Format.  The first 5 weeks of play will be a round robin format between all 6 teams.  All the teams will be reseeded according to their results and the last week will feature the finals (1 v 2), 3rd place game (3 v 4), and 5th place game (5 v 6).

2013 Team Captains. We are excited to announce the team captains for this season:

  • Calise Cardenas
  • Alyssa Kelly
  • Kathryn "Smalls" Lawson
  • Libby Whiting
  • Johanna Leader
  • Autumn Tocchi

Each of these women are experienced players who will be great resources for players looking to improve elements of their game during the Winter Women's League season, so don't hesitate to ask them questions!


All games will be played on synthetic turf field in Seattle on Friday evenings.


Games will be played according to the USA Ultimate 11th Edition Rules with the following changes and/or clarifications:

  • All games are played to 15, with a score-cap of 17. 
  • Each team has two time-outs per half.  Overtime (14-14) and time-caps will not affect the number of time-outs a team has remaining.
  • Half-time is 5 minutes unless both team captains want to shorten the break.
  • A hard time-cap will go into effect after 90 minutes of scheduled play.  When the hard-cap goes on, the game ends after the current point, unless the game is tied and then one more point is played.  Note that a point is considered to have started as soon as the prior point was scored.
