You could join a volunteer team and make a huge difference in the rural schools and villages of Fiji by coaching sports. You will lead grass roots sports coaching sessions each day as we organise PE lessons in the primary schools as well as visiting more remote communities to lead ‘sports outreach clinics’ and even helping to establish leagues, inter-school competitions and an end of project sports day. With no PE within the school curriculum in Fiji, our projects are in direct partnership with the Fijian Ministry of Youth and Sport and the Fiji National Sports Commission. We work in some of the poorest areas and most disadvantaged schools to introduce the first ever sports equipment and practices. Whatever your sporting interest, we’d love to include this in our daily coaching sessions.
Watch our video and see how you could make a difference through sport and what our volunteers thought of playing and coaching different sports in Fiji.
In a country where sport can lift and unite the nation, many of the most talented players are never discovered. For children living in rural villages, your coaching assistance will provide the chance to learn sporting skills for the first time. Whatever your sporting interest, let us know and we can use your skills to make the best impact to sports development in the rural communities.
The aim is to introduce Fijian children to a whole host of sports, during daily PE lessons and after school clubs. Many of these sports are being introduced to the children for the first time. We provide the equipment to develop Rugby, Football, Netball, Hockey, Rounders, Volleyball, Cricket, Athletics and much more.
Fijian sport, especially at youth level, longs for some organisation, structure and the introduction of basic equipment. Bring your experiences and match the children’s enthusiasm to learn, run around and have fun. Organise inter school fixtures and coach children’s teams to tournaments.

A truly incredible, heartwarming and rewarding experience. The Fijian family I stayed with were so welcoming and friendly, allowing me to experience the Fijian way of life from cooking to traditional crafts and even coconut husking! The TP leaders live in the same village as you which is great as support is there 24/7, one of several reasons why I chose to go with TP. The project gave us the opportunity to teach in two local primary schools across various year groups. I especially enjoyed teaching lacrosse as this was a completely new and exciting sport for the children and am so grateful for TP arranging lacrosse sticks to be sent all the way to Fiji so I could do this! I wish I could do the project all over again.
