The Drakensberg sports volunteer is specifically aimed at students studying sports, with experience playing high-level sports or those with a practical interest in sports or sports coaching.

The program is run only in selected months of the year. In 2014 the sports program will be running in January, February, June and September.

Volunteers assist with sports teaching at the local primary school - a task that is challenging and extremely rewarding, and otherwise would be non-existent. In addition, volunteers work with community sports teams (mostly soccer, netball, rugby and cricket) to develop skills, leagues, matches and games against other local teams. In addition, a small amount of time is spent with younger children at crèches and children’s homes developing mobility and swimming skills.

Sport is a medium through which underprivileged youth and children can develop psychological strength, the spirit of sportsmanship and teamwork. It has been proven that this can then tranform individuals and help with creating stronger community bonds and more socially-minded and progressive individuals and groups. Volunteering on the sports initiative is highly rewarding, and a great opportunity for sports students to volunteer and develop their own coaching skills and make lifelong friends.
