GAP started “Soccer x English” school in July 2014 as one of the language support programs to help children learn English through fun soccer training. 20 schools have already been opened in Tokyo, Chiba, Saitama, and Kanagawa. Moreover, GAP developed and produced an English learning drill book and a mobile phone application, both now on sale, and is going to carry on a variety of ‘Sports x Language Learning’ projects.

【Message from Global Athlete Project】

“When I was a child, ten minutes was the maximum time I could concentrate while studying at my desk. In comparison, I could go on for many hours of playing sports. I believe that the combination of sports, which children enjoy doing, and English learning is the best way to make children interested in learning and improving their skills. I am sure there are a lot of children out there just like me. ‘Sports x Language’ projects are coming from my experience, and we are trying to offer many kinds of projects along the line.” – Ryusuke Tanaka Founder of GAP


We have 21 soccer schools and 16 Cheer Dance schools in Tokyo, Chiba, Saitama and Kanagawa.

We have social gatherings and like to get together to play soccer or other fun activities with our staff! Do you want to help us foster and grow more global-minded Japanese people while meeting and making new friends? This place is for you!

Please contact us and we are looking forward to meeting you!
