The Jr. Buckets Health Club is our way to raise awareness about the many health epidemics affecting our community every day. We realized that 20% of the youth here in Arizona are Obese, we feel an obligation to make a difference, working with our young men to fight ailments like diabetes, obesity, heart disease and various mental health issues plaguing our community as well. We believe a true understanding of nutritious and healthy lifestyle decisions can make a major difference in your childs performance in school and on the basketball court.
Our program is geared toward youth boys and young adult males through creative athletic, health & nutrition awareness and social development programs. We will unite a committed group of coaches, mentors and associates with our youth and work to foster strong social skills for young men ages 10-19, while promoting youth nutrition in Tucson. We will participate in competitive basketball leagues and work to create opportunities for each member to reach their personal, academic and athletic goals throughout high school and their collegiate journey.
