Announcing the third annual Winter Men's League!  The 3-week season will be at Jefferson Park on Wednesday evenings in late January.


This event is three weeks long, due to field availability we will begin one week earlier this year. Game dates are as follows:

The 2018 DiscNW winter fields permit is here.


Team assignments and league schedule are posted. Team name equates to your jersey color, so if you are on Team Red, bring a red jersey to play in. All players should always bring a white jersey as well. Please start and end your games on time.

  • We use the USA Ultimate 11th Edition of the Rules of Ultimate for all DiscNW leagues, with the following additions, changes, and clarifications.
  • Each team has two team time-outs per half. Time outs should not exceed 90 seconds.  Time outs are unaffected by caps.
  • Games are played to 17 points, with a margin of at least two goals or until a cap is reached. The point cap is 19. There is no soft cap. The hard time cap begins 1 hour and 45 minutes after scheduled game start time, unless otherwise noted.
  • Teams mirror at halftime - the second half begins with a reversal of the initial choices regarding the team to receive the pull and which end zone they defend.
  • The Contact Rule can be used by mutual agreement of the Captains. The default rule for this League is not to use the Contact Rule. For a definition of the contact rule, see the second bullet point under “Experimental Rules” here.
