[Intro with upbeat music] “Hey everyone, welcome back to Thumbs Up Smile! I’m Keisuke, and today I have a unique story to share with you – my journey as a coach in the United States. So, let’s dive in!”

[Transition to main content] “From August 2019 to August 2021, I had the opportunity to train as a volleyball coach in the USA. This journey was all about exploring advanced coaching techniques and strengthening methods for top-level players and teams​​.”

“I primarily worked with Temple University’s Women’s Volleyball Team in Pennsylvania and the APAC Volleyball Club in El Paso, Texas. These experiences offered me a front-row seat to the American volleyball scene, from collegiate to junior levels​​.”

“I also attended the 2019 AVCA Coaches Convention in Pittsburgh and observed significant events like the Las Vegas Classic 2021 and the USA Volleyball Girls Junior National Championship. These events gave me deeper insights into American volleyball training and competitive spirit​​.”

“One unique aspect of American sports culture is the integration of academics and athletics. I was amazed to see how student-athletes balance rigorous academic schedules with intense training regimes. It’s a system that nurtures both their athletic and academic growth, promoting a culture of excellence on and off the court​​.”

“But it’s not all work and no play! Americans know how to balance work with leisure. From team activities, sporting events, to even joining in Thanksgiving celebrations, I experienced the vibrant social side of American sports culture​​.”

[Conclusion] “My time in the US was transformative. It wasn’t just about learning advanced volleyball techniques but understanding a culture that fosters excellence in sports and life. This experience has enriched my coaching philosophy, and I can’t wait to apply these learnings back home in Japan.”

[Outro with upbeat music] “Thanks for watching! If you found this video insightful, give it a thumbs up and don’t forget to subscribe for more stories. See you in the next video!”
