VOLUNTEER SPORTS COACHING PROJECTS IN GHANA

 

Football/Soccer Coaching

Inspired by famous Ghanaian footballers like Michael Essien, Freddy Adu, Abedi Pele (to name just a few), it’s no wonder that the Ghanaian kids are mad about football!  Volunteer football/soccer coaching takes place in Accra either/both in the mornings from 7am till 10.30am and/or in the afternoons from 4pm till 6pm.

The ‘pitches’ are generally large clearings on hard orange sand and the enthusiasm of the players is overwhelming!  They are definitely football/soccer mad!!!

Bring out any old club kits, football clothing and football boots with you to donate to the kids.

Volunteer football/soccer coaches need to be knowledgeable about the game and keen to share their passion and skills with others!

If opting to coaching just in the afternoons, can combine with volunteering as a teacher at the school for underprivileged children in the mornings.
