Observed on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on the holidays and end-of-year giving. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving focused on raising funds for social impact. #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy. Steady Buckets is committed to helping boys and girls in NYC achieve athletic, academic, and personal success through basketball. This year, our membership has reached over 850 players, traveling from all 5 boroughs and over 50 zip codes. Our success is a testament to the quality and growing popularity of our program. As our numbers expand, so too must our funding. Steady Buckets receives no government funding. 100% of our funding comes from our families, friends and community. Your donation helps us rent gym time, pay our full time and teen-age coaching staff & buy new equipment. While no donation is required, we hope all families will take this opportunity to contribute to Steady Buckets this holiday Season - no gift is too big or too small.

How Steady Buckets Works

Steady Buckets is an innovative basketball, physical fitness and life skills development program for boys and girls ages 4-18 in the greater New York City area. The program’s objective is to develop hard working, resilient, empathetic and confident individuals who will make a positive contribution to their communities. Free of charge, Steady Buckets (SB), is open to all children who are willing to work hard to maximize their potential.

To register (steadybuckets.leagueapps.com), a parent/ guardian must first set up a family account and then select the appropriate age group for their child. The “U” stands for “and under” so 6U is for 4, 5, and 6 year olds, 8U is for 7 and 8 year olds, 10U is for 9 and 10 year olds, etc.  

Once registering for our Fall Season players are welcome to join any of our workouts listed on the SB Calendar below (YMCA workouts require registering and processing payment with the Chinatown Y. This class has a fee of $30 per workout; $25 for Y members. You can call the Chinatown YMCA at 212-912-2460). 

All weekday and Sunday workouts are open to players of all ages. Upon arriving players will then be broken into smaller groups within the workout.  Saturday sessions are age specific and players can only attend the workout that they are registered for.

Weekday workouts are 2-hours long with an emphasis on shooting and ball handling skills.  Weekend workouts are 3-hours long including a 45-minute warmup, 90-minutes of basketball training and scrimmage games, and a 45-minute cool down session including stretching, yoga and meditation.

The best way to understand how SB works is to show up for a training session, but if you have specific questions or concerns please call Coach Macky at 646-734-4395.

“Out Work ‘Em!”

To Be Successful In Our Program, Kids Have To Learn To Engage And Partner With Others, Leave Their Comfort Zones and Become Leaders Within Our Diverse Environment.
