"Serve as a regional resource, promoting growth in the sport of ultimate and instilling the spirit of sportsmanship at all levels of play"
It is intrinsic to DiscNW's mission to promote and teach mutual respect and fair play, demonstrate the value of team sports for health and social benefits, and perform outreach in the community. The notion of sportsmanship or the "Spirit of the Game" has guided the agency and defines the organizational culture. Our goal is to be the leading provider of recreational ultimate Frisbee events in the Northwest.
DiscNW is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Seattle. We run ultimate leagues, tournaments, camps, and clinics throughout the year. Our focus is on coed recreational play and youth ultimate. We also support elite teams at all levels and divisions, and we also organize non-coed playing opportunities. DiscNW serves as a web-based resource for individuals seeking opportunities to play ultimate at pickup games and in organized leagues, tournaments, camps, and clinics. We support local teams (adult, collegiate, and youth) with technical support and limited financial assistance. We communicate with and link together other regional ultimate associations. The organization is led by a small staff and is supported by the work of many volunteers.
