South African children are fun-loving and passionate about sport, and eager for any opportunity to play their favourite games. However, many schools in the community have a lack of funds and resource to provide physical education classes for their students. As a Sports Development volunteer, you will provide the supervision and guidance to enable students to practice and enjoy a range of sports and improve social skills.
Sports Development volunteers in Cape Town work with children aged between 6-12 years-old, planning and delivering innovative physical education lessons. You can focus lessons on popular local sports or introduce new ones. You will have access to the local curriculum to help guide your lesson planning. It is important to note that resources are limited and if you wish to introduce a sport, you would need to bring any equipment with you.
This project is well suited to volunteers who are passionate about sports and youth development, and would love the opportunity to share their passion with young learners.
As you will be volunteering alongside the local team and local teachers, you don’t need to have experience in teaching or coaching to participate.
If you choose to volunteer during the school holidays, you will help out on a special holiday project, which involves a variety of activities aimed at promoting physical, social and personal development.
