Yokohama-shi, Kanagawa Prefecture
Yamamoto tells about his team.
A lecture by Yamamoto Noriki, Director of Japan Deaf Futsal Women Team was held at a special elderly nursing home Yokohama-shi near Tokyo on May 15.
A theme was how to keep a sense of distance and how to take communication. First Yamamoto spoke about the problem that his team faces, etc., and then a discussion was held between the nursing home staff and Yamamoto.
It is said that national support to disability sport is related to strength of the team. Yamamoto says his team players gather from across the country once for two months at present for practice, of which the total cost is all paid by the players.
The Deaf Futsal World Cup will take place in Thailand in November, this year, in which both Japanese men and women teams participate.
