About the program: Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia is running its first One Team program called: “I primi fanno gioco di squadra” a project created with the company Reggiana Gourmet, based in Reggio Emilia, and in partnership with the not-for-profit profit association “Scuola di Tifo”.
The project has two main targets: first, to teach primary school children how to positively support their favorite team, without offending, degrading or insulting the opponents. This idea aims to create a friendly atmosphere during sporting events and promotes the message that opponents are just opponents and not enemies.
Second, due to the increasing number of food disorders in the youngest generations, this project aims to educate how to have a healthy diet, using professional athletes as an example and with the support of an expert nutritionist.
The program will include around 500 young people during the time it runs and will work with both boys and girls who are between 8 and 11 years old. The One Team Coaches will work on the program for 5 hours per week for 8 weeks.
