This league is open to middle school-based teams (grades 6-8), public or private. New this year, we are adding boys' and girls' divisions to this traditionally coed league. Teams may play all of their games in one division, or some games in each division.
In the coed division, there are 3-4 pools to accommodate different age, skill, and experience levels. The boys' and girls' divisions are targeted at A pool teams for this first year.
Games are on Saturdays on fields throughout the greater Seattle region.

*Teams who wish to play G/B games but cannot form a full team of girls or boys may, per the DiscNW Eligibility Rules, apply to form a consortium team with another school. Note that approved consortium status applies to both coed and G/B play. Thus, a team playing a combined coed and G/B schedule may pull up players from its school's lower pool teams in order to field a full roster for its girls' or boys' games.
**Girls' teams and boys' teams must each pay the stated fee.
***Teams from schools with a coed student body that are not already playing in one of the three base divisions (coed, combined, or G/B) must provide an option for both boys and girls. Teams from schools with a coed student body that are already playing in one of the three base divisions (coed, combined, or G/B) need not schedule à la carte game(s) for both boys & girls, but it is strongly encouraged.
