Why this internship?
The Sport Mobility Project offers young athletes the chance to gain valuable and relevant qualifications through sporting internships. This program has proven to be successful in the development of talented athletes as it gives students the opportunity to build their confidence in coaching as they explore a variety of teaching techniques through adaptable sporting situations.
Students will provide structured training in a wide variety of sporting activities and personal development initiatives, covering issues concerning lifestyle, communication, fitness and health. FU International Academy welcomes all athletes to participate in this program – from boxers and golfers to basketball and fencing players! – while giving them the chance to explore the tropical island of Tenerife through different leisure activities and group excursions.
Athletes start this program with a one-week basic Spanish course in order to linguistically prepare for their work experience, specifically learning language associated with sports and coaching. After completing the language preparation, participants spend 2 to 4 weeks at their work placements in high schools, gyms or sport centers. Here, students work hands-on with local students and clients as they plan activities, oversee development and provide constructive feedback, which is guided and evaluated by qualified sporting instructors.
So join us in Tenerife, learn the best sporting practices of the day, and take home unforgettable memories as you go for the gold and pursue your dreams!
The costs of the mobility projects are covered by Erasmus+ funds and FU Academy offers full service and organization of your stay in Tenerife. This includes the completion of necessary paperwork required for Erasmus+ projects, as well as airport transportation and accommodation either in shared apartments or one of our partnered hotels.
