Class

Our classes follow a structured curriculum created by certificated educators and certified coaches based on Basketball Canada's Long-Term Athlete Development Model. This model sets the stage for the development of youth physical literacy and basketball skills. Our student athletes will develop in the areas of Stamina, Strength, Speed, Skill, and Flexibility, which are key components to any physical activity, particularly in basketball. Our goal is for our student athletes to become more physically literate, becoming better movers, while engaging in basketball. Based on an evaluation, student athletes are placed into the appropriate Buckets Basketball level by skill level and age.

League

League play consists of 3 vs 3 full court games/scrimmages played on modified basketball courts which are scaled to a size that is a perfect fit for Buckets Basketball players, smaller courts and lower rims. 3 vs 3 basketball encourages and allows for each player to be more involved in the game. Everyone gets to touch the ball and play an important role. Buckets Basketball provides all the coaching, score keeping and game monitoring allowing family members to fill the role of supportive spectators. The Buckets Basketball League is an extension of Buckets Basketball Classes. Players will be placed on teams and we will do our best to allow siblings and friends to play together.

 

Players are designated to teams solely on age.

The most skilled athletes in any sport tend to be the best movers. Boosters are designed for student athletes to be exposed to an increased frequency of fundamental movement skills. Sessions are filled with physical literacy skills that student athletes can apply to any movement based activity.  These sessions are not specific to basketball, but will contribute to a student athlete's basketball growth.
