[Overseas] USA Special Basketball English Camp
2020: The Year for Sports in Japan
From 2020, the year of Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics Games, English education will start in 3rd grade, and by 5th-6th grade English will be one of the curriculum subjects. In a world hectically transforming by globalization and diversification, we feel there is the need for our children, who will be carrying the new generation on their shoulders, to not only improve their language ability but also their logical thinking and dynamism in order to be able to take action in environments and towards people with diverse cultural backgrounds.
In order to stimulate the growth of their strength to challenge new environments, we use sports and entertainment as an entry point to create situations where the children may think "It's fun to be able to speak English!", "The world gets bigger!".
We believe that children raised with this kind of education can become people of talent, able to live through their time and realize their future dreams.

Making best use of their knowledge and network, their support in cooperation with Global Step Academy is going to widen up next generation children's possibilities.

Our Overseas Special Camp is organized by the prestigious University of California (UCLA), which gave birth to a great number of athletes in NBA (world's most prominent basketball league), and also is the 11-times winner of the NCAA tournament of American Universities.
Participants of this camp also have the valuable opportunity to experience life inside American top class UCLA campus.
3. Additional online lessons for all participants
