Headlines

DiscNW is not running a single-gender high school team league this spring.  Instead, the leagues will be run independently by several local schools, with a boys' league in the fall and a girls' league in the spring.  Seattle teams who wish to play in the 2012 USA Ultimate Washington State Championship must participate in the school-organized single-gender league as a prerequisite (teams from outside of Seattle will have alternative qualifying opportunities for the state championship).  If your high school team wishes to play in a single-gender league this spring (girls) or next fall (boys), or in the Washington State Championship in 2012, please contact Northwest School Athletic Directors Britt Atack () and Mike Mullen () for more information on the school-organized single-gender events.  Planning is already well underway for the spring girls' league, so please contact them as soon as possible if you wish to play this spring.

For individual players wishing to play single-gender Ultimate, DiscNW is running complementary club leagues, with a High School Boys' Spring Pod/Hat League in the spring and a girls' club league in the fall.

Looking for a lower-commitment opportunity to try out single-gender Ultimate for a day?

DiscNW is hosting one more single-gender high school tournament this spring:

DiscNW prefers electronic copies of the paperwork, emailed to . If you need to submit hard copies, please bring them to the coaches' meeting or mail to DiscNW at the address in the upper right corner of the website.

  1. The coach must submit a signed DiscNW Youth Participation Agreement and Release and Concussion Information Sheet for each player on the roster. Coaches should keep their own hard copy of the first page of this packet and bring it to all games and practices, since it contains a medical authorization which allows the coach to seek medical care for a player if the parent cannot be reached. Please alphabetize the player waivers by last name before submitting them.
  2. All coaches are required to sign a Coaching Code of Conduct form, which outlines coaches' responsibilities while participating in DiscNW events, and which signifies that they have been educated as to the nature and risk of concussions and head injuries.
  3. Each team must submit a team roster. You may use the DiscNW Youth Team Roster, or the roster may be in your own format, but it must include the name of the event, the year of the event, the school and team names, and the full names, grades, and genders of all players. Please alphabetize the player names by last name on the form.
