The block league 2022, which will be held from August to December, will feature teams recommended by the basketball associations of each prefecture. The prefectures to which the teams participating in the top league belong are, in principle, recommended by the top teams in the Inter-High qualifying round, except for the teams participating in the top league. One male and female team from each prefecture will participate in the Kanto block, two male and female teams from each prefecture will participate in the Tokai block, one male and female team from each prefecture will participate in the Chinese block, and two male and female teams from each prefecture will participate in the Shikoku block.

The U18 generation league match was born, and Yuta Watanabe, the Japanese national team who plays in the NBA, said, “When I was a high school student, I didn’t have a league match, so I’m very envious.” “I would like to thank the high school students today for taking this competitive environment for granted, and to make use of it for the growth of the winter cup, which is the culmination of high school. I think that experiencing the league games that can be done from high school can be utilized when becoming a professional in the future, and it will surely lead to the future of Japan. “

Maki Takada, the women’s representative from Japan, also wrote a comment, “I think it is very good that the number of games will increase due to the league match.” “Unlike a one-shot tournament, I imagine that you will be required to have conditioning adjustments, strategies and tactics that will allow you to fight in the best condition during the league period. I myself would have had such a competitive environment when I was a high school student. I think it was fun, and especially for players who aim to continue playing basketball at the top level even after graduating from high school, it is very meaningful to be able to experience a competitive environment close to that of a team in the top category when they are in high school. “
