THE JOURNEY FROM DESHI TO LIMITED ATHLETE
Every player dreams to be a sponsored athlete one day. We get it, and every player should be given the opportunity to be able to live their dreams. At OSAKA HOCKEY, we try make these dreams a reality for every player. As you can imagine, we cannot satisfy every request for a sponsorship but we have developed a journey that allows anyone to become a fully sponsored athlete.
Loyalty is hard to find, Trust is easy to lose, Actions speak louder than words.
The OSAKA Journey:
Deshi; the Japanese word for apprentice. The best players in the world were all once a Deshi, Emulating their heroes, on and off the field. Anyone can be an Osaka Deshi. Our OSAKA PRO PLAYERS and OSAKA LIMITED ATHLETES all have Deshi Codes that are redeemable on the OSAKA HOCKEY WEBSHOP or through accredited retailers. You can use these Deshi Codes to get some discount on Osaka Hockey products. Once you have purchased and learned to love your Osaka Hockey products, share your experiences with us and get our attention on Social Media using the #OsakaDeshi hashtag. Progress to the next tier is reserved for players that already use Osaka products. You cannot love the brand and wish to be sponsored if you have never even bought an Osaka Hockey Product before.
