    Welcome to the Bainbridge Island Rowing Junior Team!

    Rowing is a club sport* and we host our website outside the district, https://bainbridgerowing.org/. Rowing takes place at our boathouse in Waterfront Park and out on Eagle Harbor and is open to all Kitsap County students in grades 9 - 12.

    We have 4 distinct seasons. Spring is the official season with less formal summer, fall and winter programs (winter conditioning takes place on land). You are welcome to sign up for any single season or all 4! To progress from novice to varsity, you will need to complete one spring season. 

    BIR welcomes rowers of all shapes, sizes and abilities. Most of our teammates learn the sport in their freshman or sophomore year of high school, so it's not too late to try a new sport! Learn more by visiting our website, or email our coaches with specific questions. 

     *While club sports are recognized as opportunities for our students to engage in specific sports and activities, they are not overseen by the Bainbridge Island School District and are managed by outside independent organizations. As a result, club sports are not district directed and are not subject to the policies and procedures of BISD. It is the responsibility of parents and guardians to research and evaluate the club sport(s) prior to enrolling students.

    Bainbridge Island School District does not sponsor or supervise club sports, and the district assumes no responsibility for club sports’ coaches, volunteers, transportation or any aspect of the club.  Questions related to clearance procedures for club sport volunteers should be directed to the organization directing the activity.  The Bainbridge Island School District shall be held harmless from any cause of action filed in any court or administrative tribunal arising out of allowing the club sports to be listed on the BISD website. This includes costs, attorney's fees, and judgments or awards.
