Trip Summary

See full itinerary

Loved throughout the country, football is Ghana's number one sport, and it's not exactly hard to see why! (Who doesn't like a good kick about every now and again?) 

 

Working with a collective of local youth clubs and schools, our football coaching programme is great for sports fans and wannabe coaches alike. When you arrive at the project you'll be assigned a team, and moving forward you'll be there to coach them to sporting glory, from heading up the training session on the beach to being chief supporter on the sidelines of a match.

 

Be prepared to roll your sleeves up, there's coaching to be done!

Destination info

Ghana is in West Africa and renowned for having the warmest, friendliest people. It borders the Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Togo and the Atlantic Ocean. Ghana is considered one of the safest places in Africa, with some of the friendliest people on the continent.

 

Ghanaians are traditionally very welcoming people and they pride themselves on the peaceful state, with very low crime rate.

 

Accra is Ghana’s capital city and estimated to have a population of around two million. Accra is a large, sprawling city that is developing very fast. It is situated on the coast, with a port and several beach hotels where tourists may stay. Like any African Capital it is large, dusty, energetic, dirty, busy, and yet charming and unique!

  • Location: Accra

Situated in the buzzing capital of Accra, our project gives volunteers the chance to develop their love for the beautiful game by coaching to Ghanians. Football has become a national sport over the past few years, especially after The Ghanan's rose through the ranks during the 2010 World Cup- and so you're sure to come across enthuisastic, bubbly young people who love the sport during your time here!

 

The football teams come from a variety of different backgrounds, including schools, youth groups and clubs, all located within Accra. Variety is the spice of life- so expect to be coaching different abilities throughout your stay!

Ghanaians are traditionally very welcoming people and they pride themselves on the peaceful state, with very low crime rate.

  • Location: Accra

You'll be first assigned your team when you arrive in Accra, and the fun all starts from there. The teams do vary in ability and age- from the U12, U14 to U17, and you'll be responsible for putting together the team's training programme as well as attending all of the training sessions and matches. Fancy giving your team the tough task of laps around the track, or fitting in press ups between their dribbling tasks? It's all down to you, so you'll have to adapt your training style to suit your new team.

 

It does get quite competitive between the volunteers during the placement, as of course they all want their teams to knock the other off the top spot! You're sure to have a lot of fun during your time as a new coaching pro and as your team will be putting their trust in you, you'll feel more and more like their manager. It's an incredibly worthwhile and fufilling experience!

For the first day or so of your programme, you will have a fantastic orientation to really help you get settled into your new surroundings and get to grips with how things work in Ghana. The orientation will cover all of the things you need to know in Ghana- and if you have any burning questions, this'll be your chance to ask them! Additionally, you'll also be taken on a tour of Accra including a visit to the local shops, bars and one of our favourite places, the awesome beach!

 

You'll receive lots of assistance during your time on the project; volunteers are not left alone and you will work alongside our in country team and local coaches as well as the other volunteer too.

During your free time you'll have the chance to explore Accra, and further afield, the rest of Ghana. You'll have approx 2 days off a week to get stuck in to the local culture, so as well as hitting the shops in Accra and having a good time with the nightlife in the centre, you could sit back and relax on the beautiful Ghanan beaches. Such a hard life...

 

There's loads of other cool things to check out whilst you're in Ghana too, from the gorgeous sandy beaches to the lush jungles and the ancient ruins. If you wanted, you could even take an African safari!

What were the highlights of your trip?

The highlights of my trip were working with the children who are very talented at football, smart and extremely fun to be around, travelling around parts of the country which was amazing. The Volta Region in particular was very beautiful and a must go place for anyone who travels to Ghana. Visiting the castles of Cape Coast and El Mina was an unforgettable experience. Working in a local school was very fun and the children were fantastic.

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

Make the most of your time volunteering, travel around the country when possible and to try the local cuisines.

Would you travel with our company again?

yes

What were the highlights of your trip?

Met some cool people during my time in Ghana, but my highlight was without any doubt hanging around with the kids sponsored by the charity that i was staying with. Being able to interact with them, teach them, play fun games like maths bingo, and just generally having a good time was fantastic!
