Sports Masters Japan was launched in 2001 as Japan’s first and only comprehensive sports meet for competitive senior athletes (aged 35 and over).
The aims are to promote sporting activity, build a more richly fulfilling society for all, and help maintain and nurture health in both body and mind through direct engagement with sport and mutual competition rooted in the spirit of Fair Play.
Sports Masters Japan Strategic Plan for 2018-22
The Sports Masters Japan Strategy 2018-22 was adopted in July, 2018, to tackle the three global challenges laid out in the Declaration on Sport in Japan, namely a fair society with rich social welfare provision, coexistence with the environment, and peace and friendship, and implement the JSPO’s fundamental concepts and concrete action plans as described in the Outline of the Japan Sport Association’s Vision 2018. The strategy aims to disseminate, improve and develop the meet still further, first by examining the problems it faces and then seeking solutions in close collaboration with everyone involved, including the host municipalities and governing spor ts associations.
