POINT OF STRENGHT
Orange1 Basket Bassano has always been attentive and open to external stimuli, so has to have continuous and constant growth. For this reason, every month we invite professionals from other European clubs. Likewise, our coaches visit other clubs in order to update themselves on new winning programs for young people in Europe. Through the creation of Basketball Coach Ability, our stuff is a virtual reference point for professionals updates of all Italian coaches.
Orange1 Basket Bassano is one of the most solid clubs in Italy. Investing in the recruitment and development of both Italian and foreign young players is one of the club’s main objectives. Orange Basket Bassano is a non-profit company. The ‘Reason Why’ is to offer young people a solid and quality future, based not only on sports but also on human and educational growth.
Having as support a prestigious and solid brand like Orange1 is a guarantee, not only economic but also of growth.

HIGH LEVEL EDUCATION
CHAMPIONS ALSO AT SCHOOL
Our philosophy is to offer players a first-level education. Not only because it is a mandatory requirement for a possible future in College, but also because our mission is to grow our athletes with a high level of culture as well as prepare them to have the dedication to study first and the ability to work in the future. School learning skills and the predisposition to sacrifice are priority aspects even during the recruitment of athletes.
The boys are constantly followed by the tutors of the club and the coaches have strict rules in case of bad school performance. The person responsible of the school area is in charge of supervising this aspect and is always available to both athletes and their parents.
With many of them we have been collaborating for years. The consideration and choice of the school takes place after an interview with our head of the School Area. Bassano offers a wide choice: middle schools, two public scientific high schools, a technical commercial institute, a professional institute and other arts and crafts institutes, as well as a private school with which we are affiliated that includes both a linguistic high school and a technical institute. Our club is also able to host athletes who have enrolled in national or international online schools
