DATES and LOCATIONS:

There will be no game on the day before Spring Reign - Friday, April 27.
Players may register in one of three ways:
- As an individual. Individuals are assigned to a team and coach.
- As a pod (2-8 players). A pod is assigned to a team and a coach. All individuals in the pod must register. You will need a pod name when you register.
- As a full team (9 or more players). Full teams are required to provide their own adult coach, who will be asked to meet certain league requirements.* In some cases, the League Coordinator may add a pod or individual players to a full team, but this will be avoided whenever possible. All individuals on the team must register. You will need a team name when you register.
*Coaches must be at least 21 years of age. Coaches must sign the DiscNW Coaching Code of Conduct, will be subject to a DiscNW background check, and must be present at all games (or provide a substitute who also meets DiscNW standards).
For the enjoyment of all teams, we want to make sure teams are relatively equal in skill. Thus, the following "ringer rules" are in effect:
- Teams or pods of 5 or more boys registering together must contain 4 or fewer ringers.
- A ringer is a player who meets any of the following characteristics:
- Has played in the USA Ultimate Youth Club Championships in a U19 division.
- Has played 2 or more seasons as a starter on a varsity high school Ultimate team.
When registration is open, a "Register Now" link will appear at the bottom of this section. The registration deadline is Friday, March 16. The payment deadline has been extended to Sunday, March 18.
- The league fee for individuals and pods is $34 per player.
- The league fee for teams is $22 per player. Teams must pay by check since the website is set to collect the higher individual/pod fee. Please make your check payable to DiscNW at PO Box 85112, Seattle, WA 98145.
- Financial aid is available.
All players must submit a DiscNW Participation Agreement and Release.
Payment and paperwork must be submitted before a participant will be permitted to play. The payment deadline is Sunday, March 18.
If you are signing up as a part of a pod or team, remember to have your pod/team name ready when you click on "Register Now."
