A line from my favorite professional cyclist,
And practice really don't lie to us !!!
FC Reale got the 1st place in the South Izu district U-11 tournament !
And U-9 team got the 3rd place!
I am happy with this result,
But what I am really, really happy is
the growth of the children's skills and maturity!
" Team mates "
is a word that can easily be said
but I think it is a feeling that can only be felt
when all of us truly put into the effort towards the same goal.
is not only about sharing pleasant feelings
but we have to share and accept, many diverse feelings like
regret, sadness, suffering, feelings that is hard to accept,
when we hold hands to aim for the same goal
then, we can truly create, the bond !
that's how I feel about team mates !!!
Penalty Shootout in the U-9 game
Hands together at the bench
During the game, the Captain pray to God for the U-9 team mates!
Not just an one player
Those who are athletic, and those who aren't
Those who could play well from the beginning, and those who couldn't
Every one of them made an effort
And everyone persisted !!
If a player could think deeply and creatively to improve himself,
Soccer is a sports that allows anyone to be successful !!!!
That is why , I chose soccer
To convey important message to the children,
And to many people through as an activity
Boys and Girls
Regardless of strength
hands connected as a team
And one of the achievements beyond effort
" The Victory Trophy"
Only one and half years ago,
The same team had lost 0 against 14
No matter how much they tried, they couldn't score...
That same team had gone so far !!!
And the most important growth was having respect in making salutation.
In sports, our opinion would gain persuasiveness only if the team is strong.
Even if the team is making such a respectful salutations,
If we are not a strong team, people can not see how great it is !!!
Especially the children !
But my wish for the children, is to think
Even if the player don't have strength and skills,
Making an effort is a cool thing
And making respectful salutations are very cool.
I wish they could have such values in life.
This activity is truly made possible because
Coaches of FC Reale truly understand my purpose
And truly confront with each children
Without their work, nothing is possible !!!!
Each coach has their own unique roll
FC Reale is progressing by each coach's character, skills, and rolls
By the way, my roll during the game is taking pictures :)
A little bit nerdy but ...
It is because I want to show the parents, who cannot come to see the game,
About their child's effort !!!
And wishing they could cooperate in making effort together !!!
To convey, to be the messenger, is my roll
From the coaches's effort
6th grade ( U-12) keeping their bags lined up neat
The first day of East Izu league tournament
So grateful for such a wonderful place to play the game !
When seeing a child really trying his best effort ,
It really drags out much courage inside !!!
Many of the current players of U-12 team is short in height
But they don't get intimidated
If opponents are bigger, then they will run twice as more !!!
Never stand down !
Even if he has asthma,
He never puts limitation on himself !!!
He always runs until he vomits !!!!!
Even if the opponent is bigger, or older,
Never say whining ! Never loose in the play !
Being put down
Again and again
No matter how many times they fall
They clench teeth and stand up again
Every time he runs into the close play
He cannot run away
He have to move forward
To be strong in every challenge
Even if she is a girl, it doesn't matter in the field
If she is weak, they will put her down
But when every one of them didn't compromise
When they stand up for the one goal
They will be rewarded
With the result
One may not persist by himself,
But they can hold on together.
They stand firm because coaches are there
And they feel safe because their family is there
It's been 8 years since I took a photo just with my direct family.
Coaches insisted to take it for our good memory
In law, this is the only family I have
But now , all of us have,
Just under one soccer ball,
Such a big family in the name of " Reale "
And tremendous amount of fellows who are playing soccer
Even has a family across borders !
From FC Reale.
More hands are connected , more hearts are connected
Further in distance, bigger in size.
And when this connection becomes firm,
Someday in the far future,
If I could see the result of this connection,
I could not describe how wonderful that is.
With such things in my mind,
I am flying to Dubai and Nepal in the 21st.
May one ball,
Be the opportunity to connect the world
May FC Reale,
Be the opportunity to connect the world
May LOLO SITOA
Be the opportunity to connect the children with you !!!!!
