Korea’s national softball team starts off-campus training in Japan from the 20th

The Korea Baseball Softball Association (Chairman Lee Jong-hoon) will conduct training for the national softball team in Japan from the 20th to the 9th of next month.

The association held a softball performance improvement committee on the 27th of last month and selected 17 national softball players to participate in the field training in Japan.

This training session in 메이저사이트 Japan was prepared to enhance the Korean national softball team’s real sense of practice, which is aiming for the first ever medal at the 19th Hangzhou Asian Games, and to prepare for the Asian Softball Cup to be held in Incheon in April. 

The association decided on Japan, which is second in the softball world rankings and won the gold medal in the softball event at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, as a training ground and requested the Japan Softball Association (JSA) to organize a systematic training program.

During the 18-day off-campus training, the Korean national team will practice joint training with the softball team of Yamanashi Gakuin University in Japan and practice matches with softball teams from 9 universities including Waseda University, Fuji University, and Josai University.

And to conduct professional defense training, we plan to invite coach Rei Nishiyama, a former Japanese national softball team. Coach Rei Nishiyama served as a shortstop for Japan’s national softball team for 12 years and won gold medals with the Japanese team at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, 2006 Doha, 2010 Guangzhou and 2014 Incheon Asian Games.  

Noh Jong-woo, head coach of the national softball team, said, “The goal of our national softball team is to win a bronze medal at the 19th Hangzhou Asian Games. Through this off-season training, we will improve the players’ performance and become the first Korean softball team to win the Asian Games
