PITTSFIELD, Mass. – The Berkshire Family YMCA Pittsfield Branch is now accepting registrations for its CYC Basketball program for all boys and girls ages 4 to 12th grade. Facilitated by the Y's Pittsfield branch at 292 North St., with practice and game locations at gyms throughout Pittsfield, the league’s dates are from Nov. 9 through mid-March.
 
The Y's CYC Basketball House League provides a high-quality experience to every athlete, especially those who need it most. Every athlete is coached using the principles of positive coaching; has fun at practices and games; feels like an important part of the team regardless of performance; has respect for self, team-mates, coaches and officials; learns “life lessons” that have value beyond the court; and learns the skills, tactics and strategies of the game and improves as a player.
 
The Y is seeking volunteer coaches for the CYC Basketball House and Travel Leagues. The Y recognizes that coaches are the people who most directly make this all possible. The Y is committed to creating a positive culture, in which coaches, parents, officials and athletes work together to achieve our mission. In your role as a volunteer coach, you will work with our youth program members on skill development, safety, fair play, sportsmanship, and fun! The right candidate possesses organizational skills, patience, maturity, and dependability, along with sound character, strong morals, values, and personal ethics. CORI checks are required.

Pittsfield Preparing Morningside Fire Station RFP

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city plans to reissue another request for proposals for the Morningside fire station with developers' interest ramping up.
 
The City Council on Tuesday heard from Paula Messena during public comment who said she and her partner Scott Graves were interested in developing the long vacant fire station.
 
"I stand before you today publicly announcing our interest in the Morningside fire station," she said. "Scott Graves and I have shown on numerous occasions interest in the building but have never officially been acknowledged by the city."
 
Graves purchased the YMCA boathouse on Pontoosuc Lake and renovated it as the Rusty Anchor. He recently ran in the preliminary election for mayor on a platform focused on the red tape he says makes it difficult for developers to save old buildings and start businesses.
