Developing Sport Coaching Abroad: Football

Sports, Football

Considered the world's most popular sport and played in virtually every country around the world, football is truly universal. It possesses a unique ability to excite and unite people, at home and abroad, as demonstrated by the 2006 World Cup. Football is fun!

Football's main quality has always been its simplicity; it requires a bare minimum of equipment, can be played pretty much anywhere - grass, concrete or sand - and is easy to pick-up. Played regularly it will develop many physical attributes: speed, stamina, balance and co-ordination being just a handful.

But football is about so much more than simply the physical side. It can be incredibly rewarding for children to participate in because it develops notions of team work, fair play and respect, which in turn help to develop character. Within this social context it can also be good for communities because football focuses the minds of younger people, occupying them with a wholesome, worthwhile activity and associated wider lifestyle.

For some who play football it can even be an avenue to fame and fortune but, for all, it's 'the beautiful game'!

Volunteer Coaching: Projects Abroad Football Placements

Sports, Football Volunteers Our aim is to give you and all our Football coaching volunteers the necessary information and skills to develop the young footballing talent of your chosen destination, whilst you develop your own skills as a coach. You do not have to be an experienced coach with an FA coaching certificate to get involved. You do not necessarily need to be a very capable footballer, although it is always an advantage if you have a few good skills.

Your role will be wide and varied, but there are certain criteria which are most definitely needed - including enthusiasm, knowledge of skills and techniques and a warm, approachable manner. You can volunteer on a Football coaching project on your gap year, career break or as part of an extended holiday.

Whether you're on a placement for one, two, three months or more we will provide a specific coaching programme to assist you in your role, and support you all the way. Whichever destination you choose to volunteer in, you will rapidly see the impact that you are making on the young people you are working with, and you will be gaining experience of sports development that will stand you in good stead if you choose to go into study or work in this area in the future.
