The Japan Foundation Asia Center collaborates with The Japan Football Association (JFA) and J.League to develop the Programmes for encouraging various exchanges and the development of the next generations. We aim to disseminate "Asian Sports" to the world working together with Asian countries to enhance sport culture by creating exchange opportunities among a broad range of people via sport and reinforcing the networking and development of the future leaders of Asian sport cultures.This project expands the wave of exchange across the boundaries of nationality, gender and generation by hosting football training workshops for children, people with disabilities and people in refugee camps all over Asia. We work together to reinforce the human resources development to widen and strengthen the network among the future leaders of the Asian Football Culture, including football players, referees, coaches, journalists and management personnel in Asia through the invitation of national teams to youth training camps and dispatchment of football coaches to Asian countries.
Feedback from :
”Knowledgeable instructors and staff from Japan gave us many new insights and experiences. We had fun together and were very happy the entire time. Now we love Japan and the Japanese people even more than we did before."We got tips to easily create an environment where the kids listen to us with interest and excitement during our coaching. That way of coaching was quite new to us."
