Website Registration Changes Coming

Exciting changes are coming to the DiscNW online registration systems, in partnership with Ultimate Central!

We’ve all benefited from Jeff Dairiki and the DiscNW web team’s amazing work for 13+ years: their countless hours made sure each of us could seamlessly sign up for events, manage electronic waivers, organize teams, RSVP for games, and so much more. As a community, we thank them for their hard work and many, many contributions.

This is the tech industry – the pace of keeping up only speeds up. The systems needed to support smooth mobile integration and custom registration options are beyond what a part-time, volunteer staff can accomplish quickly--no matter how amazing they are. The decision to outsource our registration was not an easy one, but we did it to offer each of you, the players, the most modern interface possible with the best use of resources.

Ultimate Central’s (UC) feature-rich platform may look and feel different, but you’ll be able to do everything you can do now and more. Sunbreak players are already testing the UC new registration system and helping work out some kinks.

Summer leagues will continue on our current website, and we anticipate fall programs to transition to the new platform.

We will provide info and resources for captains, coaches, and coordinators before the transition.

Our partnership with UC allows DiscNW to leverage aspects of their platform, such as team communication tools, and work with UC to develop website features together, such as a new Gender Inclusion-friendly registration process.

If you have questions about these changes, or are familiar with UC’s platform and have suggestions, please reach out to our E.D. DiscNW will send a survey to inform our design decisions within a few weeks.

Registration is still open for our youth summer camps

There is still lots of room in all of our summer camps!

Campers develop relationships & communication skills in various games and team challenges, practice implementation of rules knowledge, develop discernment as they consider calls being made, advocate for themselves as they learn to make calls, and grow through self-reflection after activities.

Our camps are a great way for new players to learn the game and an awesome way for experienced players to work toward mastering established skills and develop new ones.

For more information about all your youth camps and available scholarships, please refer to the Youth Camps Page.
