HS Bx Team League


Our 2023 Fall Bx season will run from late August through late October or potentially early November (depending on the postseason).

Games begin in September. We hold practices 3x/week, on Tues/Weds/Thurs afternoons from 3:30-5:30 p.m. on the BHS grass fields. We also have Monday conditioning sessions for Varsity players (optional for JV) from 2:00-3:30 at the Commodore fields.

Head coach for Varsity this season will be Sawyer Blair (BHS 2019, Carleton 2023), and JV will be coached by Sam McCarty and Hannah Babcock (no relation to Dave), also Carleton 2023. Sawyer and Sam & Hannah will be supported by the BIU coaching team, including Cath O’Neill, Dave Babcock, Emma Goidel, Jarrett Arakaki, Lisa Timmins, Carmen Tappero, and Ben Klasky.

The teams will participate in DiscNW’s V & JV divisions. Games will be arranged based on teams’ mutual availability, so you can expect some weekday and some weekend games—with half of our games right here on Bainbridge. Check out the calendar page for our latest schedule.

Players will need the following equipment for practice:

Weather is very unpredictable, so players should come prepared for cold and/or wet weather at every practice, regardless of the forecast or how the weather looks in the morning! We will practice in all weather unless it is dangerous (poor air quality, high wind, lightning) or the field is rained out.

Transportation to and from our games is via carpool. As we get close to games we will explain the carpool process in more detail. But parents should be aware and if each family can plan on driving to one or two games throughout the course of the season, it will help us make sure we have enough transportation.
