to get involved with and could really set your gap year apart; making it one to remember.
