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 Bobby Morris, Lower Woodland Park, Magnuson, and Washington Park.  The DiscNW winter fields permit is here.

Teams are encourage 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 PT to go around.

 

Registration

Online registration opens on Friday, November 20th. The team fee is $794.60 (including sales tax). 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 Friday, December 11th. 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.
