Berkshire Bruins Mission Statement

     The mission of the Berkshire Bruins Youth Hockey Organization is to provide a safe environment in which hockey players of all ages can develop.  Through disciplined practice and healthy competition, we not only aim to encourage the physical development and skill acquisition necessary for the game of hockey, but also the dedication to team,  motivation for improvement, and respect for others necessary to the game of life.  We offer this program to all boys and girls who want to play as a way to be healthy, be proud, and create winning relationships on and off of the ice.

Help Us reach our goal!

Almost There!

                                              The Boys and Girls Club of the Berkshires and the Berkshire Bruins set out on a hefty goal in March to replace our current Zamboni ice resurfacer.  The goal seemed insurmountable- The idea that we could raise over $60,000 seemed impossible. The zamboni that we currently have has been in use since 1976, making it 40 years old!

With gracious community and corporate support, WE ARE IN THE HOME STRETCH! We have reached 95% of our goal! But, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please consider a donation to the Zamboni GoFundMe page to help us collect the final $3,000! With just a few more small donations, we can make Pittsfield the permanent home for this beautiful rebuilt machine!

Berkshire County Kids Place Fundraiser

 

This year the Berkshire Bruins are teaming up with the Albany Devils to promote a Group Outing to benefit Berkshire County Kids Place. The Devils will make a donation of $5 per ticket sold when purchased through the link created for our event (and the entire ticket price is cheaper than if you purchased it regularly). This event will take place on March 25, 2017 at 5pm when the Albany Devils take on the Providence Bruins.  It will be our kick off fundraising event leading into April which is Child Abuse Awareness Month.

 

About Berkshire County Kids Place

We are a nationally accredited Children's Advocacy Center that provides services to children who have experienced physical abuse, sexual abuse or witness to violence in the home.  Last year 394 children from our community came to our organization for help after suffering such trauma. Services include streamlining the prosecutorial process through the District Attorney's SAIN Team so that a child is able to only tell their story once to a trained forensic interviewer,  We also have a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner on site for any child that needs an exam and we have 4 therapists on site to help the children on the path to healing.  Our goal is to offer a child-friendly, comfortable environment for the services we provide so children feel safe and at home, not like a medial office or police station.  We offer all of our services at no cost. Learn more about us at www.kidsplaceonline.org.

Help Us Get a New Zamboni!
New Zamboni For BGC Berkshires!

 

 
The Boys and Girls Club of the Berkshires   needs your help raising money for a new Zamboni for our ice rink. 

The ice rink, located on our 3rd floor, is used for a number of different activities such as public skating, figure skating, speed skating, hockey, and so much more!

 The zamboni that we currently have has been in use since 1976, making it 40 years old! Our skaters need a new zamboni they can count on, please help us reach our goal.  

Our facility on Melville Street is the largest Club in the country, with over 120,000 square feet. With our four basketball courts we offer a house basketball league, a travel basketball league and we host many basketball tournaments. With our 25 yard indoor pool, we are the home facility for the high school swim teams in our area, as well as the home facility of the Boys and Girls Club Swim Team “The Gators”. Our ice rink is home to the Taconic High School  hockey team, the Berkshire Bruins youth hockey program, and is the go to place for public skate on the weekends. Aside from our athletic offerings, we have programs that promote healthy lifestyles, team building and more. We offer a leadership group called Keystone, where high school students volunteer to the club. We have a Smart Girls program, which promotes healthy attitudes and life styles among girls ages 8-16. The third floor of our facility is the vocational floor where members can register for cooking classes, woodworking, or they can learn to sew. Not only are we a walk-in facility, but we also have an after school program and a pre-school program where licensed Early Education & Care teachers are able to provide a safe environment where children can grow and learn.

We believe that a good Boys and Girls club provides life-enhancing programs with character development experiences, and faculty that can form caring relationships with our youth. Lastly, we believe that a good club can provide hope and opportunity to each child that walks through our doors. The club serves over 1,000 members of Berkshire County, and your donation will contribute greatly to their future.
