North America

north-america-continent-map

When one thinks of North America it is easy to associate it with Canada and the USA, forgetting about the smaller countries that also make up this vast continent, not to mention the cluster of beautiful islands around the Caribbean. Sport has been developed to a high standard throughout but there is still a lack of resource in the smaller emerging nations and this is where we are putting our sporting focus.

Our work centres around the grass routes end of sport giving children the opportunity to participate in the game, hoping that one day they might make it onto the international stage. A sports coaching project in the Caribbean really is the perfect way to travel in paradise while volunteering with Caribbean children who are eager to play sports and be coached in sport.

  • "The sports tour that Sporting Opportunities arranged for us was perfect. South Africa was a great country and having the mix of playing against locals as well as coaching sport to kids in the townships was a nice balance. Doing two weeks in South Africa has made a number of us want to come back for a longer stint on one of your 5 week volunteer coaching projects so look out for us. Thanks to all involved".

  • "Taking the girls on this two week hockey tour was excellent. It was the first time that any of us had been to South Africa and the team made us feel extremely welcome and comfortable. You pack so much into such a short period which totally tired us out but apart from being great fun will be a fond memory for years to come. We'll certainly be looking at coming away with you again".
    Sarah Jackson: PE Teacher , Volleyball, South Africa
     
  • "A well organised trip with a difference. Combining playing and coaching as well as all the cultural things you put on for us was a great idea. To even get to a Springboks Rugby game was a special treat for the lads on this tour so thanks for going the extra mile to make this happen for us".
