Participated in a Sports Promotion Event Organized by Hayama-Machi in Kanagawa Prefecture

On September 10, 2022, a staff member participated as an instructor in a sports promotion event, “Learn From Top Athletes,” organized by Hayama-machi. The town drives community development by organizing sports events and programs for the townspeople’s participation in various sports activities. The event this time was a beach volleyball class using a local beach as the site. We agreed with the town’s objectives and participated in it for the first time.

Roughly 40 townspeople, ranging from primary school students to adults, participated in the class. Our staff member first coached basic volleyball techniques such as passing, tossing, and spiking. Then, the participants were divided into teams and played actual games. They asked many questions about skills that are unlike indoor volleyball’s and are unique to beach volleyball, for example, how to handle the ball in the wind and how to jump on sand.

We rank Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as one of our essential management tasks. As a good corporate citizen, we continue our active involvement in and contributions to local communities.
