The Faculty of Health and Sport Sciences at UNY had the opportunity to cooperate with JICA Japan. The cooperation designed is about sending professional trainers in the sports of volleyball, archery, and tennis to improve the quality of coaching education at the Faculty of Health and Sport Sciences UNY.

The Dean of the Faculty of Health and Sport Sciences, Prof. Dr. Wawan S. Suherman, M.Ed. stated that the physical literacy of today's society must also be improved and intensified so that the presence of volunteers from JICA can build a culture of love for sports at UNY and also in Yogyakarta.
