Il Futurosa Basket Trieste nasce nel 2009 con l’ambizione di incrementare e sviluppare il movimento cestistico femminile in una citta “di basket” come è Trieste.

Sin da subito si è mossa promuovendo l’attività dedicata alle scuole offrendo la possibilità alle bambine e ai bambini di svolgere e migliorare le prestazioni motorie, secondo itinerari graduali e processi di avviamento al gioco sportivo di squadra, introducendo pian piano la pallacanestro.

Ad oggi, oltre ad un’importante crescita nel settore minibasket, attività dedicata alle età di 6 -11 anni partecipa ai campionati Esordienti, Under 13, Under 16 e Under 18 femminili.
