Wakatake Football academies in Japan

International youth development experiences

Wakatake Way

«Wakatake Group is a socially responsible, youth development oriented organization helping young football players become their best selves as they grow from young kids to adults. We believe in our unique formula for success: travel, holistic education, personal accountability and social responsibility & commitment to both your community and the world at large.
Why do we believe in this formula so strongly? We have tested it in our own lives and seen the benefits it delivers over many years… and now we want to give back and help new generations walk this same path. For more than 15 years, we have been creating a large number of international programs, experiences & services that focus on the development of the player and the person, both on and off the field. We are always looking for new ways to innovate and be creative with the goal of staying at the forefront of our industry. Via this website, we invite you to please check out extra details of our football academies project in Japan, as well as all our youth development experiences around the world. Of course, please get in touch if you feel connected to our work!»
