Secure your place on this project for just £99 Deposit - Limited Time Offer! Join Travellers Worldwide in one of our Sports projects in Accra, Ghana! We work with various schools in the area, and you will be able to teach many underprivileged children in the capital of beautiful Ghana. We offer two coaching placements: Cricket and Football.You will be involved with kids under 14, who are all very enthusiastic about sports! There are a number of successful tournaments between the schools, both in football and cricket, and you will also have the possibility to train and play with national teams.
You'll probably work in a few different schools, depending on your timetable. Part of the uniqueness of Cricket is that the game also embodies a philosophy and discipline based on "fair play" and other life skills - so you'll actually be teaching the children more than 'just cricket'!
The schools are a mixture of primary, junior and secondary. You will generally be asked to teach cricket to all age groups.
On this very rewarding project, you'll work with a number of schools in Accra, coaching football during lesson times and coaching the school teams after school. You could also be involved in organising, managing and running the Travellers Football Tournaments. Football is a massive sport and played by millions across the country on typical African dirt pitches. With players like Michael Essien, Ghana has an abundance of talent ... and undiscovered talent waiting to be found.
As there is very little sports infrastructure and little opportunity for schools to play in competitive tournaments in Ghana, Travellers have created a number of tournaments which allow the children to use the skills they have learnt from the volunteers and put them into practice playing against other schools. If you are involved in one of the Travellers tournaments, it will be the highlight of your placement. You'll see how all of the work you have done on your placement will have paid off - and to see the enjoyment it brings to the children is priceless.
