Benefits

We don’t like to blow our own trumpet, but we offer trips that no one else can match... Here are just a few of the benefits of undertaking a Sport Lived programme:

A Play Sport programme tailored to suit your needs

We’ll request information on your playing career to date and the type of programme you’re looking to undertake overseas. We’ll then handpick the best sports club for you to join. We only work with sports clubs who offer great facilities, awesome social scenes and a warm welcome to overseas players.

We can get you paid coaching work in Australia

We’re the only company in the UK who can guarantee you a paid coaching placement in Australia. You’ll work with youngsters from top schools and clubs and earn around £10 to £12 an hour. For a slightly different coaching experience, we also arrange voluntary coaching placements in South Africa.

A home away from home

When you travel with us you’ll share your accommodation with other Sport Lived participants so you’ll have a ready-made group of friends as soon as you arrive. You can choose to stay in Standard Accommodation (hostels/lodges) or in Premium Accommodation (4 star apartments). Whichever one you choose, you’ll get a comfortable, relaxing and secure place to lay your head.

The Sport Lived network

We have an unrivalled presence in the southern hemisphere. We work in cities across Australia, New Zealand and South Africa and have links with the widest range of sports clubs, academies and coaching opportunities. Whether you want to coach gifted youngsters, train with a top class club or just have fun playing with a local team the Sport Lived network offers something for everyone.

A helping hand and a friendly face

Reliable, friendly and gorgeous (well, we think so) your mentor be in touch before you leave home to say hi and answer any questions you might have. They’ll be waiting at the airport to welcome you and are a constant presence throughout your programme, organising regular social events and helping with any issues during your stay.
