Caribbean Coaching

Gap Year Projects in the Caribbean



Volunteer Abroad on your Gap Year

Caribbean Coaching is an award-winning volunteer organisation that have been running projects in St Lucia since 2011. Our aim is to help develop sport at both a national and grassroots level. If you are looking for a new adventure, one that combines travel and sport within a project that makes a difference then we have a project for you!

Our sports projects are perfect for gap years, summer vacations, career breaks and volunteer holidays abroad. We work to develop rugby, football, netball, cricket, swimming, basketball and tennis on the gorgeous islands of St Lucia. You can also volunteer as a teaching assistant, or take part in one of our internships.

Volunteering during your gap year gives you the chance to experience a new culture from a unique point of view. You will be able to immerse yourself and make a real difference to the lives of children in local communities.

You don’t need to be a qualified coach to volunteer on one of our projects, just enthusiastic and passionate. We aim to tailor our projects to you, to give you a unique coaching opportunity abroad. It is your gap year and we want you to get the most from it, whether you wish to coach mainly the school and community groups with an emphasis on fun, or run skills development sessions with national and club teams.
