Green Shoots Programme

The Green Shoots programme is a national youth basketball programme that is designed to develop fundamental movement skills and implement a LTAD (Long Term Athlete Development) plan for Basketball Ireland. Our goal is to make basketball a fun, enjoyable and social activity for children.

All participants will learn the fundamental movement skills at the appropriate stages of development. Basic skills such as balance, running form, jumping, and landing, throwing and catching will be introduced at the appropriate stage of development. Through proper training in movement, children will develop an appreciation for physical activity and properly execute sport-specific skills.
