The Three Pillars of our Program
BE KIND - show respect and compassion to teammates, to coaches, to other competitors and to yourself.
PLAY HARD - we are here to play Ultimate and compete. We work hard to become better teammates and competitors. Giving 100% helps make yourself and your teammates better.
MAKE IT FUN - enjoy your teammates, help build new friendships, bring energy to the team.
As coaches, we work hard to follow these pillars as well. We work to bring a fun energetic hard working atmosphere to the program.
SPRING 2020 REGISTRATION
Registration is now open!. Please sign up as soon as you can so we can start planning our teams.
DEADLINE: Friday February 14
Spring 2020 Information
TRYOUTS will be held on Monday February 24, Tuesday February 25, and Thursday February 27 from 4-5:30pm on the Eagle Staff field for all grades. Players should come to as many of the three dates as possible; note conflicts on the registration form
PRACTICES will be 2x/week starting the week of March 2. Days and location are TBD.
GAMES will be played on Saturdays March 7 through mid-May, locations and times TBD.
PLAYER DUES: Spring Ultimate is NOT an official SPS sport. There will be a basic player fee of $50 to cover league fees and equipment (additional donations appreciated; note that jerseys, discs, tournaments will be extra). Scholarships are available.
DISCNW REGISTRATION: Parents/guardians of players who are assigned to a Ravens team after spring tryouts must create an account at discnw.org. Once you create an account for yourself, you can add your child to the profile. This is necessary as all paperwork for waivers and permission to play takes place online through the DiscNW site.
NOTE: Tryout sign-up does not guarantee that your child will be accepted into the program or placed on a team. Factors include roster limitations, practice/game scheduling conflicts, and skill level. Also, while Ultimate is a "non-contact" sport, contact happens, and issues regarding player safety may also be considered.
We will be using the same jerseys that were used last year. If you need to purchase a new Ravens Ultimate jersey for this season, the cost will be $30 (cash or check payable to 'RAVENS ULTIMATE'). We will be handing out the jerseys at practice once you have paid. Your coach will remind you. See the ELECTRO JERSEY on this page for sizing.

As coaches, we work hard to follow the Three Pillars noted above as well. We work to bring a fun energetic hard working atmosphere to the program. We practice positive reinforcement.
We know that all can have lapses from time to time. Our steps for reinforcing our Pillars are:
- We will have an open discussion with the player after a practice to address our concerns
- If we don't see improvement, we'll reach out to the player's parents to continue the conversation.
- If the player is still unable to contribute to the team and meet the expectations as expressed in our Pillars, the player will be told to not return to the team.
Any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
