Kumon partners with Basketball ACT

Kumon Australia and New Zealand is proud to announce a new partnership with Basketball ACT.

Throughout this partnership, Kumon will sponsor the Kumon Sue Geh and Jamie Pearlman Cups, which are primary school competitions held annually at Belconnen Basketball Stadium and Tuggeranong Southern Cross Stadium in Canberra. Kumon will also sponsor the Kumon Level Up program for 2023. This is a junior development program for players aged 8-15 years, which aims to help them build on skills learnt at school holiday camps and other development programs.

By partnering with Basketball ACT, Kumon is confident that it will help even more young people to excel.

“We are proud to support an organisation like Basketball ACT that shares our passion for helping young people to reach their potential”, says Steven Sou, Division Leader of Kumon ACT.

“Kumon provides children with strong skills in mathematics and English, and the confidence to excel academically. We see this partnership as a way for both of our organisations to help children grow into confident, well-rounded adults”.

Basketball ACT’s Chief Executive Officer, David Simpson, says that it welcomes Kumon’s support in 2023.

“Our Sue Geh and Jamie Pearlman Cup competitions, as well as our Level Up program, ensures our junior players get opportunities to develop their game and achieve their very best on-court”, Simpson says. “Kumon offer the same opportunities for young people to reach their full potential academically”.

“Basketball ACT is excited to partner with Kumon, and work together to give young people the best chance to reach their goals, in supported and structured ways – on the basketball court and in the classroom.”
