People who have a passion for playing sports as well as travelling can combine their two loves by getting involved in sports coaching abroad.
Taking part in voluntary projects across the world gives you the chance to participate in a range of different activities, whether you'd like to teach English, get involved in conservation work or build homes for communities.
You can also help by teaching kids how to improve their athletic skills by coaching them in various sports.
This provides them with valuable skills and gives children a sense of fun, ambition, competitiveness and lets them learn how to work as a team.
And it also means you can play football or surf while enjoying a trip of a lifetime!
All about sports coaching abroad with i-to-i
There are many options available to those who wish to volunteer abroad by helping youngsters learn how to play their favourite sports.
Choose from a wide selection of trips at i-to-i that enable you to get active on your travelling adventures in countries around the world.
If you fancy yourself as the next football star you may want to take part in soccer coaching programmes in Argentina for between two and 12 weeks. Or, if you're a pro at martial arts then you can work with disadvantaged children in Brazil's Rio by teaching them the art of capoeira.
For those that are keen on surfing there are opportunities for you to develop water sports skills in beautiful nations, where you can make the most of azure waters and tropical shores.
Or, if you want to learn to surf abroad yourself, then why not embark on a surfing course in Costa Rica, Bali or Rio?
You can combine your interest in developing this new sporting ability with other voluntary projects, such as saving turtles, taking part in conservation work or teaching children, for a rewarding experience, as well as a fun one.
