You don't need any qualifications to coach sports in Brazil, just a basic understanding of the game you're coaching and a love of sports, as well as an enthusiasm to share this!
We work with a football centre and a number of schools in Rio and you will split your time between the football centre and one of the schools. The football centre aims to provide sports activities to the local community and is a branch of one of the biggest football clubs in Rio de Janeiro . The children train for free and it is not only local children, but also children from the poorer suburbs of Rio. The Centre's main aim is to get the children of the streets by providing sport activities for them, which will allow them to improve their quality of life.
You'll spend time sharing your skills and building confidence and team morale, whilst working towards improving technique and strategy. What you will offer through coaching is immeasurable in terms of education in social skills, team work, self development, confidence and the obvious positive effects it will have on their English language learning.
You will be able to coach football at the centre three days a week on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays usually starting in the afternoon. The sessions on Monday tend to focus on football drills, on Wednesdays there is goal scoring practise and the Friday sessions give the children the opportunity to utilise new skills in match play. The children range in age but you'll be working with pre-teens and teenagers.
Your main role is to assist the coaches with general coaching.
