Sporting Opportunities is for anyone who has a love for sport and a passion for travel. We have a number of different ways that you can get involved, whether it be coaching sports to kids on a volunteer project abroad, getting qualified as an instructor in a new sport like skiing, snowboarding or taking your game to the next level whereby we place you with a top club overseas so you can work on your own fitness and skills development.
Our trips are ideal for school, college and sports groups, gap year students, students at university, those looking for an exciting and worthwhile summer holiday as well as people needing to take a career break or professional sabbatical abroad.
Sports Coaching Volunteer Projects
Sporting Opportunities runs sports coaching volunteer projects in Africa, Asia and South America, giving those who love sport the chance to coach 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 America, Australasia (Australia, New Zealand and Fiji) 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.
