Are you passionate about sports?

Channel your athletic talents and expertise into serving others by volunteering to coach sports in Uganda, where netball and soccer hold special significance. You may also have the opportunity to participate in a sports coaching clinic, where you can impart the principles of rugby—a sport that instills unity and camaraderie among young athletes. In Uganda, engaging in sports not only cultivates valuable life skills but also promotes physical well-being in an enjoyable and effective manner.

Volunteer in Sports Coaching FAQs


Youth sports offer remarkable opportunities for young individuals to come together as a unified team, tackling challenges and obstacles with faith and perseverance. Through these endeavors, we aim to nurture the essential behavioral skills vital to a child’s holistic development. Research has shown that increased physical activity not only enhances a child’s mental and physical well-being but also positively impacts their academic performance. Moreover, participation in youth sports provides a joyful and enriching environment wherein young individuals can cultivate confidence and steer clear of harmful temptations such as substance abuse and criminal activities. Let us guide the youth towards the path of righteousness, instilling in them the values of teamwork, discipline, and faith, as we walk alongside them in their journey of growth and transformation.

Unfortunately, a considerable number of children in Uganda are deprived of opportunities to nurture their athletic talents. In a nation where resources are scarce and communities struggle to provide such programs, approximately half of the children endure extreme poverty. Moreover, many schools in Uganda do not incorporate physical education into their educational frameworks, and those that do often grapple with severely underfunded programs. As followers of Christ, it is our duty to extend our hands in compassion and support to these marginalized children, ensuring they receive the guidance and resources needed to flourish in all aspects of their lives.

Joining a KARIN volunteer program is a wonderful opportunity to answer the call of service in sports coaching! While specific qualifications may not be required to excel as a sports volunteer, there are certain skills worth honing for effective service in this field. Volunteers often find themselves leading after-school programs, where they can create enjoyable activities, set up obstacle courses, and teach sports like football. If you have prior experience coaching or playing a specific sport, you may also have the chance to assist a team in a local league as an assistant coach. Ultimately, our aim is to empower youth through artistic and educational endeavors, guided by our Christian values.
