Our Coaches

Message From Masayoshi Yoshizawa

Yoshizawa Coach

My name is Masayoshi Yoshizawa. I am the co-founder and vice-chairman of NPO TRACOS and more importantly a soccer coach who enjoys playing with our students.

I was a soccer coach for a junior team of a J-League (Japan Professional Football League) club. There, I always made children play soccer to win by following my instructions. When I look back at myself as a coach, I did not laugh nor did the children laugh. I thought that was normal until I met this boy at a special education classroom. He had been absent from school but he came back because he’d been told that a soccer coach would teach him how to play soccer.  When we started playing soccer, he told me vividly what he wanted and what he liked, smiling. It was a big turning point for me.  At first he wanted to play soccer with me.  Then he made me want to play soccer with him and eventually with other children who have learning disabilities/difficulties.

I set up an NPO corporation “TRACOS” in 2003 to run soccer schools for children with learning disabilities/difficulties.  TRACOS children have turned me into a coach who laughs a lot.   At TRACOS, I let children do what they would like so that they can play soccer.  It brings them laughter when they just chase the ball.  Some don’t chase the ball but run laughing, and some just smile at the ball.   Children who did not laugh much before will come to laugh here. It's not about winning or losing, it's all about playing and having fun.

NPO TRACOS sends experienced and professional coaches to special-needs schools and events to offer soccer classes for children with special needs who can’t come to our schools because of distance.

Coaches carry fun inflatable soccer equipment, which helps children find sports fun and interesting. Our on-site soccer class is not only for children but also for their parents. Parents share information with each other and develop mutual feelings of fellowship before and after class.
