Building the FUTURE TODAY
The Tucson Buckets ABA franchise plans to be a pillar in the Tucson community. Our plans to initiate community driven programs throughout the city can only be accomplished by involving companies and people who already have their footprints in our neighborhoods. Our first priority as a basketball organization is to help mature the basketball talent within the city. We look to provide an opportunity for our young athletes to excel and take their game to new levels. Through our team and connections we want to plant seeds for aspiring ball players to take their talent to the higher professional ranks. We are proud to take on the position of assisting our players in reaching their NBA dreams.
With our Junior Buckets program, founded by Coach Mike Rubin of Tucson Country Day Charter School we work diligently on preparing our players to FOCUS on the court and off of it. Starting as young as 1st grade we teach fundamentals and discipline skills that we hope will carry on throughout their lives. We have weekly workshops where we specifically work on bettering our basketball skills. In the two years since we began we have watched our players mature on the court and achieve high rewards in the classroom. Having a strong program that believes in our kids has been the reason we have grown. Teaching our kids about confidence on the basketball court and being friendly competitors has allowed positive things to gravitate to our program.
We also host 3 basketball teams over the summer where we place our young program against some of the more established teams. We relish in those opportunities to change the competitive dynamic in the city for young athletes and our players feel the same. Tucson is a basketball city and the passion that the city has the Tucson Buckets really want to make everyone proud by displaying the same. Junior Buckets has the much appreciated support of our sponsors Test Teachers, Pace Recovery Center, and The Volpe Team at NOVA. We look forward to collaborating with more sponsors and reaching more young athletes in the future.
Basketball has always been an escape from the chaotic world that surrounds us. We have been granted an amazing opportunity to not only be a piece of Tucson history with the ABA team but we can also affect the basketball landscape of the future in the city.
