SPORTS AND COACHING PLACEMENT

Philanthropic volunteers of Ghana implements football and other sporting disciplines as one of its programmes. Share your passion for football with African children from deprived backgrounds. Working in communities, you will help them to develop their sporting skills. The level of talents existing in Ghana was highlighted by the country’s presence in the 2006 FIFA World Cup held in Germany. You will have the opportunity to help harness and develop that talent! The organization runs the programme in collaboration with soccer clubs (divisions 1&2 and colts) and schools.
Volunteer(s) Role
Work with children from various deprived backgrounds, including orphans, street children and among others.
The Football Volunteer(s) Program operates in mainly the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. During your programme, you will have the opportunity to take part in the following programme activities:

1. Assist coaches in football training through skill development, coordination skills, game preparation and training drills.
2. Help in the organization of training sessions and competitions
3. Referee short games for children at the project and in the local community
4. Give advice and lessons on football tactics
5. Teach new sports exercises and provide advice on health issues and requirements
6. Take part in football camps and local tournaments
7. Optional teaching within the academy or local schools

In your leisure hours each day you will also have the fantastic opportunity to teach within local schools in the area placed. The schools will vary in their facilities, but generally consist of a few classrooms with about 20 children desks and a blackboard, so there are loads of opportunities for you to be creative in your role and make the lessons memorable for the children!

The goal of this project is primarily to develop football (soccer) as a sporting event and other sports in Ghana, and fish out as many as good talents in our rural communities.
Volunteers also take children through series of training in other sporting activities like: long tennis, table tennis, skipping ropes, basketball etc.
The human resource services required includes the following;
• Physiologists
• Physical trainers
• Dieticians
• Professionals
• Coaches/Club managers
• Academy instructors
• Volunteer footballers
