Company : Travellers Worldwide
Location : Suva
Duration: 1 week to 3 months
Approx Costs: 500 to 2000 £ Pound (UK)

Take part in this fun filled and action packed program coaching children and imparting sport education based concepts, using recreational activities.

BACKGROUND: Fiji has over 700 primary schools and 150 secondary schools spread across both the public and private sectors. It is a country in much need of external help, especially with its youngsters.

Sports education plays a crucial role in the lives of the young Fijians, with Rugby being the most popular sport. The program activities could contain either one or all the following activities:

  • teaching the rules of sports,
  • teaching the basics of various sports,
  • demonstrating examples of different types of sports,
  • organizing sport-related activities,
  • playing sports with the children,
  • and teaching them about respect and fairness in sports.

This new sports education project is designed to create a relationship between children and you through recreational activities. You'll take part in this fun filled and action packed program coaching children and imparting sport education based concepts.

The Project organisation created their very own Sports Academy, designed in such a way that your interest in sports and the enthusiasm to share your knowledge and energy would be shared with the children. Children from the nearby community come after school hours and are grouped in teams. So, along with a local coach, you can impart your training to these budding sportsmen and give them workouts. At the end of the session you'll spend some time enjoying some refreshments with them.

We hope someday these young sportsmen will proudly represent their country on an international field.

Sports in a child’s life is of great importance for his/her physical development and will affect their future. You'll be encouraged to be creative and propose different sports-related activities, depending on the students’ ages, likes and interests.

Working on this Sports Education project will show you that education is a crucial part of achieving sustainable development. By teaching in these communities, you can make a real difference to the lives of young people growing up in Fiji. And you'll learn about life in Fiji as a teacher / coach.
