Why the Sports Coaching & Development internship volunteer programme is for you

Our sports coaching and sport development volunteer programme 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.


  • Work alongside and learn directly from local sports coaches and teachers
  • Add practical coaching experience to your CV
  • Gain valuable work experience to enhance your career prospects or to use towards teacher training 
  • Physical training, skills development and mental strength ability
  • Teach children how to work as a team and bring the best out in the players
  • Develop your creativity and adaptability by working in a low-resource environment
  • Learn how to promote the importance of healthy living 


You will be involved in sports coaching and daily training sessions with the kids. 

You will focus on a different age group each week. There are four teams in total (3 boys and 1 girls teams). The boys’ age groups are U10, U13, U15. The girls team is 13-17.

Sports is an excellent way for the kids to develop themselves, their teamwork and communication skills and to keep active and healthy. 

We also include mental health support and you will be asked pay attention to any children you think could do with extra support in terms of behaviour, emotions, well-being. You will also go and work in the local school and help out with afternoon sports sessions.

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.
