Soccer Trainer

YAAPHA needs soccer training volunteers to assist us in sport training activities for the children we support.

We have upgraded our sport and culture facilities in some of the Moshi communities for  talented young people. YAAPHA currently runs football (soccer) teams in Pasua and Mbokomu and we offer music and dance lessons in the Kaloleni Ward.
The organization has 10 local volunteers that regularly sport talent on the soccer grounds of Pasua. At the moment, there are 40 talented young players that meet every morning and evening at  "Pasua Grounds"of Moshi to get soccer coaching. Volunteers can assist both with finding talent and also being a soccer coach. 

As the organization is run completely on a voluntary bases, we cannot offer full-time activity to volunteers. Therefore, foreign volunteers during off hours may be asked to conduct sports training at  YAAPHA Centre.

A sports program volunteer at YAAPHA should have played soccer during his/her academic education and be up-to-date regarding all the soccer rules and regulations in his/her own country and agreeable to learn the soccer rules and regulations in Tanzania upon arrival in said country. 

The volunteer must be a mature individual who demonstrates sportsmanship through example and enjoys teaching all aspects of the game of soccer.
