There are over 30 different sports to coach in 15 countries - the choice is yours! You can coach as a full time placement, or alongside teaching another subject. Remember, you choose your dates and length of program!

In some parts of the world where we work, children don't have any opportunity to play competitive sports. In some of our countries, you may have the opportunity to organise a Travellers Tournament as part of your placement. This is something the children really enjoy and benefit from.

Why is sport so important for children?

  • Confidence and Self-Esteem 
  • Health, Fitness and Strength: Physical, Emotional and Psychological
  • Building Friendships, Cooperation and Team Spirit 
  • Healthy Competition
  • Energy/Anger Outlet
  • Expression and Individuality
  • Provides positive goals or the children to strive toward
  • Fun and Laughter!

As a Travellers Sports Coach you can do more than just coach your sport. In various countries we have partnerships with local teams which will give you the opportunity to train with and possibly play for a local team in your particular sport, getting you totally involved in the local sporting culture. This is an incredible way to become a part of a different culture, whilst making friends instantly, without any barriers.

What do you gain from doing this project?

  • An exciting, never-to-be-forgotten adventure
  • The enormous satisfaction of helping disadvantaged children and knowing that you made a difference to them.
  • New skills, more confidence, a greater understanding of a different culture, invaluable personal and professional development.
  • Experience in how to interact with children and yet retain authority.
  • An entry on your CV/resume that will put you head and shoulders above most others in the job market        
  • A massive confidence boost and the enormous satisfaction of making a huge difference to the children and their abilities.
  • And best of all ... an unforgettable experience!
