Global Athlete Project（GAP）established in 2011 by Eiji Kawashima, a Japan Soccer national team goal keeper, now playing in the France League.
■To spread enlightenment of the importance of the commanding languages in order to play active parts in global community, and to support acquiring of language skills for Japanese athletes who are trying to play globally.
■To provide the environment where children can learn languages and have fun through various sports activities, and to foster global-minded world citizens.
■To support a second career for retired professional athletes who have played and participated in a global environment,with fluent language skills.
GAP started “Soccer x English” school in July 2014 as one of language support programs to help children learn English through fun soccer training. 16 schools have been already opened in Tokyo, Chiba, Saitama and Kanagawa. Moreover, GAP developed and produced an English learning drill book and a mobile phone application, both now on sale, and is going to carry on a variety of ‘Sports x Language Learning’ projects.
【Message from Global Athlete Project】
“When I was a child, ten minutes were the maximum that I could concentrate while studying at my desk, but I could go on for many hours with any sport activities. I imagine that the combination of sports which children like and English learning is the best way to make children interested in learning, continue learning and improve their skills. I am sure there are a lot of children out there just like me. ‘Sports x Language’ projects are coming from my experience, and we are trying to offer many kinds of projects along the line.” –Ryusuke Tanaka Founder of GAP
【We need you!】
We need soccer coaches from various nationalities for our ‘Soccer x English’ schools.
Especially, we look for the coach who can work with us at Kawaguchi(Monday) and Machida Sagamihara(Friday). Also, we look for the coaches at other locations as well.
In addition, we open Cheerleading/Cheer dance x English’ schools. We look for the coach who can work with us at ■Kachidoki(Monday)
This school will start from the end of June. And more schools are going to open then.
The purpose of this school is not to improve techniques of playing soccer, but to provide a fun English learning environment. Children can learn English in an enjoyable way playing soccer and they will build global-mindedness.
Why don’t you join us in helping kids enjoy sport and learning English?
Coaching (soccer with English) kids (kindergarten and elementary school ) based on the mission and philosophy of Global Athlete Project.
