PITTSFIELD, Mass. – The Northern Berkshire Youth Hockey League is excited to accept a Hockey Suite event hosted by Berkshire Bank through which the Bantam team will receive a game day experience in Boston.
The Northern Berkshire Youth Hockey League supports and nurtures hockey for boys and girls ages 4 through high school in Northern Berkshire County and Southern Vermont. The main objective of the league is to provide students with the best available instruction to teach the game of ice hockey, establish core values of USA Hockey and stress the significance of physical fitness.
The team the bank will host for this event is the Bantam team, which includes girls and boys ranging in age from 13 to 15. They will receive transportation to and from the April 1 game as well as the opportunity to watch the hockey game from the Berkshire Bank suite in Boston's TD Garden.
“This is such an incredible experience for these kids to have the opportunity to see their beloved sport on such a grand scale,” said Lisa Lescarbeau, NBYHL Board President. “Thanks to Berkshire Bank, the Bantam team will get to see the Bruins play, a chance that they would not have had otherwise.”
Since 1969, the Northern Berkshire Youth Hockey League has provided a safe, fun environment for youth to learn and play the sport of ice hockey. House and travel programs, including Learn to Skate and Learn to Play, are offered for children ages 4 to 17 in Berkshire County and bordering cities and towns in Vermont and New York.
