The 9th Annual “Knock Out Cancer” Fundraiser will be held on April 7, 2018 at the South Shore Sports Center. Knock Out Cancer was founded by Paige Kane to raise money and awareness to fight breast cancer and to show support to Janice Mannion as she battled cancer. Janice passed away in March 2016, but her desire that we continue to fight – and one day beat – cancer remains with us.
Each year over 150 girls, boys, women and men participate in fun basketball competitions and bid on valuable silent auction prizes. The Jimmy Fund has received the majority of the funds raised through KOC. Last year, with your help, we exceeded $100,000 contributed to the Jimmy Fund.
Join us this year to have some fun raising money and awareness for breast cancer research. The program will run from 4:30 – 8:00 pm and will include a silent auction and hot shot and knock out contests for girls, boys and adults.

This announcement describes four separate registration requirements for Barker, depending on which program(s) you wish to sign up for.
Barker In-Town - Register your Barker player for the Barker In-Town program for High School & Youth Divisions. Everyone who registers will get assigned to a team and play under our equal playing time rules.
Travel Tryouts - Register your player for Travel Tryouts. Travel teams are competitive tryouts and there is no guarantee that your son will make a travel team. You will not be asked to register and pay for the travel program until your son has been assigned to a team, however, we do need to ask you to register above for our tryout process.
Coaches & Volunteers - Adult registration for prospective Coaches/Volunteers for both Town and Travel
1st Grader Wait List – Register Here. First come first served. You will not need to register for in-town Barker until your son is cleared and placed on a team based on availability. At that time you can come back, register and pay.
We also pleased to announce that registration for our adult volunteers is also now open. All Barker and Travel coaches, assistant coaches, and Barker Organizational position holders must register for three important reasons:
To communicate your interest in offering your time and talent to the Barker Organization during the 2017-2018 season.
To start the process of satisfying the State required CORI requirements.
All coaches will be required to complete concussion awareness training.
Please follow the link below to indicate your interest in volunteering. If Barker doesn’t have a current valid CORI on file for you, you will receive a CORI form to complete and return.

First Graders Wait List
The Barker In-Town program begins in the 2nd grade. In the past, when space in the program allowed, interested 1st graders were allowed to participate. This year we will maintain a separate wait list for first graders. If after the close of registration we still have space on 2nd grade teams, 1st graders will be added to round out those teams on a first come, first serve basis.
To add your First Grader to the Wait List, click the link immediately below:
The Barker Organization is very excited for the approaching season, and we have been working hard in the off-season to make this year another great experience for your player. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email Tim Perkins at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
