We are excited to share the long-awaited good news that DiscNW-sanctioned High School Ultimate is back!!
DiscNW just announced two upcoming seasons, a spring practice season and a summer league. All current HS students (current grades 9-12) are eligible, as are rising HS students (current grade 8).
Register for the Summer Season
Here are the current details on the upcoming season:
The summer season will run from the week of June 21 through the week of August 9, 2021. Practices will be held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. on the Bainbridge High School grass fields (North Field #2 & #3), starting the week of June 21. Games will be held once a week starting the week of June 28, at various fields throughout Seattle, against other high school teams in the DiscNW league. The schedule for games will become available from DiscNW on June 14.
The summer season will be a single-gender format. Players will register for either the girls or boys team, as appropriate (view DiscNW’s gender inclusion policy) Each team will compete separately, i.e., in the Disc NW HS girls or boys division. Note that this is a different format from our spring “mixed” practice season, in which all genders played together on the same team. For families with multiple players, please be aware that the various Bainbridge teams’ games may not be at the same location in Seattle on a given day.
There are 9 coaches for the summer season: Cath O’Neill, Dave Babcock, Lisa Timmins, Ben Klasky, Nat Lange, Kathryn Feeney, Daisy Amelang, Sawyer Blair, and Conor Babcock O’Neill. There may be additional coaches as well. We are very excited that the summer timing means that several of our wonderful BHS alumni who are now playing college ultimate can return as coaches!
Cath O’Neill is the Acting Head Coach for the summer seasons. Please direct questions to her at [email protected].
Please share this information with anyone you think may be interested. DiscNW has expanded eligibility for the summer season to include all current HS students (current grades 9-12 in the 2020-21 school year) and all rising HS students (current grade 8 in the 2020-21 school year). Please help us spread the word!
All practices and games will need to comply with DiscNW’s COVID safety protocols. These requirements are evolving in line with current health guidance, and we will keep players/families informed, as DiscNW adjusts (hopefully in the direction of easing restrictions). As of now, folks should be aware that these rules include: that players wear masks at all times; that social distancing and other sanitizing practices be observed during practices and games; that teams have an on-site team COVID manager who will take attendance, oversee compliance with risk mitigation measures, and coordinate with DiscNW (e.g., should contact tracing become necessary). Additionally, players/families should be aware that they’ll have to submit a health attestation to DiscNW before EACH practice or game in order to be eligible to play.
All coaches have been fully vaccinated.
We’re looking forward to some summer ultimate!!
