Spring team league provides a venue for coed teams at all levels to play in a competitive league. The league is divided into pools based on ability, so whether you are one of the best teams in town, or a group of relative newcomers, you can expect close games at your level. At the end of the season, all teams participate in league playoffs with bragging rights for the year at stake.

Parking Update:

The main parking lot closest to the Sports Meadow is going away, and construction is underway. If you have a game at Magnuson this season please use the parking lot near the Sand Point fields. Take the walking path that starts near the kids playground. This path leads directly to the playfields. Please leave yourself a little extra time.

Information


Basics

  • All games will be played on Sundays starting on March 9th and ending on May 18th.
  • Playoffs will be on the weekend of May 31 - June 1.
  • Gender ratio is 4:3 men:women. If you don't have 3 women you'll have to play down.
  • All teams must complete a roster.


Masters Division

New in 2008 Spring League will have its own masters division. In the past all the teams with older players have requested to play against each other. Let's celebrate our community elders by creating a division just for them!

We are hoping to fill this division with 8-10 teams. These teams will all play each other once during the course of the regular season. The masters teams will also play a few crossover games against non-masters teams to round out the schedule. There will not be a separate playoffs for the division - masters teams will be mixed up with the non-masters teams for playoff brackets.

Teams can have no more than 3 players under the age of 30 on their roster. Only teams that would otherwise play in the B or C pool of Spring League can play in the Masters Division (sorry Santas, you're old enough, but you're too good).

If you have any questions about the Masters Division please contact the League Coordinators at .


Registration

Online registration is now closed! The team fee this year has increased to $625. This is the first team league fee increase in 3 years. We need to raise the price in order to keep up with rising field costs. Questions about this increase should be emailed to the Executive Director at .

Please note: We will do our best to accommodate all schedule requests. However, please limit your weekend off request to a max of 2. Any more than that and we may not be able to schedule you for a full slate of games (we're aiming to get 12 regular season games per team again in 2008).

Payment is accepted online. Checks are also accepted. Mail payment to...

  • DiscNW
  • Attn: Spring League
  • PO Box 85112
  • Seattle, WA 98145

Team fees are due by the close of registration - February 25. If you don't pay by the deadline you won't play in the league. Teams that have not paid the fees in full by the deadline will have their registrations canceled, and their spot in the league may be given to a team on the waitlist. Click here for the DiscNW Payment Policy.

If you have registered and intend to play, but for some reason you can't pay the league fee by the 25th please contact the League Coordinators right away at .
