Cascadia Dragons Ultimate (frisbee) starts soon!

Does your 3rd, 4th or 5th grader want to play on a Cascadia Dragons ultimate frisbee team? Could you help coach a team? Then fill out this survey today! Roster spots for players are limited and priority is determined by the date you sign up on the survey. Sign up your player as soon as possible before the teams fill up!!

Cascadia parents are organizing teams to play in the 2019 DiscNW Spring Elementary Mixed (co-ed) league. We will kick off our 2019 season with a throwing day for all interested players on Friday, March 1st, from 3pm-4:30pm at Maple Leaf Reservoir Park. For your player to be placed on the appropriate level team, it is important that they attend this initial throwing day. The coaches will also have a brief parent meeting from 4:15pm-4:30pm that same day. Don’t miss this!!

After the initial throwing day, practices for all teams will be once a week on Thursdays from 3pm-4:30pm at Maple Leaf Reservoir Park. Parent volunteers and players will walk together to the park each Thursday after school. Games will be on Saturdays starting March 9th. The season extends through mid May with league playoffs during the weekends of May 4th and May 11th.

To participate, players must be in 3rd, 4th or 5th grade and have a DiscNW account with all relevant waivers signed. Girls and boys are welcome as we need roughly equal numbers for each co-ed team.

Don’t worry if your child has never played sports or ultimate. Ultimate is a fun sport to learn as a new player. Ultimate focuses on Spirit of the Game. Coaches teach players about spirit of the game and after each game, coaches and players discuss the game and assign a “spirit” or good sportsmanship score to the opposing team. In ultimate, players call their own fouls and learn valuable conflict resolution skills.

We anticipate the cost per student (including t-shirt, league sign up and equipment costs) to be approximately $60, but we will provide precise cost information when teams have been set. Scholarships are available, so please don’t hesitate to request one from Sarah Fuelling (sarahfu@comcast.net). If you would like to coach or help coach, please contact Geoff Coco (cocoboxx@gmail.com) or Christa June (christasana@gmail.com). For general questions or interest in volunteering, email Sarah Fuelling (sarahfu@comcast.net).

Cascadia Ultimate is parent-organized and not an official school sport. Please do not direct questions to the school. They will greatly appreciate it!!
