This study investigated effects of a prophylactic warm-up programme on functional movement screen (FMS) in young basketball players. Twenty-four female players in a high school basketball league were recruited and assigned to two groups. The experimental group performed prophylactic warm-up and the control group performed regular warm-up for 15 minutes per day, five days per week for 12 weeks. Seven measurements in FMS were collected before and after training. A 2-way analysis of variance (group by time) with repeated measures on the second factor was used to analyze data. There were group by time interactions in deep squat, hurdle step, in-line lunge, active straight-leg raise and total scores of FMS. There were significant group differences in deep squat, hurdle step, in-line lunge, active straight-leg raise, rotary stability and total scores of FMS. There were significant differences in deep squat, hurdle step, trunk stability push-up, rotary stability and total scores of FMS in experimental group before and after training (p
