Volunteers help children in physical exercise. Sports volunteers can help with volleyball, physical education and more. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:

Physical Education Teaching Assitants:

Physical Education teachers are commonly referred to as P.E. teachers or gym teachers. P.E. teachers are skilled and educated in physical education and athletic training. They are knowledgeable about the human body and a wide variety of sports including basketball, gymnastics, football, baseball, tennis, and aerobics.

Our P.E. teaching assistants should be enthusiastic, physically fit, patient, and excellent communicators. They positively influence their students both physically and mentally. These volunteers should be able to prepare lessons while maintaining students' physical needs, apprehensions, and challenges in mind.

These volunteers should also have the capacity to motivate students to perform physical activities while making them competitive and cooperative at the same time.

The volunteers:

Our volunteers in sport come in all shapes and sizes. They are of all ages and backgrounds.They have different skills and experiences and are certainly not all sport enthusiasts!

They also give their time to sport for different reasons – some are parents with children in a sport club, some are people who don’t want to go running, walking, swimming etc. by themselves, others are sport enthusiasts who don’t want to play but want to be part of their local club. They might also be plumbers, electricians, accountants, web designers etc. who give their time for free - there are many different reasons but the main thing is that they all want to get involved and help make sport happen.

Typical day

As a volunteer in this program you will have to support our local P.E. teachers in the following tasks:

  • plan, organise and perform P.E. lessons
  • come up with new ideas for sport games
  • motivate the students
  • teach them the skills that are necessary for individual sports (e.g. Volleyball)
