The Bow Athletic Club Mission

Full participation by all is the most important part of youth athletics!


The Bow Athletic Club (BAC) was founded in 1974 as a private, non-profit organization to foster the participation of the town’s children in available sports programs.


The BAC coordinates programs in basketball; baseball/softball (Bow Cal Ripken); field hockey; lacrosse (Bow Youth Lacrosse); and soccer for grades one - twelve to complement or supplement existing Town of Bow Recreation programs and Town of Bow school teams.


In keeping with our belief that every child who wants to play will play, the BAC has a tradition of creating additional teams, and even leagues, to give everyone a chance to play.


Our board of directors consists of community volunteers, each of whom shares in the various responsibilities of recruiting coaches and officials, scheduling, game management, and other duties. Meetings are held monthly with elections at the January Annual Meeting. Meetings are open to the public and all are welcome and encouraged to attend.


BAC programs are not funded by town taxes. Money is raised through sponsorships, fund-raisers and donations from individuals and organizations, including the Bow Rotary Club and the Bow Men’s Club.


Registration fees are modest and equipment and financial scholarships are available,  to help meet the goal of giving every child a chance to play.


Thank you to all who have supported the Bow Athletic Club. Our continued success rests with those who volunteer their time and spirit. Anyone interested in becoming a part of this exciting and rewarding effort is invited to contact a BAC officer or director.
