Training at Coerver Setagaya School.

The U-15 players from Coerver Coaching Singapore Academy came to visit Tokyo, Japan. They enjoyed the training and got to experience what other Coerver players could not. Also three of the players were astonished by the fine touches and quickness by the Japanese players and vis versa, Japanese players were surprised equally by the strength, aggressiveness and the will to win every fight. Not only players but parents as well were surprised at the discipline taught to younger children in Japan. Well behaved and well mannered.

Question: First of all, what was your first impression participating in the training with U-15 Coerver Coaching Japan players?
Answer (All): We all enjoyed the training and had lots of fun! We usually train at a larger field so it was a bit strange at first. However as time passed on we all gradually adapted to the surface difference at Setagaya School. Most of all we really enjoyed the opportunity to play soccer in Japan with the same age group and gained a lot of experience.

Question: That’s great to hear!! What is your impression on Japanese players?
Answer (All): We were all impressed at the highly disciplined the Japanese players were however, we also sensed a bit of shyness when interacting with them.

Question: I couldn’t agree more, did you every feel any difference towards the play style with the Japanese players compared to when you play back home?
Answer (All): Yes, they have an ability of quick agility and speed when they are put into tight situation. Also they are very skillful with great touch with the ball.
