Sport is almost South Africa’s national religion – it transcends race, politics, and cultural groups and unites the country in a way that little else does. For many young disadvantaged South Africans sport is a way to avoid street time and criminal activity. It is an essential part of the DNA of the country, which makes South Africa an exceptionally exciting place to which to a sports management internship.

There’s every form of summer sport you can expect from a country with a surplus of sunshine and wide-open space – from horse-riding, volleyball, rock climbing, mountain biking, canoeing to the country’s most famous sports, golf, surfing, tennis, rugby, cricket, swimming, hockey and soccer/football. South Africa has bred world champions among its swimmers, surfers, athletes, golfers, boxers, gymnasts, tennis players, and more.
