India: Volunteer Cricket Coaching Work-Experience Placements

UPDATE: India Programs Closed in 2016

Overview

Volunteer with school children at a school in India

In a country that offers so much diversity in lifestyle, religion, and race, sporting events in India unify everyone. Cricket is by far the most popular sport in the country; ever since the first game was played nearly three centuries ago Indian people have reveled in its tactics and skills.

You don't have to look far to see children practicing in the street with makeshift bats, balls and stumps. The fact that most children will play at any opportunity shows their great interest and that your contributions as a coach will be well received.

Coach Cricket to Children in India with Projects Abroad

We feel it’s important that children understand the basics of cricket before progressing on to the more difficult skills and techniques. By embracing this commitment at a grassroots level, our sport placements in India work with many schools in Delhi. Your role will be a mixture of passing on knowledge of the game, giving practical coaching advice, and participating in training sessions.

Your Role Volunteering Abroad on a Cricket Project in India

Gap Year volunteer coaches a cricket team at a school in India

Being a cricket coach in India means you should help improve the performances of each individual as well as the whole team. Every player is different and will need your specialized care and attention to improve their performance. To make a team successful, you’ll need to foster a spirit of trust and cooperation by getting the individuals playing for each other.

If the clunk of leather on willow, the ability to spot a googly or the scream of "Howzat?" is in your blood, then look no further than a Projects Abroad Cricket coaching placement in India.

Twice a month Care, Teaching, and Sports volunteers join forces to serve the community in Jaipur. The teams work together to tackle a variety of community issues, for example the setting up of a library, the creation of learning tools, or participation in local sporting events. Volunteers are welcome to suggest other ways in which they would like to help. Monthly workshops support volunteers and provide training related to their work at placements. 

This project is available for less than a month if you don't have time to join us for a month or more. This project has been selected by our local colleagues as being suitable for shorter durations for both the host community and the volunteer. Although you will gain valuable cultural insight and work intensely within the local community please be aware that you may not be able to make the same impact as someone participating for a longer period.
