Rugby Coach Volunteering in India and Sri Lanka


Rugby is one of the world’s fastest growing sports in all its forms: 15s, 7s and Touch Rugby

It was pointed out to us once, during our travels abroad, that coaches are always in short supply to support and encourage youngsters. This is especially true in countries where rugby is still a very new sport. Our interest was piqued and we had to help…

Could you help?

  • If you play rugby.
  • If you have coaching experience.
  • If you enjoy foreign travel.

Would you enjoy providing encouragement to youngsters who could be the rugby stars of the future?

If so why not play a part in developing rugby internationally?

A Voluntary Initiative

At NEI UK we like to be more than tour operators!  We are based in Wales where rugby is the national sport after all, so a great starting point when trying to identify those who would be willing to travel to various countries to share their rugby experience and coaching skills and encourage these ambitious youngsters to improve their rugby skills and knowledge of the game.

For our part  with our long experience as tour operators, we can assure you that time spent in a foreign country will provide you with an unforgettable and life-enhancing experience. 

This is a voluntary Initiative but one which lends itself to volunteers seeking sponsorship for themselves. It is not a holiday but you will be able to enjoy the chosen country in a way which will be as pleasurable, perhaps more so. One certain outcome will be that those involved will receive heartfelt thanks and appreciation for all your efforts and undoubtedly life-long friendships will be forged

Naturally, as we are tour operators, we hope that this Initiative will encourage those individuals taking part and their family members and friends to experience the chosen country for themselves and as such we offer superb tours within those countries. We can also ‘tailor-make’ a tour to make sure that your time abroad will be exactly as you planned and hoped it would be.

What to expect…

  • Anyone volunteering to become involved in the rugby coaching Initiative will be staying in good basic accommodation and will be able to spend time experiencing life as it is lived by local people
  • Ex-pats who have given over their lives to helping the youngsters will generally be on hand to provide extra support
  • The cost to you will be kept to a minimum and our bonding and insurance arrangements will provide you with an assurance that you will be fully protected the whole time you are abroad
