The first and second place team in each group will receive a gold championship ring and the first place team in the 15-18 and 19-up age groups will receive a cash prize dependent on the number of entries.

“Great prizes,” Bainbridge Public Safety officer and Kids ‘n Kops coordinator Kenneth Ellison said. “Nice gold ring for championship and if permitted, enough funding comes through, it’ll be $225 to the winner for the open and $150 for 15 to 18 league.”

The event is being held to support Kids ‘n Kops ongoing efforts in the community.

“All proceeds be going to Kids ‘n Kops for the summer camp,” Ellison said. “So fishing, hunting and camping.”

Teams can register in advance online at, at city hall or at Bainbridge Public Safety. They can also register at the event on Saturday.
