Deaf volleyball team practice with professional team in Aichi Prefecture

October 27, 2013

Eighteen Pioneer Red Wings teammates based in  Tendo-shi, Yamagata Prefecture, belonging to the volleyball woman V Premier League, visited the Okazaki School for the Deaf in Okazaki-shi, Aichi Prefecture, and practiced with 27 Deaf junior and high school students on October 26.

It was planned in order for the students to experience how to take the importance of not giving up, and communication with a hearing member of society through practice together with top-level players.

The Deaf teammates tackled the practice and were instructed how to pass a ball, receive, spike, etc. One of the Deaf teammates was impressed saying, "I felt uncanny about the pro player's motivation."
