Powered up from last year, this year is a 5-month sports producer experience full of practical training
Shibuya Mirai Design, a general incorporated association (Representative Director: Hideki Koizumi, hereinafter referred to as Shibuya Mirai Design) collaborates with GAKU, a new creation school for teens operated by Logs Co., Ltd. (President: Yuta Takeda). Then, Shibuya Sports Academy Phase 3 will start on October 7, 2022 (Friday).
In 2020, the next-generation sports scene promoted by Future Design Shibuya is based on the idea that “street sports, where many young people in their teens and 20s are active, should also shine on the side that supports them.” It was launched by the creative project “Next Generations”.
This unique initiative has been highly evaluated not only by the street sports scene, but also by the companies and organizations that support the sport, and it has been decided that the course will be held on September 9th this year as well. This year, the course period has been extended from 3 months last year to 5 months, and the class time per lecture has also been expanded to 120 minutes. In terms of the content of the lectures, we will provide opportunities for real learning and creative experiences that cannot be obtained from classroom lectures, by collaborating more closely and more frequently with future projects such as Shibuya Future Design and the Next Generations Project.
As with last year, we will set the theme for each lecture, and guest experts who are active at the forefront of each field such as “planning”, “public relations”, “management”, “brand”, “team”, “management”, and “SDGs” that support sports. Invited as a lecturer, this year we will have more time for workshops and discussions with guest lecturers. Provide students with valuable opportunities. We aim to develop human resources who can create and support the future sports scene by coming up with their own plans based on various inputs and implementing them as “sports producers.”
In recruiting students, priority will be given to athletes, and in course management, members who attended last year’s course will participate as mentors, fostering horizontal and vertical connections. It provides value that cannot be learned in school classes. Detailed information such as curriculum and schedule, information on guest lecturers and how to apply will be announced on the Next Generations official website. We look forward to your continued attention this year.

In the second period, which was held for about three months from September 2021, the input necessary for the realization of the sports event was implemented in the first half period. Divided into three workgroups, they exchanged ideas to work on at the U-15 street sports festival “Next Generations Games 2021” and challenged to propose a plan in front of the professionals who support each Next Generations project. Based on various feedback, we further evolved the plan, and realized the plan that we created from scratch at the actual event venue.
