If you love sport and adventure, you’re in the right place. Sporting Opportunities gives you the chance to travel the world and combine your love of sport at the same time. Travel with other like-minded people and you could see yourself on a volunteer sports coaching project in Africa, Asia or South America or getting qualified as a ski or snowboard instructor in Canada. And if that is not enough and you fancy taking your sport to the next level then we have a range of playing and training opportunities abroad.
 
You don’t need to be a qualified coach. You don’t need to be a pro-sports star. You just need bags of enthusiasm and to be passionate about sport.

On top of this our many years of experience in the sports travel sector, has allowed us to develop some truly unique and extremely valuable sports internships abroad. These range from sports psychology, sports physiotherapy, sports management and sports film-making and media production.
 
Our sports trips are perfect for gap years, student holidays, internship and elective experience, work experience abroad, summer vacations, career breaks and volunteer holidays abroad. Our extensive range of sports on offer include football, soccer, rugby, cricket, hockey, netball, basketball, tennis, boxing, golf, baseball, martial arts, volleyball, ultimate frisbee, swimming, athletics, snowboarding, skiing, water-sports and more.
 
Sporting Opportunities also organises tailor made sports tours for schools, universities and club teams that allow you to play sports overseas as well as volunteer on sports projects in the local community.
 
So check out our sports projects, read our blog section, watch our sports videos, meet people on our Facebook page, connect through Instagram, contact us for a chat, sign-up to our sports newsletter and see where in the world you could be coaching or playing your favourite sport!
