Gap Year Sports

Rugby Players

As part of your gap year you could participate in a vast range of sports courses: Gap year watersports (BCU training, surfing, diving, sailing etc); Mountain sports (Climbing, MLTB training and cycling); Winter sports (Snowboarding, skiing); And traditional sports (Football, cricket, rugby etc). There are lots of outdoor education courses to choose from right here in the UK, or you might choose to get a support job abroad with a company like PGL who offer you the chance to train whilst you work (or ‘Earn While You Learn’ as some companies put it). Similar to good ski and snowboard instructor courses, the focus is not usually on creating Olympic stars, but to train high quality teachers to deliver expert instruction. All courses will include an aspect of first aid training but you can take specialist courses independently.

If you are not bothered about instructing, you can still use a sports gap year to take your sport to a new level. Play football on specialist camps in South America and Africa, or qualify as a PADI diver in incredible Venezuela. These opportunities won’t just give you an unbeatable GAP experience, but a solid skill for the future too.
