RISING ELITE TEAM BUDDY BUCKETS

RISING ELITE – ADVANCED, COMPETITIVE ACTION

Solid Rock Basketball is partnered with the “Buddy Buckets” basketball program. This program was founded by former University of Oklahoma great and current NBA player for the Sacramento Kings, Buddy Hield. Team Buddy Buckets has been enormously successful in boys basketball at the High School level over the past few years. Now we continue to grow that success at the youth level for grades 2nd-8th for both Boys and Girls.

Team Buddy Buckets has two types of teams within the program: Rising Elite Team Buddy Buckets (competitive/advanced) & Team Buddy Buckets League (beginner/intermediate).

Rising Elite Team Buddy Buckets teams are HIGHLY COMPETITIVE tournament teams. These teams participate at the local and perhaps regional level in advanced competitive tournament play. These teams are specifically for advanced, committed players in each division.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Rising Elite Buddy Buckets teams are for:

  • 2nd-8th grade boys and girls
  • players that are committed, competitive and experienced

By partnering with Team Buddy Buckets and their upper-level program, our players will get a chance to represent, play for and develop with the strong, growing Buddy Buckets brand. We are extremely excited to be able to work with the leadership of the Buddy Buckets organization in working together to help create a youth basketball program that is innovative, forward thinking, encouraging, and most importantly fun and memorable for all players and families involved.

We want to challenge and mentor our young athletes through our passion: basketball. Solid Rock Basketball continues to be serious about the teaching of the skills and fundamentals of basketball and we believe that to succeed, players must first learn these proper skills and foundations and grow from there.

The Solid Rock Staff will work hard to get your team in the best possible place for growth and court time.

  • WHAT IS TEAM BUDDY BUCKETS?

    • Our Team Buddy Buckets rosters are filled with individuals from 2ND-8TH GRADE.
      Our Team Program strives to teach our players that there is no substitute for working together as a unit with other individuals to attain growth, improvement, and success.
    • Players in this program should be fully committed to putting in the time, dedication, and consistent hard work to become a better basketball player on the court as well as a dedicated individual off the court.
  • HOW DO I PAY?

    • There is a monthly team fee that is taken as an auto draft payment each month and there is an upfront, one time cost for the uniform.
  • HOW DO I JOIN A CLUB TEAM?

    • The only way to be placed on a Buddy Buckets Team is to attend the Evaluation Tryout Combine held before each of these seasons.
    • At the evaluation, players are put through multiple skill work drills, as well as 3 on 3 and/or 5 on 5 playing.
    • We have experienced coaches running and evaluating the participants
    • Players will then be placed on teams following the combine*

    *NOTE: Not all players that attend our combine are guaranteed a roster spot. Please keep in mind that there are many factors in the creation of our teams. We take the process of creating our teams seriously and do try to make the experience the best we can for all involved.

  • WHAT IS INCLUDED WHEN I’M ON A  BUDDY BUCKETS TEAM?

    The team participant will be involved in:

    • One skill practice a week at Buddy Buckets Basketball Academy – We make sure to offer our skills sessions, taught by championship level coaches and the best in Oklahoma, as a part of our Buddy Buckets Team package.
    • Two team practices/week for Rising Elite teams. One team practice a week for League teams.
    • A quality Nike reversible Buddy Buckets uniform to be worn for all games and/or tournaments
    • Various tournaments and/or 3 on 3 leagues or tournaments (seasonal).
      – Activities sometimes vary team to team depending on the season and league/tournament competition availability.
