|Registration for our Girls/Gx Team now open|
|Welcome to Westside Ultimate’s Girls/Gx High School Team! We are so excited to continue our Girls/Gx team for just the second year. Spring season is a single gendered league, with players that identify as female or non-binary wishing to play on a female identifying team, and that are in 9th-12th grade. Please see all the details below, and let us know if you have any questions! Reach us at [email protected]|
|Duration: 3/1/23 – 5/19/23|
Adults: Team Parents/Coaches Pat Lamphere and Chad Frampton, along with Coach Craig Chambers . Supporting them are Head Coach Gene Hsu and Team Admin Fiona Preedy
Practices: Start on Wednesday, March 1st, and will be on different days and times during the week, no earlier than 4pm and ending no later than 8:30pm. The schedule reflects what fields were made available to us and when. Fields are at Sealth, Delridge, and Hiawatha. We will be working on carpools to get players to the fields and games. A schedule link will be sent to players that have registered, and will be on the website – westsideultimate.org – soon.
Games: Games will be during the week, after school, and scheduled by the teams (not 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. Our team is young, with only a few varsity level players.
Experience and Criteria: No experience in Ultimate is required to join our Girls/Gx team. In fact, because our team is so young, this is the PERFECT time to join and grow your skills. This season is no-cut. We are welcoming all West Seattle HS and Chief Sealth HS players, and anyone in the attendance area for these two high schools that may be at a private school, charter school (if those schools don’t have their own team) or home schooled.
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 uniforms (in both women’s and unisex sizes) for purchase and some to borrow. We will make sure that all players have an appropriate Westside uniform kit. 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 also charges a season fee of $80, which primarily pays for the fields. Notice of that fee will be sent later. Because our priority is that any youth player in West Seattle should be able to play, we work with players and their families if the fee is a financial burden.
TO REGISTER: Returning players and families – please log into your DiscNW account, and visit the Spring HS Girls/Gx Registration page, to register, pay, and fill out waivers for Westside JV Girls/Gx. 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].
Communications: We use TeamSnap to message players and families, as well as email. TeamSnap also offers chat and messaging to individuals. 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.
Any questions? Email [email protected] and we’ll get you an answer from a coach, captain, or admin, just let us know!
