Aha!  Comprehensive Community Sports Club Q & A

Aha!  Comprehensive Community Sports Club Q & AQ. Why is it called comprehensive community sports club?

A. Comprehensive community sports clubs offer a variety of sports programs. People can participate in any program regardless of their age or skill level. The word “comprehensive” is used in their title to describe their activities which embrace diversity.

Q. Interested in starting a club? Where should you start?

A. First, you must define the principle — how you want to change the community by building the club and share the ideas with others who could help build the club. Second, you should obtain the support of various community organizations as stakeholders to expand the club’s activities, as community collaboration is the key to successful club operation. A club can be founded by multiple ways — for example, by converting an existing amateur or youth sports club into a comprehensive club or by appointing a regional sports promoter to take the initiative to start a club. Yokohama Sports Association can help you get your club up and running. You are welcome to contact the association for more information.

Q. Who are the instructors?

A. Club members bring various community resources, talents, and programs, to provide an excellent variety of training and coaching. For example, instructors can be specialists currently active in regional services such as sports promotion and the facilitation of Yokohama’s sawayaka sports projects. In some cases, local officials or professional teams invite the top athletes to be club instructors.

Q. How do you find money for your club’s operations?

A. A comprehensive community sports club is independently operated by the community residents. The membership fees basically cover the operating expenses. Other means of fund raising—e.g. donations, toto grants, and so on, are also necessary to maintain the club.

“Sports are a universal culture of all mankind”
Sports 2.0 The new role of sports

Sports are a universal culture of all mankindThe Basic Act on Sports policy was initiated this past August under the motto, “sports are a universal culture of all mankind.”
Community leaders are highly optimistic about how much comprehensive community sports clubs can drive the promotion of community-based sports activities in Japan and further advance, The Basic Act on Sports and The Strategy for a Sports Nation (August, 2010, MEXT).
Why comprehensive community sports clubs now?
Many clubs set their sports objectives beyond just playing sports.
Developing children so they gain strength through sports which promotes living full and vigorous lives.
Building a vibrant society where anyone in the community can enjoy sports.
The passion for supporting the community by appreciating the universal power of sports.
As today’s society faces many issues, clubs contribute to society in many more ways than sports do on its own.
With The Basic Act on Sports policy in effect, it is clear that promoting sports is one of the national strategies. Sports 2.0 means the shift of sports to assume a new role.
