The High School/University Coaching Qualifications Council met for the third time today in order to discuss changes to the qualifications system currently in place. The NPB side of the council submitted their proposal for a training course that would fulfill the necessary requirements to become a high school or university coach.
Said Masayuki Naito (Japan Student Baseball Association, head of secretariat) to reporters, "The University side has no problems [with the proposal]. The High School side will begin discussions on this matter at each of the levels in their system so it might take some time."
