Japanese Goverment decided that from the 2002 year, the public schools have 2 days holidays on every Saturday and Sunday. Consequently, the school children go to the school for only 5 days in a week.

Many school children wanted to use their free time of Saturday for the sports activities under the instruction of junior sports. But, they are compeled to study so hard that it is not so easy for them to enjoy only sports activities. It was also pointed out the luck of the instructors of junior sports concerning of JJSA.
In order to arrange the reception of school children for their holiday, there are many ploblems.
