The Japanese Youth Girls National team has been one of the leading teams in the world for a number of years and are previous FIVB World champions.
Coach, Norihito Uehara, an enthusiastic and experienced Volleyball coach, hopes his players improve as athletes and learn the spirit of the Olympics as they prepare for the first Youth Olympic Games. Uehara’s squad, with their self-consciousness and their pride will do their best to come back with the gold.
Japan is a well-balanced team in terms of defence and offence. There are many short players in the team but they have speed and accuracy skills, meaning they remain dangerous.
Japan has been looking forward to competing in Singapore and the time has now come.
