Go sports-mad in Ghana and take on the role of a lifetime as you become a sports coach and pass on your sports passion to kids in Africa. You can choose from a wide range of sports on offer so you can coach your favourite sport while exploring Ghana and having amazing African adventures. Coach feet-first on the football pitch, hand over hockey tips, take on a rugby-coaching role, try out tennis skills, and much more! You also get the chance to train alongside some of Ghana’s best teams yourself. Explore Ghana in your free time; see wonderful waterfalls, laze on beautiful beaches, discover lush jungles and spot incredible animals in the National Parks as well as trying fun activities. Inspire the international sporting stars of the future and discover unexplored Africa in gorgeous Ghana!
The sports coaching placements start on Saturdays through out the year. You will have a full orientation and introduction before you begin coaching, which will set out your individual placement itinerary depending on the sport you have chosen.
When you arrive at the project you’ll spend a couple of days getting to know your fellow sports coaches and the other volunteers. You’ll get a full introduction to Ghana and learn more about your chosen placement and your duties as a coach. You’ll have a city tour of Accra, visit a vibrant local market and be initiated in everything you need to know about the local culture. Then kick back and relax a trip to some local bars with your fellow coaches! It’s a sociable start that will set you up for the rest of your exciting stay in Ghana.
There are a whole host of exhilarating sports you can coach in Ghana, from showing off your footwork on the football field to bouncing your way across the basketball court. With such a wide range of sports on offer you can pick and choose your favourite pastime and pass on your top tips to kids on this coaching challenge.
Generally, your sports coaching duties will require 4-6 hours commitment per day during weekdays, with weekends off to relax and explore Ghana.
You can choose to volunteer with the following sports, depending on availability:
Other available sports include tennis, boxing, basketball, cricket and golf!
Ghana is such a wonderfully welcoming and friendly country, your free time is all about having fun and amazing African adventures as you explore the best Ghana has to offer. While your sports coaching placement is a top priority, the programme is arranged to give great provision for time off and travel in Ghana.
Across the country there are amazing places just waiting to be explored, including Lake Volta, the stunning Wli waterfalls, the Boabeng-Fiema Monkey Sanctuary or one of the wildlife safaris at the incredible National Parks. Relax under the palm trees on beautiful beaches and be enlightened by the inspiring energy of gorgeous Ghana.
Please note during the month of August the schools are on holiday so therefore normal lessons do not go ahead, however we do offer a recess programme which we run throughout August, which gives the volunteers a opportunity to teach.
