Dear Y28 Applicants:


This week, we were informed by our Japan partner (Matsue Basketball Association) that they will not be able to host our Yonsei 28 program next year in 2022. Every year, our Yonsei program rotates host cities, and Matsue was the designated host city for 2022. The current uncertainty regarding Covid 19 together with the extremely slow vaccination and testing program in Japan present too many uncertainties for next year.


Therefore, unfortunately, our Yonsei Board made the difficult decision to cancel the Yonsei 28 program and all activities related to Yonsei 28 including the June information meetings and our Yonsei 28 selection process.


For our board, this was a very difficult decision as we truly wanted to find a way to move forward with a program for the Yonsei 28 team, but the challenges posed by the pandemic were too great to overcome.


On behalf of the Yonsei Board, I would like to thank you for your interest in Yonsei 28 as we remain hopeful that we will soon emerge from this pandemic and on a global level can return to some form of normalcy.


Scott Kohno
