Due to budget constraints with the Bainbridge High School (BHS) Athletic Department, the high school has decided to have ALL club sports** removed from their responsibility. BHS will no
longer be a conduit for the player's physical forms, volunteers/driver's background checks or checking player's academic grades. The High School players will only register with Bainbridge Water
Polo Club. Bainbridge High School's Policy concerning Club sports can be viewed at the BHS athletic website.
