Sports Development and Fitness

Are you are you looking for sports opportunities in Ghana to support physical education, or sports development?

Tackling gender inequality on the football pitch using sport to improve children’s literacy and numeracy, this is an opportunity for university students and sports professionals to put their theory into practice in a community project like no other.

Our Sports Development and Fitness projects enable students and professionals to play a vital role in teaching youth within communities in Ghana the importance of maintaining active and healthy lifestyles, while building skills in teamwork and sportsmanship.

You’ll discover that children thrive on the opportunity to learn new sports and develop their skills.

To be an effective sports coach abroad, you’re encouraged to be inventive with your lesson plans, incorporating new games and sports, teaching new skills, and organising tournaments for the children.

You will love sport and have real enthusiasm for working with children. You will work with children to help develop their interest in a range of sports and increase their skill base.

In addition to the physical benefits of sports education, this project helps in developing the mental discipline of the children, as well as heightening their alertness and coordination.
