Wilson X Weekly A For You: (51) Ansan TOP Basketball Class Jinwoo Jeon
Assist, which has been working on the Assist For Youth project for the development of youth basketball in Korea since 2022, has been working steadily with global sports brand Wilson.
Assist, along with Wilson, selects and introduces one basketball class youth every Monday to join Up For You. With this project, we hope that hope will be planted again in youth who have not received attention because many competitions have not been held due to the Corona 19 incident.
The main character selected as the 51st in Wilson X Weekly A For You is Jeon Jin-woo of Ansan TOP Basketball Class.
Jeon Jin-woo, who is currently in the 6th grade of Sigok Elementary School, said he started learning basketball in the Ansan TOP basketball class from the 2nd grade of elementary school. The time on the basketball court, which has entered its fourth year, has been of great help to Jeon Jin-woo.
Although he is not tall, Jinwoo Jeon스포츠토토, who participated in every class with his passion for basketball, drew attention by participating in the assist youth basketball camp held in December of last year.
At the time, Jeon Jin-woo said, “It’s fun because it’s an opportunity to learn new things,” and said, “It’s difficult, but it feels good to think about using the skills I learned at the camp in practice.”
Jeon Jin-woo, who is also the Ansan TOP 6th grade national team, says he has not participated in the 6th grade competition yet. However, Jeon Jin-woo, who is scheduled to participate in the competition soon, said, “I think it will be more difficult for the 6th grade because the upper grades gather in the elementary school. But I think it will be just as fun. I want to help,” he said, expressing his anticipation for participating in the 6th grade competition.
Jeon Jin-woo, who has been active in the Ansan TOP age group since 4th grade, is said to be showing steady growth although he is smaller than his peers. In particular, he is helping his team by consistently recording steals in defensive situations.
Jeon Jin-woo, who said that playing basketball with friends after a game is the most enjoyable, said, “Now, when I compete again, I want to play basketball more happily than before. I want to make successful plays often,” he said, adding that he would like to show a more active appearance in defensive situations in the future.
Jeon Jin-woo, who likes Stephen Curry and Byun Jun-hyung, said, “I was fascinated by the shooting and dribbling skills of the two players. I like them so much that I always think, ‘I want to become like that.’ I want to become a good player,” he said. Assist For Youth is a project that assists to spread youth basketball by joining forces with youth basketball classes across the country from 2022.
