DiscNW Field Day to benefit youth ultimate this Saturday

This Saturday DiscNW will host their annual Field Day — a fun hat tournament in the morning combined with a picnic lunch and carnival/skills games in the afternoon.  The event is a fundraiser for the youth ultimate activities supported by DiscNW.

I attended last year and was amazed at all the ultimate jerseys, shorts, and other gear that was handed out as prizes!  I also enjoyed the format of the morning games in the low-key division: one point was played by the kids on a team; the next by the adults.

The event will take place from 9am to 3:30pm Saturday (June 14, 2014) at Magnuson Park Sports Meadow.  Players should arrive at 8:30am to warm up and sign in.  Pre-register as a individual, small group, or team.   The registration fee is $35/player, or $100/family of 4 or more.  More details.

Everyone is encouraged to participate — from seasoned veterans to beginners, from 8-year-olds to 108-year-olds.  Bring your friends and families to introduce them to the awesome sport of ultimate.  In the morning games there will be a “Friends and Family” division, designed for elementary and middle school players and their parents, coaches, and other adult friends.

Field Day is a fundraising event to support the Youth Development Fund (YDF) and the Youth Club Championship Scholarship Fund (YCCSF).   These funds allow us to promote youth ultimate to new groups, support the participation of underserved populations, and provide financial aid for players both playing in local events and traveling to represent Seattle at the USA Ultimate Youth Club Championships in August.

Youth summer league welcomes incoming 3rd-6th graders

Do you want to get a good introduction to ultimate before you start playing as a 3rd grader?   Would you like to keep your skills sharp as you prepare to compete in middle school?

If so, then you should sign up for the 2nd annual summer youth league in Seattle!  It’s happening on the 5 Wednesday evenings in July and they had awesome t-shirt designs last year! The format of each 1.5-hour evening is 30 minutes of instruction/practice and then two 25-minute 5-on-5 co-ed games.

Registration is due on June 14.  As of early June, they are about half full.
