This is our third year hosting basketball players from the Japanese Basketball Academy. In our first year, we hosted two players; in the second year, six players; and this year, SASC hosted a whopping twelve players! The JBA players were boys and girls ranging in age from twelve to eighteen. These kids are from all over Japan and SASC kids and families were treated to their outstanding play and sportsmanship. Such exchanges have promoted the best of SASC, the strengthening of community beyond our borders. Once again our families stepped up to provide overnight stays for our JBA visitors. After a fun-filled afternoon of basketball, dodge ball and pizza,several families hosted the JBA players, giving them a warm welcome and a peek into family life in America. Thank you.
