Westside Ultimate is pleased to announce that the Spring Boys/Bx Club Season is now open for registration. This Boys/Bx Spring season is Club/Free Agent, meaning that is low key and non-geographical. This team will be for players that identify as male or non-binary wishing to play on a male identifying team. In addition, Westside is only putting together a JV Team, with Freshmen and Sophomore players. Please see all the details below, and let us know if you have any questions! Reach us at [email protected].
2022 Westside Boys/Bx Club Season
Duration: 3/18/22 – 5/13/22
Adults: Head Coach Gene Hsu and Asst. Coach Mick Vaught, and Team Admin Fiona Preedy
Practices: Start on Tuesday, March 9th, and will be once a week (not always on a Tuesday). Practices will move day and times, no earlier than 4pm and ending no later than 8:30pm. The schedule reflects what fields were made available to us and when. We will be working on carpools to get players to the fields and games.
Games: Games will be on the weekend, and scheduled by DiscNW. Games can be all over the city, so anyone available to drive will be appreciated. Tools for carpools and organizing will be provided
Competition: This team will register as a JV team with DiscNW. While there is a chance of a game against a varsity team, there will be 4 other JV teams playing.
Experience and Criteria: No experience in Ultimate is required to join this team. We are inviting all 9th and 10th grade boys, from West Seattle, to join the team.
Gear: All players should be outfitted with cleats, and wear comfortable work out wear for practices, bringing a white and a dark shirt for scrimmages (no gray please!). We have some t-shirts for purchase, and some uniforms to borrow, we will be sure to get players set up. Don’t forget your water bottle!
Fees: Players must register with DiscNW. There is a confidential sliding scale for the DiscNW fees, and then there will be waivers to sign. Westside Ultimate does not charge for this Boys/Bx season, but we would be happy to receive donations!
TO REGISTER: Returning players and families – please log into your DiscNW account, and visit the Spring HS Boys/Bx Club Team page, (no password) to register, pay, and fill out waivers. New players, if you don’t have a DiscNW account, please have your adult (if you are under 18) set up an account, and add you as a family member. Then you can register at the link above. If you have any problems, email [email protected].
Safety: For Spring 2022, all participants must be fully vaccinated, players and coaches, and proof of vaccination will be requested.. For the foreseeable future, all players will wear a mask when practicing, playing, or on the sidelines. Removing a mask for a water break or fresh air is allowed, but should be done safely at a distance. Any spectators for games or practices should watch well away from the teams and wear masks if approaching players or coaches.
Communications: We send a weekly newsletter to active players and their parents, and anyone else that opts in. We offer a GroupMe text group for parents and one (or more) for the players. We have a website – westsideultimate.org and a Facebook page. Our main email is [email protected], and each coach/admin will let you know if they will offer another way to contact them.
