SPORTS LOVERS, SHARE YOUR PASSION!!
We witness that sports, beyond being good at living a healthy life, seek to bring people together, no matter where they come from. Many young people generally use sport to disconnect from the negative things around them. But also for others and especially for children and young people it is an opportunity to achieve something and be someone in the near future.
Well organized sports training can have a positive impact on vulnerable communities and especially on all children and young people. Not only is there the physical part, but also the opportunity to improve communication skills and teamwork, without leaving behind the joy of enjoying a moment with people who share your dreams.
ACTIVITIES TO BE CARRIED OUT
First, the role of the volunteers is to help the local trainers in the different activities to be carried out. In addition to supporting children and young people in their daily practice schedule with local players. The volunteer must also create and organize sports activities that help children and young people to integrate. For these reasons the volunteer will participate in the following activities that are carried out:
- Support coaches in technical assistance during training sessions
- Promote talks and sports training with a social focus
- Organize sports championships
- Interact with children and young people to understand what the weaknesses are that could be improved.
- Collaborate with the cleaning and maintenance of the playing field and its surroundings
In the volunteer program, you will be able to provide our children and young people with skills and knowledge from an active point of view and focused on their physical and mental well-being.
