About Sporting Opportunities
Sporting Opportunities takes sporty people to Africa, Asia and South America to coach sport, play sport and volunteer in sports. Perfect for sports gap years, career breaks and volunteer sports travel.
Sports Coaching Volunteer Projects
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 organise 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.
Sporting Opportunities organise tailor made sports tours with a difference. Our sports tours combine playing sports with impacting volunteer work. This means you and your team mates can play against local opposition in Africa, Asia or South America while also helping on worthwhile volunteer projects in the local community. And being the sports-mad organisation that we are, these volunteer projects tend to be sports-orientated, such as running coaching sessions in townships or organising sports tournaments in local schools. It’s easy to see why our tours are both challenging and deeply rewarding on many levels.
Sporting Opportunities organises sports camps for young athletes aged between 12 and 16 who want to improve their skill, ability and mental approach to sport. Our residential camps are based in South Africa and are open to athletes from all over the world. This offers a fantastic cultural experience. And with first class facilities and professional sports coaching, our sports camps are ideal for any aspiring athlete who wants to take their game to the next level.
