We are All One Team
ONE TEAM is the Corporate Social Responsibility Program of Euroleague, that started on 2012 with 8 participating teams (Olympiacos BC, Real Madrid, CSKA Moscow, Armani Milano, Unicaja Malaga, Anadolu Efes, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Alba Berlin). The aim of the program is that every basketball team will develop a tailor made program, that will help a vulnerable group from the problem of social exclusion that may be facing. Since 2012, when ONE TEAM begun, the participating teams have raised and numbers directly and indirectly 23.000 people.
Basketball, and sports in general, is one of the best mediums for one to communicate their message through the joy that the game offers. Through ONE TEAM, Olympiacos BC helps in the socialization process of the groups, by giving the opportunity to the kids to explore their capacities, feel like they belong to a team and interact with their peers. Every drill of the program serves a double purpose, to educate at first and also entertain by bringing out the excitement and joy of a game.
One Team continues running the sessions even on line to its participants when the circumstances of pandemic doesn’t allow live sessions in order to keep them focus to their program.
