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.

The Accommodation

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.

Student testimonials

  • I developed skills such as confidence, leadership, problem solving, creativity and independence. I learnt to use my initiative and creativity to develop coaching sessions with limited resources.

    Alex, Sports student, St Lucia
  • Basketball is my passion. I have loved seeing how it is coached in St Lucia. They only have outdoor courts and if it rains, they don’t go home, they have special rollers to dry the court. I have picked up new techniques and drills that I can use back at home. I will miss the children so much and hope to come back and see their development. The coach couldn’t have been nicer and more welcoming and helpful.
