About the Program:

Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz is continuing to deliver its One Team program in partnership with the Gizarterako Association, an open organization with a strong street presence and a dynamic and participatory approach. The sport of basketball is used to encourage respect, tolerance and teamwork. The program is dedicated to children from immigrant backgrounds and those with the potential to become excluded from society. The program has been developed with a focus on the children’s integration into society, as well as the inclusion of their families. The start date is October 3 with 16 children taking part between the ages of five and 12. Outside of the One Team sessions, Baskonia has set up other special activations, basketball camps, practices with club staff and sponsored events through their group.
