The Fall Draft/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.

News

The men's lottery deadline has now passed.  No additional players will be accepted into the league at this point.


Information

The fall draft/hat league is a 4:3 co-ed league. Players sign up to play as individuals, and then are either drafted or assigned onto a team. Captains participate in a live draft and are allowed to draft half of their team.

Players who sign up with buddies will automatically be drafted together, but you may only buddy with one other person (and they also need to buddy with you).  A man buddied with a woman will automatically bypass the lottery if the woman has paid her registration fee prior to the lottery.

The league player fee is $75.35 (includes sales tax). 

Men, please note that there will be a lottery to allocate spots in the league. Men that sign up as buddies with other men are still considered separately in the lottery.

This league is appropriate for players of all experience levels.

Games will be on Friday evenings.

Fields

We will use only synthetic turf fields in Seattle for the league this year.  Check the field permit here:

They are welcome on leash everywhere else in the park system, and there are other off-leash areas where they can romp without leashes.  All our fields are turf, last we checked dogs and turf aren't good for each other.  Please leave Fluffy at home on game days.
