Why This Placement Is Right For You

Our sports coaching and sport development projects enable students and professionals to play a vital role in teaching youth within communities the importance of maintaining active and healthy lifestyles, while building skills in teamwork and sportsmanship.

Tackling gender inequality on the football pitch, or using sport to improve children’s literacy and numeracy by working alongside local sports teams and education organisations, this is an opportunity for university students, graduates and sports professionals to develop their practice in a community project like no other.

Placement Focus

This opportunity is a mix of rural and inner city projects and it’s available for sports groups. We have a wide range of rewarding sports coaching opportunities available. You will work with local teams, clubs and schools to develop the sport, skills and the players you will be working closely with.
