Missions

Passion

We try to pass on our passion for football to young players by helping them to improve their football skills, so they fall in love with the ball and can enjoy the game to the fullest.

Improvement

Our curriculum is based on our experience of french training methods and covers all technical, physical and tactical aspects of the game to help players improve their skills.

Development

We support kids education through sports. A sports activity can help develop intellectual abilities and soft skills, and can even help improve school results.

Community

We connect Tokyo’s international community by getting together players of all nationalities, and create an unique chemistry on and off the pitch.

Goals

  • Create a safe, fun, and challenging environment where players, regardless their nationality, can improve their skills and enjoy the game
  • Make players development a priority by raising their level of confidence and self-esteem while preserving their own character
  • Continue players education by teaching them sports values such as passion, respect, solidarity, humility, fair play etc.
  • Advance players to achieve sports excellence by offering great quality of training based on our experience of french training methods
  • Give the opportunity to foreign players to play football in Tokyo, and to young japanese players to join an international football club
  • Give a chance to talented foreign, binational or even Japanese players with a more european style to perform in competitions in Tokyo
  • Bring together the best and most talented players from international schools and offering them exposure in competitions in Japan
  • Build a competitive international football club in Tokyo that achieves results while mixing up the french, western, and japanese cultures
