Paul Carr and Green Shoots Growing Basketball in Dungloe!

Thanks to local coach Paul Carr every Thursday night over 50 young people come together for 2 hours of basketball in Dungloe. At the minute this basketball has a firm emphasis on fun and getting children active but coach Carr has bigger plans. “Only a couple of years ago we had a good junior club here and we would love to see that back again, the kids love basketball and it would be great to have them in the leagues again”.

Last week the kids took part in a Green Shoots session which allows children to learn the game of basketball in a fun environment focusing on physical literacy, basketball skills and the introduction of decision making skills. The kids loved the Green Shoots games with “Wolves and Sheep” a particular favourite in Dungloe.
