Sports Coach Volunteer in Mongolia
Come travel into this gorgeous open land of Genghis Khan. Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia offers you all the active energy you will need on this project. Contribute your sporting skills to young energetic children and train them to bring out their best such that they can develop their physical fitness, learn the sport and compete in a healthy way.
Learn a sport or teach one if you choose to work on the Mongolia Teaching or Sports Coaching project in Ulaanbaatar. Sports education plays a crucial role in the lives of the young Mongolians, with wrestling being the most popular sport.
The sport project was created keeping these factors in mind and was designed in such a way that your interest in sports, enthusiasm to share your knowledge, and energy could be spent meaningfully on the playground. Children from the nearby community come after school hours and are grouped in teams. Along with a local coach, you can impart training to these budding sportsmen, give them workouts and at the end of the session enjoy some refreshments with them. We hope someday these young sportsmen will proudly represent their country on an international field.We encourage you to be creative and propose different sports-related activities depending on the students’ ages, likes and interests.

Trip Country Info
Capital: Ulaanbaatar or Ulan Bator
Time zone: MST (UTC +7/+8). MST (UTC +8/+9) in Summer
Mongolia is a landlocked sovereign state in East Asia between China and Russia. Its area is roughly equivalent with the historical territory of Outer Mongolia. With only 1.7 people per km², Mongolia has the lowest population density among all independent countries in the world, and it is this vast and majestic emptiness that is bringing the traveller, as it does, into a close communion with nature and its nomadic inhabitants. Ulaanbaatar or Ulan Bator is Mongolia’s capital and largest city. The city is not part of any aimag (province), and its population as of 2015 was over 1.4 million; almost half of the country’s total population. The city was founded in 1639 as a nomadic Buddhist monastic centre. In 1778, it settled permanently at its present location, the junction of the Tuul and Selbe rivers. The Mongolian capital elicits as much shock as it does excitement.
