Lithuanian club BC Lietkabelis Panevezys has a brand new One Team program, aiming to use the power of basketball to integrate socially sensitive groups into the local community.
Lietkabelis is starting its first season with the program, with the team’s coach Gintaras Kadziulis and point guard Lorenzo Williams serving as One Team Ambassadors to support a program which will see the participants address important life topics through the enjoyment of basketball.
The club has partnered with Panevezys College to run activities with the Panevezys Algimantas Bandza Infant and Child Care Home.
The 8-week program works with a group of 30 participants aged from 8 to 18 years old and aims to develop important life skills such as communication, team-work, leadership and respect in both on and off the court.
