Kumon partners with Basketball Victoria

Kumon Australia and New Zealand is proud to announce a new partnership with Basketball Victoria to help young people realise their potential.

Throughout this partnership, Kumon will have naming rights to the Kumon Country Metro Challenge and Kumon Classic tournaments.

The Kumon Country Metro Challenge, held in January 2022, is a brand-new all-Victorian tournament to give young athletes a chance to hone their skills and develop within the Victorian High Performance pathway as part of elite preparation for Australian Junior Championships.

The Kumon Classic is held on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June each year, and the 2022-event will be the first after a two-year hiatus due to lockdowns and border closures. The elite tournament features 128 of Australia’s best junior basketball teams across Under-12, Under-14, Under-16, and Under-18 boys and girls age groups, and is a highlight on the Australian basketball calendar.

Scott Quilty, Division Leader of Kumon Victoria, says this partnership will help Kumon connect with local families while supporting the work of Basketball Victoria.

“We are proud to support an organisation like Basketball Victoria that shares our passion for helping young people to reach their potential”, he says.

“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”.

Nick Honey, CEO of Basketball Victoria, says this partnership demonstrates both organisations’ commitment to children’s development.

“Kumon and Basketball Victoria know just how important it is to give high-level opportunities for young people to develop”, Honey says.

“Our organisations both encourage children and teenagers to find ways to succeed and thrive – whether it’s on the basketball court, in the classroom, or on the way to joining the professional workplace”.
