The future of Jeju United is growing rapidly thanks to the support and education of the club.
The Jeju U-18 youth team reclaimed the top of the national competition for the first time in five years. The road to success in the orange future is by no means an accident. With Jeju’s meticulous consideration and support, we are repeating amazing growth toward our dreams.
The Jeju U-18 team won the 45th Culture, Sports and Tourism Minister Cup National High School Soccer Tournament held in Jinju Sports Park from February 13th to February 26th, defeating strong Daegu Daeryun High School. The Jeju U-18 team, which won the first national championship in 2017 at the foundation of the youth team at Geum Seok-bae, succeeded in regaining the top five years after winning the 2018 National Football Championship at the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, and stood tall as the cradle of youth development.
Winning the Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism was possible because of the full support of the club. The Jeju U-18 team lives in the clubhouse and develops its potential in infrastructure comparable to a professional team, such as training, support, and supplies. We are not sparing support for each field such as physical and medical as well as athletic performance. In particular, Jeju has expanded its youth support to education related to psychology and bio-information, which have recently been highlighted in importance in modern soccer. 안전놀이터
Jeju provides systematic psychological support to Jeju’s youth teams through ‘Sports Performance Group Eins Hana’ twice a month for the Jeju U-18 team, led by Dr. Park Ji-hoon of Psychology. We carefully care for the players by dividing them into team parts such as teamwork, leadership, and communication development, and individual parts such as goal setting, confidence, mental training, and anxiety control.
On the 2nd, at the Jeju clubhouse, ‘bio education’ was held to learn diet-related information, such as differences in the amount of nutrients consumed depending on individual genetics. Support from ‘Pulmuone Food & Culture’, which is responsible for the diet of the Jeju athletes, was supported. It was a place to educate on how to manage health through eating habits. Based on the theory, players will individually apply it to the personal management area, and the club will apply it to their individual diet.
Jeju said, “There are not many teams that meticulously manage detailed areas for the growth of youth players beyond the operation and support of participation in the competition.” Coach Lee Sang-ho, who leads the Jeju U-18 team, said, “In modern soccer, mental and bio management is also important. I would like to express my gratitude to the Jeju club for actively supporting and presenting various solutions for team and individual growth.” .
Jeju U-18 captain Park Min-jae (3rd grade) said, “I personally feel that I am becoming stronger not only through soccer but also through external education. Based on this, I will try my best to grow into a great professional player.”
