Aiming to further the enhancement of the performance of athletes in Tokyo and in collaboration with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, we at Tokyo Sport Benefits Corporation are committed to undertaking our technical support project with two main targets: the development and the strengthening of athletes to compete well in international events such as the Olympics and to raise the quality of instructors and coaches.
The main activities of the technical support project include: offering appropriate support to athletes based on event characteristics through coordination with sport-centered universities in; establishment and management of a sports leader bank; temporary staffing; the hosting of lectures on sport medicine and sport science; and the organization of practical workshops to offer valuable medical and scientific information to local instructors on a broader basis.
With the cooperation of three universities in Tokyo, we provide support to top level high school athletes that have been recommended to us by competitive organizations. This support includes conditioning support, performance support, training support, nutritional support, etc. by competitive event according to the event's characteristics and specialization. We provide information and advice linked to improving competitiveness. This style of business, which supports athletes in cooperation with universities, without maintaining its own facilities, is the first of its kind in Japan.
We sponsor eight instructional courses per year for athletes and trainers for the purpose of strengthening and development.
The instructors are experts on the front lines developing Japan's top athletes. These practical instructional courses in sports medicine and science include both lectures and practical application of skills.
We hold workshops for local instructors to become more familiar with sport medicine and sport science.
We provide highly specialized support by dispatching sports doctors, trainers, sports nutritionists, and experts in sports psychology to matches, training grounds, schools, etc. where national athletes, candidates to be national athletes, and junior athletes (middle school and high school) are participating.
