Fall Adult Leagues

Once again this year, DiscNW offers several fall adult leagues.

The Fall Coed Hat League is a variation on the traditional hat league in which half of each team is drafted and the other half is selected at random. It's a fun league for players of all skill levels, and is a great way to meet new people. Games will be on Friday evenings in Seattle. Registration is now closed.

The Fall Coed Team League is for new or established coed teams. Teams are divided into six divisions based on ability so that opponents exhibit a similar level of play. Games will be on Saturdays in Seattle, Shoreline, and Redmond. Registration is now closed.

The Tacoma Fall Indoor Hat League is run in partnership with Tacoma Metro Parks District. Indoor ultimate is exceptionally dynamic, with constant action. As soon as a team scores, the other team takes over on offense. We play on a large basketball court with small end zones. Court/tennis shoes are recommended. Games will be played on Wednesday evenings at Truman Middle School.

Registration is now open for the Olympia Fall Hat League. This is the tenth annual fall hat league in Olympia. This league will be somewhat more competitive than the spring league in Olympia. Games will take place on Monday evenings.

Stay tuned for news about the Fall Tacoma (outdoor) Hat League.

 

Regional Fall Tournaments

Two of the Northwest's favorite Halloween traditions return in 2016.


Hosted by the Victoria Players Society, Pumpkin Pull will take place on October 22-23 in Victoria, BC. Registration is now open for this coed team event. This is a popular tournament and only 22 teams can attend.

Keep checking the website for updates, special hotel rates and registration. Please e-mail the TDs at pumpkinpull@gmail.com with any questions.


The Hanford Howl is a mixed Halloween Ultimate tournament hosted by the Desert Lorax in Richland, WA as a fundraiser for Special Olympics.

The mission of the Hanford Howl is to promote charity, community building, and spirited competition through the sport of Ultimate while dressed in creative team-themed costumes with related shenanigans.

This year, all proceeds are donated to Special Olympics of Washington and Three Rivers Ultimate (our Tri-Cities youth Ultimate program).
