Our participants will stay close to Castries in St Lucia and can participate in range of sports training and coaching activities.
Placements on offer:
Our host partner in St Lucia is United Through Sport.
Participants will be involved with various multi-sport community coaching sessions with local young people. Sports activities can be offered in rugby, cricket, netball, football, basketball, tennis and swim teaching. They will also have the opportunity to play sports in the afternoons, evenings and on Saturdays.
During free time, participants can get involved in cultural and adventure activities to experience and enjoy wider aspects of local Caribbean life.
Participants stay in a large dorm-style guest house with plenty of space. The house contains seven air-conditioned bedrooms, and shared en-suite bathrooms between every two rooms.
The kitchen area is fully equipped and is suitable for multiple people cooking at once. The majority of in-house social activity takes place either in the communal area, the vast recreational space within the compound and the balcony that looks over it.
“The overall experience brought my team together in a much closer way as we did what we all loved, but away from home together. My future plan is to go to university to study on a Strength and Conditioning course, to pursue my goal of becoming a professional trainer. I now know that I can live away from home and support myself.”
“I enjoyed the football in Seville because it is completely different from the football in England. The local people there were also very friendly; they treated us like we were a family. The city was amazing it had many good tourist spots that we could all go and visit. The atmosphere was great , I felt safe anytime I was walking about to explore the area.”
