To promote youth sports in the Asian region, the Japan Sports Association accepted 26 youth sports leaders involved in sports activities from neighbouring Asian countries/regions and conducted inspection and training for youth sports activities, etc. in our country.

During the current year and the 25th such initiative, a lecture was conducted centring on ‘Establishment of a Sports Agency and new sports administration’ by the Sports Agency inaugurated last October as well as an overview of the businesses in which the association is engaged. Moreover, the local training program conducted in Yamanashi prefecture involved visiting a total of four local general sports clubs/boy scouts in Fuji-Yoshida and Fuefuki cities to inspect the circumstances of sports activities in Japan and deepen the relationship with local children and seniors through sports.
