Sports Project
Some people find the concept of paying to volunteer a bit strange. The truth is you don’t actually pay for your volunteer project. That part is free. Your money goes on all the other benefits around it.

Project Assessment

Before you see a sports project on our website, a lot of background work has gone on. We have met with local organisations, vetted in-country staff, conducted rigorous safety assessments and thoroughly evaluated the benefits of the project, both for you and the community. Only then do you get to see the project and book your place, safe in the knowledge that the project is well-structured and beneficial to the local community.

Help Choosing Your Sports Project

If you are not sure which sports project or country to choose, our sports-mad Travel Advisors are here to help. They are a friendly bunch, have all travelled extensively and can offer lots of advice on choosing the right sports project for you. This makes the task of deciding to volunteer in a foreign country much less intimating, and far more exciting.

Pre-departure Advice

Once you have booked your sports project, you will be assigned a dedicated Travel Advisor to offer essential pre-departure advice on vaccinations, visas, kit lists and more. They will also be on call to answer those last minute questions like “how many pairs of socks do I need?” and “can I take my mobile phone with me?”

Help with Flights and Insurance

We do not include flights and travel insurance in our project fee. This avoids us having to pass on unnecessary admin charges to you. It also gives you flexibility to plan any travel before or after your volunteer project. We do, however, offer lots of help through our leading flights and insurance partners, providing you with an easy booking facility and the best prices around.

Airport Transfers

Landing in a foreign country for the first time can be daunting. This is why we ensure our in-country staff are there to meet you on arrival. There’s nothing like seeing a friendly face when you walk out of a new airport. And once we have given you a warm welcome, the in-country staff will take you back to your accommodation where you can meet the rest of the team and other volunteers.

Arrival Orientation

We will take you through a comprehensive orientation and project induction. This will introduce you to useful amenities and local customs, and it will also show you how to stay safe while volunteering abroad. Our team also has lots of handy travel tips if you are thinking of exploring the country in your spare time.

Accommodation and Meals

Accommodation and meals are included in all of our sports projects. Our volunteer houses are comfortable and very sociable places to live while overseas. In some destinations, you may be able to upgrade to alternative accommodation. Just contact us for details.

In-Country Staff

Your safety and enjoyment is extremely important to us. That’s why we have dedicated in-country teams to look after you throughout your sports project. Our staff live nearby, can be reached 24-hours a day and will check-in with you throughout your project.

24-Hour Emergency Support

In addition to our in-country staff, you will benefit from our international support network. You will be given emergency contact details before you leave which you can call in the event of a crisis. We are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Ongoing Project Support

For every sports coach who volunteers with us, we make a donation to our sister-charity in the UK – United Through Sport. This donation funds sports and educational initiatives in the countries our volunteers work and creates sporting opportunities for thousands of disadvantaged children.

Our Sports Alumni

All our sports volunteers automatically become members of the Sporting Opportunities Society (SOS), our international alumni of sporty volunteers. This lets you stay in touch with friends easily, get involved with fundraising events and enjoy discounts on future sports projects with us.

Recruiting Sports Volunteers

In order to provide a reliable flow of volunteers to our projects overseas, we have to spend a chunk of money on recruiting people like you. Our projects simply wouldn’t survive if we didn’t. And you can soon see that it costs to maintain a website, an office, phone lines and a team of dedicated Travel Advisors to answer all your questions!
