US coach

For student-athletes from American universities taking part for the first time

Applications for Summer 2023 are now open and will be accepted through January 29th.

 

We were able to carry out in-person camps this past summer, quite successfully.  We are excited to be able to return to full strength for Summer 2023, running a full slate of camps on site in Vietnam.

You will be as much a teacher and a mentor, but we call you "coach" for simplicity.  Each coach, along with their Vietnamese and American teammates, co-teaches one sport and one subject to all the children, and mentors one team of children closely in life skills.

 

Genuine friendships and working closely together to best inspire the youth each day are at the center of what Coach for College has always been all about and we look forward to welcoming you to the CFC family next summer.


Passports must be valid 6 months past the date of return from Vietnam.  Renewing a passport takes time, so we encourage you to start the renewal process now to avoid added fees to expedite it later.  Please contact Seth Napier with any questions or for further details.

Vietnamese coach

For Vietnamese university students taking part for the first time

You will be as much a teacher and a mentor, but we call you "coach" for simplicity.  Each coach, along with their American and Vietnamese teammates, co-teaches one academic subject and one sport to all the children, and mentors one team of children more closely in life skills.  In addition to teaching, you will serve an important role, interpreting between the Americans and children.

Applications for Summer 2022 have now closed.
