We are football/soccer club for girls and boys (5-13 years old) . Usually we have training sessions after school close to Nagoya city.
We are looking for people who are passionate about football, love playing the game and enjoy working with children.
Football is a universal language and breaks down many barriers. Playing football, or any other team sport, is one of the best ways to communicate, learn about teamwork and have fun, and we want to promote that at our club.
We would like to invite 'Workawayers' to come and participate with our players and bring your experience from around the world.
I have travelled to many countries and played football everywhere I have been. It was always the best way to make new friends. Japan is a very 'traditional' country and not a lot of children get the opportunity to travel overseas. For this reason your input will be a great way for our players to meet people from all over the world.
You are expected to be an assistant coach for football training sessions. In addition, we will expect you to help with a few daily chores at our house, and also help at the football clubhouse.
In return, we would like to invite you to stay at our house . We have 3 kids: Daughters of 5 and 2 and a baby boy of 2 months. Our kids will benefit from meeting people from all over the world. We are happy to host single people, couples and also families with kids, as our children will have some playmates!
We are big animal lovers as well, and our family also includes 2 dogs and a goat!
Our interests include: cooking, permaculture, farming, nature, outdoor activities and music.
We hope we can share our culture, special food, and hospitality with you to make this a special Japanese experience.
I look forward to hearing from you.
