2014 will be the third year of Winter Women's League.  This is an eight-week draft league for women 18 and older of ALL SKILL LEVELS to play single-gender ultimate in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. New this year, there is also an optional clinic session for newer, beginning players before the season starts.

The league costs $59.24, which covers jerseys, fields, prizes, and administrative expenses.  Any proceeds from the league will benefit DiscNW's Youth Development Fund.
