Football in St Lucia

Football is by far the most popular sport in the region with the highest participation levels, which makes it the perfect vehicle to tackle key social issues effecting the region's youth.

In recent times, Saint Lucian Football has been making their presence felt in the international arena. The national team has shown excellent performance against the other Caribbean countries. It has shown better performance in the recent years against other international teams. Both women's and men's national teams have participated in the qualifying round of the World Cup Football. For instance, the women's team made a significant attempt to qualify for the 2003 women's world Cup and men's team participated in 2006 Men's World Cup qualification tournament.

This placement is for anyone who loves ‘the beautiful game’ and would like to play or coach in a culture alien to anywhere else in the world. Your work with children will be done in schools, teaching technical skills and fundamentals of the game through Futsal with an emphasis on fun. Meanwhile, you will be running sessions for an adult team as coaching staff but also have the option to play, if desired. Further work will include supporting FIFA Grassroots project sessions and coaching.

Another side to our work is the training of local coaches, we have recently supported the formation of three new youth groups across the island, and you will aid the development of their current coaches while working within these groups.
