2016 will be the fifth year of Winter Women's League.  This is a multi-week draft league for women 18 and older of ALL SKILL LEVELS to play single-gender ultimate in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.

Each week's games are played on Friday nights under the lights on turf - rain or shine. We will be hosting a women's clinic for beginner and intermediate players on Fri Jan 8.

Registration opens Dec 1 and has filled up every year. Once you register, please pay the league fee to fully confirm your spot. The $59.37 fee covers the field cost, a jersey, league supplies, and a celebration at the end of the season.

If you want to sign-up with a buddy, make sure that you both list each other in your registration form. Only buddies who list each other are guaranteed to be drafted onto the same team. 


Headlines

UPDATE 12/8: All the spots in the league are now filled and the wait-list has opened. If you are interested in playing in the league, even as a sub, please register for the wait-list, which will also serve as the sub-list for the league.


Information

League Format

Prior to the league starting, there is a clinic open to any women 18+ on Friday, Jan 8. The clinic is geared towards beginner and intermediate players and is taught by more experienced women from the league. Please see the Clinic page for more information.

The league runs for 8 weeks. The 16 teams will be grouped into 2 pools of 8, so the first 7 weeks' games are all pool play, with a round robin within each pool. The last week will be a cross-over game with the team that finished in the same place in the other pool and will determine the final placement.
