Everyone - from seasoned veterans to beginners, from professional players to Verns League players, from 8-year-olds to 108-year-olds - is encouraged to play in this fun event! Bring your friends, parents, nieces, and nephews and introduce them to this awesome sport while supporting DiscNW's youth ultimate programming throughout the region.

In addition to the Ultimate games in the morning, we will provide a picnic lunch and carnival/skills games in the afternoon. . .with prizes!

The event will take place from 9am to 3:30pm at Magnuson Park Sports Meadow.  Players should arrive at 8:30am to warm up and sign in.

Field Day is a fundraising event to support the Youth Development Fund (YDF) and the Youth Club Championship Scholarship Fund (YCCSF).   These funds allow us to promote youth ultimate to new groups, support the participation of underserved populations, and provide financial aid for players both playing in local events and traveling to represent Seattle at the USA Ultimate Youth Club Championships in August.
