Sports and recreation Placement
STAESA coaching program creates a platform of positive learning environment, where the children learn sportsmanship, fundamental skills, teamwork, and responsibility. The coaching program is designed to include students, coaches, trainers, retired footballers, physiotherapist and one with or without coaching skills.
Depending on your interest, skills and studies our program participants work with the following:
Athletes - In developing the athletes into their full potential. You are responsible for training athletes in a sport by analyzing their performances, instructing in relevant skills and by providing encouragement.
Football teams - As a volunteer coach, you plan and supervise training sessions to develop general fitness and specific soccer skills. You will manage a team of coaches who focus on specific areas, such as defensive or offensive play, or goalkeeping. During training sessions, they practice tactics for specific plays such as free kicks or corner kicks.
Basketball teams - As a volunteer basketball coach, typically encompasses the improvement of individual and team offensive and defensive skills, as well as overall physical conditioning. You will also have the responsibility to improve their team by player development, strategy, and in-game management.
Volleyball/netball team - Organize and execute effective team practice and coaching. Assess team players' skills and assign team positions. Evaluate own and opposing team capabilities to determine winning game strategy. Participate in scheduling, planning, and travel arrangements for away competition. STAESA program aimed at strengthening physical training programs in schools, orphanages and in the communities in South Africa, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Tanzania and Uganda,
The program also includes taking kids from the streets, showcasing their talents, organizing football games to support a campaign against drug abuse, child abuse, women abuse and child trafficking. You will be amazed to see the great amount of sportsmen and women that are left ideal in the orphanages hence we are busy with an initiative to develop and strengthen programs that bring all the orphanages in the communities together in sports activities. We will like you to be part of this in the countries of your choice.
Do you recall being small with your parents and being in nursery school when your days were filled with making dirt playing all sort of outdoor games including football and running everywhere because it was more fun than walking? Why not relive those glory years by giving back to the disadvantaged children who are with or without parents, without love, hope and life. The kids are waiting for you on the field.
Resources are really in short supply here, but it’s amazing to see the children always happy and getting involved in anything fun! This is a life-changing experience program, very educational and full of fun! You will not like to go back to your country after the program. That is what happened to most of our volunteers.
