This exchange event was held in Kagoshima City, and six people including South African players and coaches visited Nakagori Elementary School.

The gymnasium, which was the venue, attracted more than 600 people, including children, parents and locals, and welcomed them by breaking the ball and performing Japanese dance. After this, the children enjoyed touching each other by hanging or lifting on the athlete's arms.

The 6th grade boy said, “I was surprised because the players were muscular and when I made a high touch, my hands were very big. I was talking. "
