About Us

Shoot for Success is a small Scottish charity which has been delivering basketball coaching and personal development opportunities to children and young people in the East End of Glasgow since May 2004 in partnership with Glasgow City Basketball Club.

The inspiration for the programme is to introduce more children and young people into the world of sport using basketball to;

  • Promote an alternative healthy lifestyle
  • Instil a positive sense of purpose through developing life and social skills, respect for oneself and others
  • To reduce isolation and promote integration in young people from vulnerable backgrounds such as disabilities, refugees, asylum seekers, black and minority groups.
  • Reduce the temptation of other negative influences by providing positive role models.

By providing a sustainable pathway from recreation to competition to allow youngsters the opportunity to progress to the level of their interest and ability.

This is achieved through the provision of sessions in schools and community facilities as well as Festivals and Basketball camps during the school holidays.

We also aim to provide young people with skills and volunteering opportunities to increase their employability through our training programmes.
