Sport in Fiji
Traditionally Fijians are renowned for their unrelenting passion for rugby union and particularly Rugby Sevens, in which they have excelled over the years thanks to the inherent pace, fitness and athletic physique of the Fijian people! Fijian’s love to keep active, and sport is more of a way of life in this tranquil region of the world, with the local kids jumping at the chance to get a ball in their hands, or at their feet, and showing off their skills.
Although rugby is undoubtedly the national sport of Fiji, we ask for our volunteers to be proactive and creative when running their coaching sessions, and introduce a range of different sports and recreational games. By keeping the sessions dynamic, our volunteer sports coaches can give the kids they work with a wide range of experiences and the opportunity to experience and understand sports that they would not normally have the opportunity to try.
Multi-Sports Coaching Placement
Located around the Sigatoka area, this hugely rewarding and enlightening project has been put in place to provide a link and build relationships between international sports coaching volunteers and the local schools and communities. By using sports as a tool for improving educational development, social and interpersonal skills, and also cultural understanding for the local kids and young adults, your work as a volunteer sports coach will be diverse and incredibly fun!
Working with schools in local region, you will travel into villages and from here you will get to know the local teachers and pupils who will be really enthusiastic to take in all that you have to teach them. You specific placement schools will be dependant on the local needs at the time of your visit.
Multi-Sports Coaching Role
The main aim of your time coaching sport in Fiji will be to impact the social, educational and sporting development of the kids you work with in a positive way! Working in different communities will give you a diverse experience, assisting a range of local sports coaches, sharing your skills and experience to guide the kids in the right sporting direction.
Your coaching role will be a great way for you to explore your own skills and develop your coaching style through teaching the rules that govern each sport, teaching basic skills and techniques, organising matches and recreational games, and educating the kids about sportsmanship, respect and fair play within sport.
