Sporting Opportunities

Help our team coach various sports to disadvantaged kids whilst also teaching them important life-skills and educational messages.

About the Project

Sporting Opportunities runs sports coaching volunteer projects in Africa, Asia and South America, giving sporty people (like you) the chance to coach sports to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Our volunteers work together to organize coaching sessions and sports matches in the local community, giving children and youth athletes the chance to play and be coached in the sports they love. You don’t need to be an experienced or qualified coach to join our sports coaching projects. You just need lots of enthusiasm and some basic playing or coaching experience, be it at school, club, university or county level.

We have three available locations:

- St- Lucia
- Ghana
- Argentina

Social Impact

The main aim with this project is to bring kids together and give them further opportunities to play in a structured and friendly environment. We also use our coaching sessions to invite kids to our after school program where we improve education, raise health awareness and build life-skills. Sport for us is a powerful tool to teach kids important messages and we need your help to help us reach our goals.
