Summer team league is for new or established coed teams and has something for various skill levels. The league has four divisions, and teams are placed in each division based on their experience to ensure close competition.

 


Headlines

Teams should postpone play for 30 minutes in the event of a lightning strike.  All participants should seek shelter in cars or a building with plumbing.  Play may resume 30 minutes after the last visible lightning strike.

Team Captains will be contacted with additional information.

Looking for a team?

In general the DiscNW bulletin boards are a good place to find a team.  Some teams post there when looking for players.  Free agents also post there when trying to get on a team.  There is a very helpful post on the DiscNW bulletin board about getting on a team:  http://www.discnw.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=1157 

Additionally, there are some hat events this Summer that are open to registration by individuals:

  • Time cap: @ 20 minutes left in game, add 2 to the highest score and play out.  Win by 1.  @ 10 minutes left in game, finish the point.  Game is over unless it is tied (1 more point is played to determine the winner if tied).
  • 2 timeouts per half; mirror half.
  • One player - one roster! A player can only be listed on one team's roster. This isn't Winter League.

Don't Be a No-Show

If a team needs to cancel or postpone a game they must notify the League Coordinators and the opposing team's Captains at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled start of the game. Any team that fails to give proper notification of cancellation two times during the season will be denied participation in the playoffs, and given last priority in future seasons.

Please start and end your game on time!!
