BAINBRIDGE - Even with the start of school still weeks away, the Bainbridge High School Spartan football boosters are hard at work gearing up for this year’s preseason events. Some staple calendar items are set to return, in addition to several team firsts.

Action kicks off Saturday, Aug. 16, as the first-ever Spartan Bowl is slated to be held at the high school. Alumni, junior and current varsity team members will come together for a tournament of flag football followed by a family-friendly luau.

Then, on Monday, Aug. 18, the team begins their annual preseason retreat. This yearly season kickoff event includes a camp out at the high school, an early morning run through town and a special visit to the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum.

Training Camp and mandatory practices officially begin Wednesday, Aug. 20. This is especially important for those

players looking to get some gridiron time this year, as state regulations require a player have completed at least 12 practices to eligible for game play. There will only be 14 practice opportunities before the season opener against North Kitsap High (currently scheduled for Friday, Sept. 5).
