Green Shoots is a National Programme run in conjunction with Basketball Ireland (BI) and BI Development Officers. The aim of the programme is to develop fundamental movement skills and implement a Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) plan for Basketball Ireland. The Green Shoots Programme will be a fun, enjoyable social activity for children and the skill level of each player will improve. It is the first phase of the national programme which will see 3 levels ie. Green, White and Gold/Orange rolled out aimed at Under 10’s, Under 12’s & Under 14’s. This leads the children on to possible progression to the U15 Regional Academy from which the U16 squad for the Irish National Team will be chosen
