DiscNW is an educational, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1995 to promote and support the sport of Ultimate. DiscNW was incorporated with a mission to "serve as a regional resource, promoting growth in the sport of Ultimate and instilling the spirit of sportsmanship at all levels of play." Unlike with other sports organizations, it is intrinsic to DiscNW's mission to promote and teach mutual respect and fair play, demonstrate the value of team sports for health and social benefits, encourage women in co-ed recreation and perform outreach in the community. The notion of sportsmanship or the "Spirit of the Game" has guided the agency and defines the organizational culture.
The first unofficial Seattle Ultimate "league" started in 1984 at Magnuson Park with an estimated five teams and fifty people. The demand for Ultimate grew and DiscNW now has year-round leagues that serve over 6000 people. The association carries out its mission under the leadership of an Executive Director, 10 Board members, and the dedication of countless volunteers.
