Our company developed the learning support activity “Terakoya Iki-Iki Generation”, which was started in Ofunato City in 2012 to support the disaster areas in eastern Japan, and since 2016, we have been holding “Soccer Classes in Ofunato” as support through sports. There were 94 entries from elementary and junior high school students in the city, and soccer instruction was given by Kawasaki Frontale schools and popularization coaches.
The children were seriously engaged in teaching soccer techniques, which are more difficult than usual. At the end of each section, there was a rock-paper-scissors tournament where you could win uniforms signed by Kawasaki Frontale players.

Participant (3rd year junior high school student)
It wasn’t a practice that I usually do, but it was a high-level practice and I felt it was a little difficult. I was able to learn once again how to pack one-on-one defense. I would like to apply what I learned today in my soccer so that I can make good decisions when I am attacking, such as when I am attacking, and when I am trying to get past the opponents.
Kawasaki Frontale Coach (Takahiro Ogawa, general coach of the school and extension department)
My impression is that the children were honest and positively accepted what we were trying to say. The kids were trying to absorb a lot. I have been participating every time since 2016, so I was happy to see a child who had participated in elementary school become a junior high school student, and because it continues, I can meet again. I want you to take advantage of what you have absorbed today in your future soccer activities.
