Allatoona Jr. Buccaneers Boys Basketball Program

Overview: The Allatoona Jr. Basketball Program is a developmental program for 6th, 7th and 8th grade young men who want to play competitive basketball against other school teams in Cobb, Cherokee and N. Fulton counties. There are three teams, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. The purpose of the program is to work on fundamentals and develop players for the high school program.

Requirements & Tryouts: You must live in the Allatoona school district to play on the Jr. Buc team. There will be several try outs in September and I ask you to please check the Junior Bucs website frequently for updates.

Practices: Practices are held at Allatoona High School. Teams typically practice twice per week. Practices are typically 1 -2 hours long.

Games: The Allatoona Jr. Buc program participates in the Cobb-Cherokee Junior Basketball Conference (www.ccjbc.com). The conference is made up of other Cobb County and Cherokee High School feeder program teams along with some N. Fulton teams.

Conference games begin in November with pre-season tournaments in October or November and possible holiday tournaments during Thanksgiving and Christmas break. The regular schedule consists of 2 games weekly, primarily on weekends, but some weeknights. Conference play goes through January and finishes with a CCJBC tournament in February. Home games are played at Allatoona High School and away games are played at opposing teams high schools.
