Our very own Sports Academy was created keeping these factors in mind and was designed in such a way that your interest in sports and the enthusiasm to share your knowledge and energy could come and spend meaningful time in the playground. Children from the nearby community come after school hours and are grouped in teams. So, along with a local coach, you can impart your training to these budding sportsmen, give them workouts and at the end of the session enjoy some refreshments with them. We hope some day these young sportsmen will proudly represent their country on an international field. Sports in a child’s life is of great importance for his/her physical development and will affect their future. We encourage you to be creative and propose different sports-related activities depending on the students’ ages, likes and interests. Learn a sport or teach one if you chose to work on the Fiji Teaching or Sports Coaching project in Pacific Harbour, you’ll soon see that education is a crucial part of achieving sustainable development. By teaching in these communities, you can make a real difference to the lives of young people growing up in Fiji, and learn about life in Fiji as a teacher. Sports education plays a crucial role in the lives of the young Fijians, with Rugby being the most popular sport. The program activities could be either one or all the activities such as teach sports rules, teach basics of games, show examples of sports, organize sport related activities, play sports with children, teach respect and fairness in sports. The objective is to teach and educate through various sports to different age groups of children in different levels. The participants are free to be creative.
