Volunteer Sports Project in Samoa

Volunteer Coaching sports in Samoa

The Sports project in Samoa is ideal for volunteers with a passion for sport and an interest in helping others progress in their own sporting capability, whether you are on a gap year or a career break.

Volunteers have the opportunity to coach local children in a wide range of sports. You will have the chance to work in schools, community centres as well as sports clubs and can choose from a wide range of sports, like rugby, football and volleyball.

Volunteering on the Sports project

Sports volunteers can choose to work in a school or with a specific sports organisation.

As a Sports volunteer working in a local school in Samoa, rugby, football, basketball and hockey will be taught. Health & Physical Education (HPE) has been included in the curriculum of Samoan schools and is definitely an area in need of assistance.

Volunteers in the schools should expect to work a minimum of 6 hours per day. There is also the option to combine school sports with a Care or Teaching project. This option continues during school holidays with our summer school programme.

Volunteers also have the opportunity to work with a sports organisation, such as the Samoa Rugby Union (the most popular sporting body in Samoa with the Prime Minister as its patron), the Samoa Rugby League, the Samoa Football Soccer Federation and a weightlifting organisation. Volunteers choosing one of these options may work up to eight hours per day.

Each sports organisation runs development programmes with schools and various sport groups. Volunteers will have the chance to interact with students of all ages (from five years and older), as well as adults, if you help to train the coaches and referees.

With the long working hours and responsibilities given at these Sports placement, volunteers need to join this project for four weeks or more.
