About

debut

Behind the Bench made its debut in 2005 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Created as an educational program, the goal was to provide young people with a hands on experience covering a youth basketball tournament. 

launch

We launched by covering the Who’s The Man?/Can She Hang? regional championship which was sponsored by the New York Knicks. This fun and competitive event got over 10,000 boys and girls active throughout the New York Tri-State area.

Mission

From the beginning, the mission has been to educate and empower the next generation of sports content creators and industry professionals.
