Normalization through sports
TRACOS is a Tokyo-based nonprofit organization that exists to improve the lives of all affected by developmental disabilities/difficulties. We do this by creating opportunities for them to play soccer, which enables them to build up their health, to acquire sociability and to learn cooperation. Concurrently, we are intent on creating public awareness because it is impossible to accomplish our vision, “Normalization through sports”, without a mutual connection between individuals who have learning disabilities/difficulties and unimpaired people.
TRACOS runs seven soccer schools and one soccer club in Tokyo and Kanagawa, and dispatches our coaches to special-needs schools and events all over Japan. We foster certified professional coaches to send to as many places as possible so that many who can't join our schools because of distance can come to classes or training sessions.
Aiming to raising public awareness, we hold soccer events in which people who have developmental disabilities/difficulties and those who do not connect, understand and communicate with each other through playing soccer.
TRACOS operates soccer schools and a soccer club for children and adults with developmental disabilities/difficulties in Tokyo and Kanagawa.
In addition to soccer classes and training programs, TRACOS also offers many fun activities and events for our students and their families.
Projects & Events
We offer on-site classes, seminars and hold friendly matches between TRACOS and unimpaired soccer teams.
