Allatoona Jr. Buccaneers Girls Basketball Program

Allatoona Jr. Buccaneers Girls Basketball Program

Overview:  The Allatoona Jr. Basketball Girls Program is a developmental program for 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls who want to play competitive basketball against other school teams in Cobb, Cherokee, Paulding and N. Fulton counties. There are four girl’s teams, one for each middle school grade level and one at the 5th grade elementary level. The purpose of the program is to work on fundamentals and develop players for the high school program.  Varsity Girls Coach Michael Taylor regards the Junior program as a needed building block of the Allatoona High School basketball program. 

Requirements & Tryouts:  You must live in the Allatoona school district to play on the Jr. Buc team. Try outs are conducted in the fall at Durham M.S. and Allatoona High School and scheduled tryout dates are posted on the Allatoona website.

Practices:  Practices are held at Allatoona High School.  Teams typically practice twice per week.  Practices are typically 1 ½ 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, Fulton County, Paulding County and Cherokee High School feeder program 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 or middle schools.

Volunteer Duties: The assistance of parents is required to ensure the success of the program. Concession duty along with the scorebook and clock are volunteer duties.  Each team has a team manager to handle administrative responsibilities.

Fees: Player package costs usually start at around $400. There will be payment plans available subject to the approval of the Treasurer of the Allatoona Booster Board.
