DiscNW is proud to announce the first annual Verns Hat League-inspired hat tournament: Vernament!

The Vernament is taking place at the Shoreline Center from 1:00pm-6:30pm on Saturday, June 18. There will be room to make 8 teams, so sign up soon! Cost is $20.

Who Should Register?

  • Verns teams looking to play more together (put your Verns team name in the "buddy" field when registering). If not enough of your team wants to play in this tourney, but there are still a number of people interested, put your team name in the "buddy" field and we'll be able to make hybrid teams where needed.
  • Individuals looking for a hat tourney in June that is geared toward teaching new and intermediate players the game (we'll need experienced players to do the teaching!).



Registration is extended until Saturday, June 11!


Buddy Policy. Tournament size and number of teams could potentially be limited by the number of women who sign up.  If a man is buddied with a woman in the registration process, then the man will be advanced through the lottery automatically and the pair will be put on the same team.  See the DiscNW Buddy Policy for hat events.

Waitlist Policy.  The DiscNW Wait List Policy states that DiscNW volunteers receive priority status on the waitlist.  Individuals who have volunteered for DiscNW in the past year will bypass the lottery.   Volunteer this year for DiscNW to improve your status in next year's Hat Leagues/Tournaments and other similar Waitlist limited events.  Additionally, experienced players who are willing to captain a team may receive priority status at the discretion of the League Coordinators.

No Dogs

Note to athletic field users, friends, and families: Dogs are not allowed at organized athletic fields, beaches, or children's play areas in Seattle, Shoreline, and Redmond parks. They are welcome on leash everywhere else in the park system, and there are other off-leash areas where they can romp without leashes.  Please leave Fluffy at home on game days.

No Alcohol

Note to athletic field users, friends, and families: Alcohol is not allowed at organized athletic fields, beaches, or children's play areas in Seattle, Shoreline, and Redmond parks.  Drinking beer is allowed at many fine taverns and restaurants across King County.  Please leave the sprits at home on game days.

In the past we've received at least one warning per season regarding dogs and beer on the fields by various parks departments.  If further infractions occur we risk losing access to the fields.  Please refrain from bringing dogs and alcohol to games.  Thanks!


The 11th Edition of the Rules of Ultimate will be used again for Verns.
