We work together with the United Through Sports Thailand organization in preparing sports coaching and health care sessions for children in Thailand. The Sports Coaching project takes place at several schools in the Singburi area.

At these schools, you will add an essential element to the current sport, physical education, and health curriculum for the children.

This program gives children the opportunity to get more involved with sports, as there is currently only one hour of sports lessons a week in the existing curriculum. It also hopes to introduce new sports to the children that they would not likely get involved in otherwise.

The training sessions consist mainly of team sports such as soccer, netball, volleyball, rugby and so on. In the school’s current sports curriculum, the boys are trained in soccer and the girls in volleyball. With this program, we are aiming to broaden the types of sports that these children can participate in.

Furthermore, we also give the children health lessons on personal health care and other important issues such as gender equality. All elements of the program take place on the sports field in a fun, active and interactive way. Using sports can aid the personal development of any child as it promotes the social interaction, knowledge and passion which are all life skills that lead to the pathway of success.

A high level of interest in sports and a positive attitude will be of great help for you work the children.
