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!

Further trip information

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.  Generally, your sports coaching duties will require 4-6 hours commitment per day during weekdays, with weekends off to relax and explore Ghana.  Great optional weekend activities and trips can be arranged from your accommodation, at an extra cost.

A typical day at your shared accommodation offers fixed mealtimes, with all meals included.

• Breakfast will be served from 6:30-8:30.

• Lunch will be served from 12:50- 13:50.

• Dinner will be served from 17:00- 18:30

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.
