What does Euroleague value of the Valencia Basket project?

In the words of the competition itself, “Valencia Basket focused on developing a network with powerful social media content. They demonstrated what is possible if all available channels are used to spread the One Team message, leaving Valencia fans in no doubt about the positive role their club plays in the local community promoting wellness and inclusion for marginalized teenagers”:


What was our fifth One Team project?

Throughout ten sessions, the fifteen young people belonging to the Ivy Project have learned through the training the rules and basics of basketball as a vehicle to know the values ​​of sacrifice and responsibility that are derived from the organized exercise, to learn how to use Sport as a formula for personal development and as a stimulus to channel their steps so that they can find in the practice of any sport activity a way to grow as people.
