The Tucson Buckets teams include students from TCDS as well as many other local schools. They practice at TCDS and some indoor gyms. Games are held at YMCA, LEAD Athletics, Sporting Chance Center and tournaments in various locations around town.

Currently there are four Tucson Buckets basketball teams: one with 3rd-4th grade students, one for 5th-6th grade students, and two teams for 7th-9th grade students.
