 GOLDEN KNIGHTS GIRLS YOUTH BASKETBALL PROGRAM

The Golden Knights Girls Youth Basketball Program teaches basketball to schoolgirls in grades K through 8 in the Berkshire Hills Regional School District in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. The program is run by volunteers who coach and teach basketball to the girls in the program, administer the program, referee and score keep the games, and perform other duties necessary to support a successful basketball program. The program consists of practices, a house league, and traveling teams. The practices teach the girls the fundamentals, skills, rules, and strategies of basketball. The house league is made up of teams consisting of the girls in the program and play games against each other during the basketball season. The traveling teams consist of girls with a strong commitment to dedicating the time necessary to play more competitive basketball offered by the traveling teams.

The Golden Knights Program has three traveling teams, the 3rd/4th grade traveling team, the 5th/6th grade traveling team, and the 7th/8th grade traveling team. The traveling teams play in the Berkshire County Girls Basketball League, play independent games against teams in other leagues, and play in tournaments. A highlight of the Golden Knights Program is the annual Golden Knights Schoolgirl Invitational Basketball Tournament hosted by the traveling teams. This tournament has a 5th/6th Grade Division and a 7th/8th Grade Division. The tournament has drawn teams from throughout New England, New York state, and Canada. Besides providing competitive basketball competition, the tournament is the primary fund-raiser for the Golden Knights Girls Youth Basketball Program.

The Golden Knights Program has established a tradition of supporting the fight against breast cancer in women. A goal of the Golden Knights Tournament is to heighten awareness of breast cancer and to use the tournament as a fundraiser to help find a cure of breast cancer.

The success of the Golden Knights Program and Tournaments can be attributed to the many volunteers who plan, coach, scorekeep, provide rides, officiate house league games, participate in fundraisers, and participate in preparing for, setting up and working during the Golden Knights Tournaments. Many volunteers are parents of the girls in the Golden Knights Program. A few people actively work in the program long after their daughters have left the program or have never had a daughter in the program. The Golden Knights Volunteer Awards recognize these people.
