General YCC Information & Player Eligibility

The 2010 Ultimate Players Association (UPA) Youth Club Championships (YCC) will be in Blaine, Minnesota on August 14 and 15. For more information on the event, please click here.

In 2010, 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 (i.e., played at least two games) in one of the following two leagues:

  • The fall 2009 DiscNW Youth Club Draft Hat League
  • The spring/summer 2010 DiscNW Youth Club Draft Hat League

Candidates must have completed one of grades 9-12 in 2010 (players who have just completed their 8th grade year or their first year of college will not be considered for the Seattle YCC teams).  Candidates must be under age 19 on May 31, 2010.  For more information on UPA YCC team and player requirements, including players' location of residence, please click here.

Players who are selected for the DiscNW YCC teams will be required to pay all tournament-related fees by the end of June.  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 only a limited number of scholarships available.

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