We mostly run four main sports in the partner schools: football, basketball, tag rugby and netball. The programs complement each other to bring best results for the kids. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+

X-SUBA works with three public schools in the community. X-SUBA mission is to use sports and play to educate and empower children and youth to overcome the effect of poverty, disease and conflict through talent development and lifeskills education. X-SUBA has taken ground to promote sports and play in these schools. Most schools in the community have only one sports tutor for the whole school of maybe 1500 students, which limits the possibility for children to do sports and exercises during school hours. The reason for our involvement in the schools is to develop the co-curriculum activities while empowering our young people through education/lifeskills as a whole. We mostly run three sports in the partner schools and these involve football, basketball, tag rugby and netball. We hope to introduce handball as a sport, too. However a volunteer can also come up with different alternative sport since we have a vase number of children who can always join.

Roles of a coach/sports volunteer

  • You will be required to pick a particular sport that you will lead in a particular school together with the local volunteers
  • Set up teams and lead friendly competition both in school and out of school
  • Promote inclusive sports and right to play among children in the community since we aim at including all children in our sports activities
  • Identify strength and weekness of all participants and always provite assistance where possible
  • Design training manual that creat results and are measurable in the long run
  • Seek for partners in the same particuler sports that could be helpful, be it idea, sourcing for materials, or even funding a particular project
  • Draw weekly reports about performance in the field. 

All programs complement each other and the sports program is one of the programs at the academy that makes work complete and more effective. The Sports program goes further from the academy to our partner schools. Twice a week our life coaches visit each school and deliver the package which is normally accompanied with our life skills/lessons.
