Benefits of volunteering and becoming a sports coaching volunteer abroad


Have you ever considered becoming a sports coach volunteering abroad? What about all the benefits that you can bring to the communities you work with? Sports volunteering abroad has so many benefits for the community you work with, the country you work in, the people you interact with but there are even benefits to the volunteer who decides to dedicate their time to do volunteer sports coaching abroad.

While all countries around the world have, play and follow sports for the majority of people sports aren’t taken seriously and playing football for example is just a way to pass time. In many countries it is only the wealthy that are able to hire coaches and spend time getting good at a sport and learning the tactics.

When people decide to do volunteer sports coaching abroad they are exposing people to a whole new set of information that will allow them to get better (and feel empowered) from improving their game.

Depending on where you go you might work with teens or adults who have no concept of sports coaching, or you might be the person they need to improve their game to the point where they can compete professionally. You may also inspire and motivate people who haven’t had many chances in life and you will probably make many people smile!

As well as helping the individuals a sports coaching volunteer abroad can bring a lot to a community, especially an impoverished one. Often attention and time greatly outweigh money and your presence as a volunteer can make a difference for years to come. You may inspire more people to play the sport you are good at or are helping with or even encourage more people in that community to become physically active, improving the wellbeing of the whole community.

As well as benefits to the people and the community you work with, Volunteer sports coaching abroad can also bring you benefits. Not only are you able to teach and coach others about something you are passionate about, but it gives you real experience to improve yourself as a coach. Sports coaching volunteers abroad might even get to teach you a thing or two about being a coach.

Oftentimes volunteers include their experience on their resume which can help them get better jobs in the future, as the experience is more worthwhile and shows employers that you are proactive and want to make a difference in the world.

As well as the benefits to the volunteer, the community and the people directly working with the volunteer sports coaching abroad it is also a really meaningful way to travel and explore the world and different cultures.

Often you will have access to communities and places that tourists will not go to and the local people will be more inclined to share their culture with a volunteer than a tourist. Global crossroads has searched the world for some of the most affordable, memorable and meaningful sports coaching volunteering abroad programs, and can also help tailor make a trip for those who know where they want to go.
