General Tournament Info
What: Spring Reign is the world's largest youth ultimate tournament! It's a two-day affair, with games starting at 9:00am each day and running into the afternoon/evening. Teams can expect to play 3-4 games each day.
When: Saturday & Sunday, April 25th and 26th
It's a long day out there! We recommend players pack a lunch and other personal field snacks that they enjoy. There will be some food available at the fields during the day, a limited selection of sandwiches for purchase, and there may be a food truck. But having food on the sidelines between games is necessary as many games will be back-to-back. We will be organizing some of the parents to provide sideline snacks and drinks. DiscNW will provide pizza dinner at the fields after the games late Saturday afternoon.
- Reversible Hamilton Ultimate jerseys
- Light rain coat
- Water bottle
- Food and snacks
- Change of dry clothes for the car ride home
At Spring Reign there is a tradition of presenting the opposing team with a gift(s) after each game. We will be organizing some parents to get some gifts for their team to present. Ideas range from gag type gifts from Archie Mcphee, to discs and jerseys, to food snacks (no nuts), to... well you get the idea. Ask your kids for their thoughts.
Should I Stay or Should I Go?
Burlington is approximately 75 minutes north of Seattle. Most folks drive there and back each day. Some families have reserved hotel rooms in Mt. Vernon and Burlington for the evening. These may be mostly booked by now, but give it a shot.
Tournament Swag Available
Remember to send your player with a few extra bucks if you can. Tournament discs and clothing will be for sale, provided by 5 Ultimate. I personally never leave a tournament without at least buying a disc.
Rainmakers Game Saturday Night
Come watch our B Team coach Matt Neeley along with our local pro ultimate team the Seattle Rainmakers host the Vancouver Nighthawks on Saturday night at Mt. Vernon High School. Whether you're heading back to Seattle or staying the night in Burlington, this will be a great way to end a long day of playing ultimate. If you haven't seen an MLU game yet, it's pretty fun to watch.
If you and/or your player needs a ride to Burlington, OR if you are driving and have room in your vehicle, please fill out the form below and we will see if we can find a match.
We have two teams going to Spring Reign, and 65 kids signed up. We stated previously that we were only taking 28 kids per team, but we're softies and find it hard to say no to your children. So everyone is going! Yes, we're going to have some big teams. But we have a lot of games over the weekend, and we'll figure out a way to make it work. It's going to be fun!
All the 8th graders are on the A Team, all 6th Graders on the B Team, and we'll split the 7th graders between the teams. I've spoken with a few of the 7th graders to get a feel for what teams they'd be comfortable playing on. But our decisions are based on a couple factors: keeping the older and younger kids in their grade cohort, and getting the 7th graders on a team where they are comfortable (i.e. with a few friends) and where they'll be successful. If your child has a strong preference to be on the other team, I'm happy to consider the request. But switches will only be granted if there is a player on the other team who also wants to switch, and if the coaches feel comfortable with the change.
