Held the second hockey class at Ibuki 1 Ground, Maibara City. The activity mainly consisted of the previous review. For players who had forgotten the details in the previous class, could ask questions and see actual play. They were provided with practice, and coaching opportunity.

Finally, the coaches repeatedly checked the basic skills taught (traps and shafts, push left hand, hit face and right knee check, etc.) during normal training.

After finishing this project, Japan Hockey Association conducted hockey training at the Ibuki 1st Ground, Maibara City. When the Olympic head coach visited the place for coaching, the concentration and interest of the athletes was overflowing.

The objective these sessions says, athletes and staff who will participate in the Olympic Games will continue to actively participate in the junior field, and that future children will have more opportunities to enjoy the “fun” of coming to the hockey field.
