The Japanese Youth Girls National Team has long been one
of the leading teams in the world and is a recent World Champion.
Last year, the Japanese Youth Girls National Team won
gold at the 7th Asian Youth Girls Championship held in Manila in 2008 and most
of those players will play an active role in the club's progress at the 2009
FIVB Girls Youth World Championship.
The key players of Japan's Youth Girls team of 2009 - as
well as its head coach, Yoshiki Ogawa - are from Japan's champion high school
team. As their study must take preference to Volleyball, the Youth Girls team
can only gather for practice during certain weekends and holidays in the summer
Japan is a well-balanced team in terms of offense and
defense. While not the tallest team at the tournament, our players will rely on
their speed and accuracy to get the job done.
Japan has been looking forward to competing in official
competitions and the time has now come. We will do our best.
