About Sporting Opportunities

Sporting Opportunities is for anyone who loves sport and wants to travel with it. We have a number of different ways that you can get involved, whether it be coaching sports to kids on a volunteer project abroad, getting qualified as an instructor in a new sport like skiing or snowboarding or taking your game to the next level whereby we place you with a top club overseas so you can work on your own fitness and skills development.

Our trips are ideal for school, college and sports groups, gap year students, students at university, those looking for an exciting and worthwhile summer holiday as well as people needing to take a career break or professional sabbatical abroad.

Sports Coaching Volunteer Projects

Sporting Opportunities runs sports coaching volunteer projects in Africa, Asia and South America, giving sporty people (like you) the chance to coach sports to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Our volunteers work together to organise coaching sessions and sports matches in the local community, giving children and youth athletes the chance to play and be coached in the sports they love. You don’t need to be an experienced or qualified coach to join our sports coaching projects. You just need lots of enthusiasm and some basic playing or coaching experience, be it at school, club, university or county level.

Sports Tours

Sporting Opportunities organise tailor made sports tours with a difference. Our sports tours combine playing sports with impacting volunteer work. This means you and your team mates can play against local opposition in America, Australasia (Australia, New Zealand and Fiji) Africa, Asia or South America while also helping on worthwhile volunteer projects in the local community. And being the sports-mad organisation that we are, these volunteer projects tend to be sports-orientated, such as running coaching sessions in townships or organising sports tournaments in local schools. It’s easy to see why our tours are both challenging and deeply rewarding on many levels.

This could see you going to the snowy slopes of Canada and training to become a ski or snowboard instructor taking you into some of the worlds most beautiful resorts as you teach others in the mountains. And if you like water then you could spend your summer months in warm ocean waters whilst training in a range of watersports activities.
