Sports DTS

Starts Every: October

In response to COVID-19 restriction, we’ve had to temporarily scale back from the 20+ DTSes we usually run each year. Read more about our usual range here or find out about our upcoming July 2021 DTS and October 2021 DTS!

Unleash your full potential through growing in relationship with God as you dive deep into six months of intensive discipleship. Harness the love of sport to bridge language and cultural barriers, to build relationships and open the door to preach the gospel. 

We start out with three months at our mission centre in Perth. We’ll focus on topics like hearing God’s voice, evangelism, spiritual authority and missions. We will learn how to apply truth though lectures, small groups, urban outreach, intercession and amazing times of worship and getting out together to engage in a variety of sports. We will get involved in our local community through different sport initiatives, while also learning how to share the gospel on the streets of Perth.

We push our limits on outreach the next three months, tackling the challenge of bringing the gospel to the nations. It may take you to a soccer match on a small field in a cramped slum, basketball in one of the megacities within the Indian Ocean Gateway, or volleyball in a remote mountain village. 

Wherever we go, we put what we’ve learned into practice as we preach the gospel and meet practical needs. We’ll use the tool of sport to serve, build relationships and share the love of Jesus with the people and communities we meet. The goal is that the lost will know Jesus and His ways will be known. 

We finish up with a week back in Perth, sharing the stories of the amazing things God has done and looking ahead to what He has next. We’re convinced life is not a spectator sport – God has a place for you in His purposes!


A DTS opens doors to all kinds of training and missions opportunities! We invite you to get further training at YWAM Perth through courses such as our Bible School for the Nations, or join staff to continue the journey of serving Jesus in the nations with an initiative like our Sports Ministry.

During our time in Cambodia our favourite time of the day was when we got to coach a group of local youth in soccer. The practices would consist of drills, a game and at the end we would share Bible stories or testimonies from our lives of God’s power. The group of youth that came were only there to learn soccer and weren’t Christians themselves, but they got more and more curious about God as we shared after each practice. Eventually after one of the practices, we shared about the healing power of God and asked if any of them had physical injuries or personal situations they wanted prayer for. One by one, they put up their hands and asked for prayer. Seven of them where healed on the soccer field from hand hip, back, ankle pain. They were all amazed that the God that we shared with them, also cared for and could heal them.
