General YCC Information & Player Eligibility

 The 2009 Ultimate Players Association (UPA) Youth Club Championships (YCC) will be in Blaine, Minnesota on August 8 and 9.  For more information on the event, please click here

In 2009, Seattle will be sending three teams to YCC: a mixed team, a girls' team, and an open team.  Each team will carry 17-21 players.  To be eligible for these teams, players must have participated in one of the following three leagues:

  • The 2008 DiscNW High School Co-Ed League
  • The 2008 DiscNW High School Single Gender League
  • The 2009 DiscNW High School Single Gender League

For more information on UPA YCC player and team requirements, please click here.

Players who are selected for the DiscNW YCC teams will be required to pay all tournament-related fees up front.  The fee covers plane tickets and other travel at the tournament, tournament lodging, coaches' stipends, uniforms, and field rentals.  The cost will be approximately $750-1,000 per player.  There will be a limited number of scholarships available.  To apply for a scholarship, please visit the Scholarship Policy page and submit your application by May 27.  Please note that scholarships for YCC will NOT be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis; rather, decisions will be based solely on financial need.

If you have any questions about YCC, please contact the General Manager Frank Nam and the Director of Youth Operations Wynne Scherf at .
