About the program:
Paris Basketball has organized its first-ever One Team program alongside Futbol Mas, a foundation which supports refugees and asylum seekers by using sport as a tool in its development programs. The One Team program implemented by Paris got underway in November 2022 and includes a total of eight sessions, with the One Team coaches organizing different basketball activities focused on communication, inclusion, and team building. The objective is to support refugees and better integrate them into the Parisian community. The program is open to both males and females between 17 and 20, and it takes place in the 13th arrondissement in Paris. Paris's partner, Adidas, is supporting the program by providing free equipment and transportation for the participants. First-team player Dustin Sleva and former player Amara Sy will take the roles of One Team Ambassadors to support and promote the program.
