It’s summer — time for The Best Ultimate League in the country, DiscNW’s Master’s Hat League.  For men and women players over 30, this league continues to be a favorite among “veteran” and “newbies” alike. Mellow play and gender-friendly. Although we are not officially co-ed, we normally have a 5/2 ratio of men to women (which means, ladies, that you can play co-ed without the risk of playing savage all the time!)

Pod assignments and schedule will be posted to the site on Sunday June 2nd.

This league is a great way to connect with the vibrant masters ultimate community here in Seattle.

We are Fully booked for the season! The first paid 96 registratants get to play - and unpaid registra

Format:

In order to increase the variety and fun for a short league.  Team pods will be used.  In the past Chick Flick and the Spring Men's Hat League has used this model with success.

Rosters - This league will group players in to half-team pods.  Each pod will have about 7 players each. 

Games - Two pods will combine to form one team for a game.  For example, first week matchups might include Pods A & B against Pods C & D.  On the second week it might be Pods A & C against Pods E & F.

Buddies - As with the Men for All Seasons tournament,  friends are encouraged to register together for the league.  If you want to play together as a pod (up to 7 people), please name the pod's captain as your "Buddy" on the registration form.  Players without buddies or teams will be assigned to teams.  Groups that sign up as a pod with less than 7 players may be assigned additional players.  Up to 12 team pods will be accepted to the league.


Rules

We will be using the 11th Edition of the Rules of Ultimate for the league.

Any league specific rules will be posted prior to the start of the season.
