"2017 SOLATO Ehime FC Football School" was held at the Viva Sportia SAIJO on April 15, 2017 (Saturday).
A total of 48 people took part this time, including elementary school pupils from year 1 to year 4 and their parents or guardians.
This soccer workshop has taken place every year since 2007 and is staffed by the Aichi FC, which belongs to the J2 League and which this company is the official uniform sponsor of.
On the day, training was provided by the players Daiki Nishioka, Ju Feng, and the school coaches. A fun day was had as the participating youngsters watched the pro soccer players' techniques on the pitch of the Ehime FC practice ground and joined in with them in soccer practices. The parents and guardians, not to be outdone by their children, ran around and worked up a sweat, and the workshop ended with everyone on a big high.
Taiyo Oil will continue to hold similar sports schools in order to help foster children’s interest in sports and development of a sound mind in a healthy body.
