Dear SB community,

On behalf of the Steady Buckets board of directors, our coaches, volunteers, families and most importantly, the kids, I'd like to invite you to attend our Annual Ballers Benefit.  Many of you have been around from the beginning and have watched SB grow, others are new to Steady Buckets. Everyone should know this is the event where we raise a majority of our annual budget, which makes everything we do possible. Steady Buckets receives no government funding. Our budget is raised 100% from within our community, and it is your generosity that makes this special program inclusive to all NYC youth.
In 2016, SB served over 1000 boys and girls, and provided 289 days of programing, amounting to 1,463 hours on the court. We procured three state of the art shooting machines, launched affordable summer camp, and introduced yoga sessions to our curriculum. We secured more gym space, hired more coaches, and expanded our reach to 128 NYC zip codes.
Please take a moment to RSVP, donate an item to our auction and invite a friend. Printable copies of our invitation, RSVP card and auction donation form are attached at If you are unable to attend, please consider making a donation. No gift is too big or too small.

Please help us make May 4th a special night for everyone involved with Steady Buckets, and help keep SB free and open to all NYC youth!

Thank you.

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 (, 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 2017 Winter 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 weekend open workouts are open to players of all ages. Upon arriving players will then be broken into smaller groups within the workout, appropriate to their age and skill level.

Weekday workouts are 2-hours long with an emphasis on shooting and ball handling skills.  Weekend workouts 40 minutes and run non-stop all day.

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.
