Report on the “JCRWS International Symposium 2019”

JCRWS International Symposium 2019

The Japanese Center for Research on Women in Sport (JCRWS), which is now in its 6th year of operation, has made a new start by expanding the range of their research fields and the age of subjects.
On September 16th, the JCRWS’s presentation for the previous year's research was held together with the keynote speeches from two overseas experts on women’s sports and physical activities. These keynote speeches covered topics about women of all ages in new research fields. All of this together created the " JCRWS International Symposium 2019".

Opening Address

At the opening of the conference, Mari Kitaide, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, who has served as the Deputy Director since the establishment of the Japanese Center for Research on Women in Sport, was on stage. The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology's Strategic Research Foundation Support Project (Research on Condition Management for Female Athletes), which has been ongoing for five years since 2014, started by promoting new research and welcoming the women’s sports and physical activity keynote speakers. They also expressed their appreciation for the symposium.

Keynote Speech I

Dr. Elizabeth C.J. Pike
(Professor, University of Hearthordshare)

 

A keynote Speech entitled “The Nexus of Gender, Aging and Exercise” was given by Professor Elizabeth Pike of Hertfordshire University in the UK. She has been conducting joint research with Juntendo University’s Japanese Center for Research on Women in Sport since January 2019. Professor Pike is focused on improving the opportunities for seniors and women to participate in sports. She elaborated on “Health Japan 21 (Secondary)” and continued on to talk about the current state of senior’s physical activity in Japan. She also said that for women, physical activity is beneficial for alleviating postmenopausal side effects (such as menopause) and for finding one’s purpose in life.

Keynote Speech Ⅱ

Dr. Yuhei Inoue of Manchester Metropolitan University gave a keynote Speech entitled “The Role of Fitness Club Identification in Promoting Older Women ’s Well-Being”. During the commentary about the relationship between healthy aging and physical activity, we presented the results of a survey conducted on members of a women's fitness club chain in Japan. According to the report, not only can physical health be obtained through physical activities at the facility, but also the act of employees approaching individual members seemingly promotes mental health.

Next, research reports were made by four research teams. Team 1’s report about Menstrual Coordination and Condition Management Program Development was presented by Deputy Director Natsue Koikawa. Team 2’s Study on Optimal Load Conditions for Training Considering Menstrual Cycle was given by Dr. Shuichi Machida. He talked about past research topics, new results, and future research plans.

In the subsequent question and answer session, questions extending beyond the boundaries of the research reports into different fields were posed. A number of discussions that otherwise would not have been realized without this opportunity sprouted. In response to this, Deputy Director Natsue Koikawa, director of Juntendo University Women's Track and Field, said, “It is the power of JCRWS’s collaborative environment that allows for conversations in different fields such as sports and medicine.” She spoke powerfully about the significance of the Japanese Center for Research on Women in Sport.
