My View of Football Development To whom it may concern, My name is Teshima Atsushi. Please allow me to briefly explain you about my understanding of the development of football or the philosophy of how I view my mission. I would like to compare Development of Football with Farming. I believe you need four kinds of pillars. 1. You need good soil. The soil is the environment or the Facility. Fields, Medical treatment, Dressing room, Goals, Dormitory, Equipment and Tournament (League Matches). Those things are strong support for development. 2. You need good seeds. The seeds means are your Players. You must consider two important groups that are very different. One group is quantity, another a group is quality. Quantity means promotion of Football - increase participation (Fun, Players, Spectators and Football People) = Grass-roots. You have to create the fun football and stimulate the love for Football among the people. This is the foundation of Football for your country. Quality means to scout for the talented players. Important is the right players. This will be your base or Face of your Football style, the players that make your country proud. 3. You need good farmers The Farmers are the Coaches, Managers, and Administrators. Those people are taking care of the players day-to-day. The key is to nurture the talent, to not push too much but also not give too little so that they grow according to their potential in their timing. Therefore the Farmers must consider the things that he provides for the player, the right thing, the right amount and in the right timing. 4. Time As you all know as strong plant needs time. To build quality roots or foundation to support a strong plant you need time. Only mushrooms grow over night but the next day they might be gone because they don’t have any roots that go deep down. If you want quality and a good harvest you need to let time do its job and the harvest to get ripe.
These four pillars are very important. If you miss something, the result will change. But everything is in nice harmony and you will witness a very nice harvest time. It will be become a routine, a process of work. I understand that limiting factors such as the budget can be challenges. But God gives us a brain, wisdom and courage. You could adjust your original routine according to the circumstances. I would like to contribute that cultivate human through Sports, and to build a cheerful society. Because the Victory is to obtain from ability and diligence from certain rules in the characteristics of Sports. Also the process of effort from the defeat can be education too.
What I think I can help you with: To develop for the top Players and Team (Include Youth Players and Team). To design for Youth development Program and Project. To organize for Football Environment. To mentor and mature for Coaches (Include Youth Coaches). To design for better organized Grassroots Football. To design for structure of Top Club. To Manage for the Top Club. Those points are for bright future of your Football!
“What I want to do”- well this is not important! Important is “What is your vision and how can I support what you need to do? “
I look forward to hearing from you and discuss one day soon.
