About the program:

Cazoo 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 nature. The program has been developed with a focus on social integration in the region, as the club’s 5+11 Foundation works on the promotion of healthy lifestyle habits with local boys and girls. The sport of basketball is used to encourage positive values, such as a healthy lifestyle, respect, teamwork and tolerance. The program is dedicated to children from immigrant backgrounds and those with the potential to become excluded from society. This season, there will be 16 children who participate in Baskonia's One Team program. Two groups have been created involving boys and girls aged 5 to 12, with the program lasting from October to May. The children will participate in activities such as music and yoga workshops, as well as different camps organized by the club and its foundation throughout the year. The program is supported by Michelin.
