About the program:
London Lions has launched its debut One Team program together with Safe Haven Basketball, an institution that provides coaching and communication skills to young people aged 14-24 with Special Educational Needs (SEN). The club's One Team program is delivered to 15 young people with special education needs. The objective of the project is to give young people the opportunity to become active through basketball, as they look to engage, learn life skills that will help them in their daily lives and meet new people. These weekly sessions will take place in Lambeth, South London and are led by members of the London Lions's coaching staff, together with experienced volunteers from Safe Haven Basketball. The program is supported also by The Black Prince Trust.
