Football Coaching in Ghana
Football is the national sport in Ghana. Given the 'Black Stars' - the Ghanaian team's - successful performance in the 2010 World Cup, football in Ghana can only continue to get bigger and better. Football in Ghana is everywhere! Whether football flags on cars, stickers in taxis, locals in football jerseys or kids playing in the street, it is immediately apparent that Ghanaians are extremely passionate about football.
Our football placements in Ghana provide an opportunity for all young players to develop their basic skills and techniques with the hope that some may achieve the success of Premiership stars Michael Essien or Stephen Appiah. There will also be the opportunity to see one of Ghana's many top division club teams - like Kotoko and Hearts of Oak - in action. Volunteers sometimes take young players to games to help with their footballing development and to provide a well earned break from their sport coaching.
The project start from 2 weeks upwards.
In this pioneering new project, first-time Projects Abroad football-coaching volunteers have the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of a youth academy. Volunteers will train in the mornings with a local football squad and in the afternoons will work with a youth team, giving them the benefit of your newly acquired coaching knowledge and skills. Please see the timetable below.
This project is a fantastic chance to improve your skills and ability whilst also helping local children to develop their game. If you are good enough you may even be selected to play for one of the local third division teams!
Volunteers with more experience, those holding a Football Association Coaching certificate for instance, will be able to get involved in the coaching from day one. You will still be able to benefit from our support and guidance, and get the chance to compete for selection to a local Ghanaian team!
