As a sports coaching volunteer in South Africa you will be providing an opportunity for children in the community to participate in sports activities. You will be keeping them active and fit; and steering them away from negative things in life such as drugs, drinking and crime.
Through sports we aim to inspire kids and give them opportunities that do not exist in their normal environment.
The most popular sports with the local children are soccer and netball; however we encourage volunteers to share their personal skills and introduce new sports to the children.
You may be running your own independent sports workshops or assisting local community members with sports workshops.
