Greenshoots Coaching, Activities & Resources


Check out Basketball Ireland's Ball Handling Skills Programme with CJ Fulton, Sorcha Tiernan & Pete Madsen, Green Shoots Coaching Manual downloads and the 28 Day Basketball Skills Challenge below!



Green Shoots Ball Handling Skills Programme:

This programme is aimed at all of our younger members and for those who may not have played the game before. Every Monday, a new video will launch on the Basketball Ireland YouTube channel (YouTube.com/BasketballIreland) and social media platforms. Young players will be taken through the drills by some of the top young talent in the country and the drills will help young players to develop basic basketball skills and keep them active from the comfort of their own home!

The first instalment will feature CJ Fulton, who will cover a number of ball handling skills in the first video, which will launch on Monday, April 13th.

All that you need to take part is a basketball, or if you don’t have a basketball, you can try the skills with any ball you might have at home. You will also need a little bit of space. Speaking about the new initiative, Cork Sports Partnership Basketball Development Officer and Head of Development at Basketball Ireland, Ciaran O’Sullivan said: “During this time with a lot of people having to remain at home it is still important to remain active. Over the next few weeks we will be rolling out our skills programme that can be completed at home and is ideal for those who might have never tried basketball before or for someone trying to keep their skills sharp when regular basketball is not possible. We hope that everyone will get involved and send us in your clips from home!”
