”For All Basketball Lovers”
Flow Basketball Clinic was organized based on our philosophy to “Create a Flow”.
Sotaro Nagasawa being the main MC for WOWOW NBA,
strongly felt the need to share to the younger generation the knowledge, excitement and
passion he experienced from covering NBA action live.
With the help of the clinic staff which followed Nagasawa’s concept,
Flow Basketball Clinic was born.
Our coaches are structured with deeply experienced players and ex coaches.
They have experienced the world, played or coached in top level games. With that background,
we provide the best program from beginners to professional players.
