サッカー×英語=Brissy FC 【2018年春、開校予定】

My own soccer academy will be opened in Spring, 2018 in Osaka, Japan

人物紹介(My Biography) 

 

  当時、高校3年の進路相談で、担任教師から将来設計を聞かれ、Jリーグには全く手が届かずも諦めきれず、海外でプロサッカー選手を志す。そして、当時の英語力で進学できる大学を選び、サッカー部に所属しながら、教員免許取得と卒業後の渡豪に向けての資金作りの為、アルバイトに明け暮れる日々を過ごす。

 

Back in my school days, I was torn among few options for my future. I wanted to make the cut in J-league(Japanese professional soccer league), but I wasn't simply good enough to be scouted by any of clubs in the league. So I made up my mind going to an Uni and learn English with an ambition to go overseas after graduation. In the meantime, I had desperately saved up comfortable cash reserves for it by doing some part-time jobs.

 

 2008年、大学卒業と同時に英語教員免許(中・高)を取得、資金も200万以上貯め、オーストラリアへプロサッカー選手を目指し渡豪。2年半、日本へは一度も戻らず、豪2部のセミプロのカテゴリーまで上がり、その後ニュージーランドへ渡る。当時1部リーグに所属していたYoung Heart Manawatu Unitedにて契約。リーグ終了後、同国オークランドへ移りWinter leagueのBay Olympicと契約、リーグ優勝。同時に現地の子ども達に自らのサッカースクールBrissy Football Academy in Aucklandを開校し、30-40人集まる規模まで成長させる。同時に現地小学校のEdendale primary schoolから依頼を受け、放課後のアクティビティの一環としてサッカークラスを開催し、1度に50名以上の子ども達が集まるほどの成功を収める。

 

In 2008, I took off to Australia for the first time with amounting to about 20.000 USD that I managed to save up while in Uni. After much trial and error, I had been hanging on there for two years and half and got to play at a semi-professional level in Brisbane, Australia in the end. And in the end of 2010, I determined a new journey in New Zealand and got to make a contract with Young Heart Manuwatu in the national league in the country after a few weeks trial. As soon as the first season ended, I transferred to Bay Olympic in the winter league in Auckland football federation. In the meantime, I started off my first ever soccer academy called Brissy football academy in Auckland for mainly Japanese kids who born in NZ. Luckily, it ran with a huge success that ended up doing with 30 to 40 kids every weekend. Moreover, I got to kick off a soccer lesson as a part of after-school activities at a local school called Edendale primary school and made it a successful event during the period with more than 50 kids at every session.

 

 そしてインドリーグ挑戦の為、忘れもしない2011年のクリスマスにインドへトライアウトに向かう。そこでAr-hima FC(現Rangdajied United)と契約をし、半年間プレー。その後再びオーストラリアへ戻り、プレーしながら次の挑戦先を探していた所、フィジーでのチャンスを得て、トライアウトの末、フィジー1部リーグのカップ戦に出場。

 そして2015年から拠点をカナダに移し、現地バーナビーリーグ1部で選手を続けながらコーチ業に重きを置いて活動。

 自身のサッカースクールBrissy Football Academy in Vancouverを現地で立ち上げると同時に、ローカルクラブやスペインバルセロナの公式アカデミーバンクーバー校にて、アジア人唯一のコーチに就任、指導。

 

On Christmas in 2011, I was on board an aircraft to India for a trial. And I got to make a pro-contract for the season. Then, I went back to Australia to keep myself fit for the next journey in Fiji. After the few days trial, I got an opportunity to take part in one of the biggest Cup tournament in Fiji for a month.

In 2015, I moved to Vancouver, Canada and put more importance on coaching in soccer rather than as a player. At the same time, I established myself in my coaching career by setting up my own soccer academy called 'Brissy Football Academy in Vancouver'. In the meantime, I also started working for the first official Barcelona academy in Canada called FCBEscola Vancouver by taking advantage of the career in my previous jobs. As a result, I was able to meet my goals that wanted to get results in coaching in an English speaking environment as that is what I would like to do in Japan. 

 

 2017年1月から欧州アイルランドへ渡り、ヨーロッパでの選手・コーチ経験とUEFAコーチングライセンス取得を目指しています。

 現在は、アイルランド3部、Dublin Bus FCにてサッカー選手を続ける傍ら、Terenure Rangers FCというダブリンのサッカーチームにてU9チームを指導。同時に、自身のBrissy Football Academy in Dublinを立ち上げ、現地の子ども達にサッカーを教える活動もしています。

 

Since 2017, I have relocated to Dublin, Ireland and acquiring coaching licences in UEFA. At the moment, I've been playing for Dublin Bus FC and coaching for an U9 side of Terenure Rangers FC, and started off my own academy 'Brissy Football Academy in Dublin'. 

 

 選手仲介人としても本格的に活動を開始しています。詳しくはHP内のBlog/Servicesのページをご参照ください。

I also am a soccer agent, who mainly send Japanese amateur players into Ireland, Australia, Newzealand and Canada.

 

 その後2018年に日本に本帰国し、本格的に自身のサッカースクール「Brissy FC」を開校予定。サッカーの指導はもちろん、英語教育も組み合わせたプログラムを軸に、小学生年代を中心にグローバルな選手・人材育成を目指し活動していきます。生徒も今の段階から募集していますので、お気軽にお問い合わせください。

 

I will be settling in Japan from the spring, 2018 and kicking into gear for my own soccer academy 'Brissy FC' in Kansai region in Japan where teaches soccer in English to foster global athletes with various possibilities for the future. We of course give our all to cultivate kid's talent and help them become a pro, but there is a fact that not many players're able to get to that level. By teaching soccer in English, We'd like to trigger their interests in English, and we believe that could broaden their values and futures too.
