This programme is for volunteers interns and aspiring coaches, through our grassroots projects they will use sport as a vehicle for combating prevalent social issues in some of St. Lucia’s most disadvantaged communities. Volunteers will work within schools and communities tackling issues such as gang culture and childhood obesity through sport.
Coaches will work with children (aged 4-12), adolescents (13-17) and senior teams.
Aims & Objectives
The overall aim of our grassroots projects is to equip all children in the region with the means to play and enjoy sport and reap the obvious health and developmental benefits. Our volunteers will achieve this by providing sessions for our grassroot and school of excellence projects, tackling the most prevalent issues facing the region’s youth, while improving sport in the Caribbean holistically.
Volunteers coaching week is Sunday to Thursday. Daily work schedules vary but generally days are either: School session 13:00 – 15:00 then After school sessions 15.15 – 17.00 or After School 15.00 – 16.45 then after work/college seniors 5-7/dark. Evenings and weekends are free time but are filled with lots of options of various social activities and excursions with other volunteers – see activities and events below.
Program participant criteria
Participants must be a minimum of 18 years old, there is no maximum age (we have had 47 year olds before) however any prospective volunteers should be informed that the majority of other participants will be between 18 and 25 years old. No coaching qualifications are required but an ability and understanding of the sport they intend to coach is important as well as a passion and enthusiasm for working with kids.
Volunteers should bring a whistle and appropriate clothing to coach in (shorts, t-shirt, sports shoes). All required coaching equipment is provided (e.g. balls, cones, bibs) however volunteers are welcome to bring extra equipment for their chosen sport if they wish.
