typical day What's it like

A typical day on this gap year project

You will coach for 3 hours each day, avoiding the hottest time across lunch time. Location can vary depending on which sport you are coaching, working at a football academy or local schools. As sports are not included as a part of education, volunteering with the team provides the children with an opportunity which they love. For them, this is a chance to learn new skills, compete in friendly tournaments and exercise. Their enthusiasm is matched only by their energy, ensuring that you will be kept on your toes throughout the placement! Previous volunteers have coached football, rugby, cricket, netball, hockey, tennis and martial arts, among many others. If you have previous experience of coaching, you may be able to apply for a football coaching internship, boosting your CV and providing valuable hands-on experience.
