Winter League offers a chance for established teams to get together and play during the colder months. The league provides an opportunity for teams to keep exercising in winter and to tune-up their games for spring.


Headlines

Registration will open December 1st, 2017.

Contact winter@discnw.org for more details.


Information

Winter league is a fairly casual opportunity for teams to get out and shake the cobwebs off their long hucks before the regular season starts. There are no standings or playoffs (because we don't keep score at Winter League games), but there are lots of opportunities to improve your skills in the winter weather.

All games will be played on synthetic turf field in Seattle on Saturdays at Jefferson, Lower Woodland Park, Magnuson, Delridge, Bobby Morris, and Washington Park. 

Teams are encouraged to have big rosters in the winter to make sure that there are enough players at all games. Since we don't keep score there will be plenty of playing time to go around.

 

Registration

Online registration opens on December 1st The team fee is $859.87 (including sales tax) and represents an increase in Seattle fields costs that went into effect in 2017 and increased sales tax costs over last year's registration. Payment may be made online or via check payable to DiscNW, Attn: Winter League, PO Box 85112, Seattle, WA 98145.  If paying by check, please list your team name on the memo line.

The registration deadline is December 20th. Make sure to register and pay before the deadline in order to secure your spot in the league. The earlier timeline will allow us to complete schedules before the holidays.
