All team sports require values that are fundamental. Team sports are a very effective tool in integrating different cultures with the same objective, practicing the same sport together. From teamwork, sharing space and an activity it is much easier to create community and the feeling of belonging to a group. This is an essential feeling in the situation experienced during the asylum process on the island.
Our volleyball team has found the perfect balance between seriousness in training and fun to enjoy the time together. The team is made up of 16 players with a more than considerable level, and is led by our amazing community coach! However, the team is always ready to welcome new members, regardless of the level they present the most important is the attitude!
The basketball activity is open to everyone, we can’t say that there is a consolidated team. But thanks to this we can say that we have found the perfect tool to introduce everyone to the world of sport, where the most important thing is neither technique nor competitiveness. It’s simply about everyone having a good time together and not letting their bodies rust. It has become one of the activities where we can find more cultural diversity, and where men and women share spaces to enjoy sport together.
As one of the most popular sports in the world, football is one of the most successful activities we have. Our team consists of 20 players.
