    WUDi has partnered with DiscNY to be a USAU affiliate organization for 2017!

    What does this mean for you??

    This means that instead of paying for a full annual membership, and instead of paying a one-time event fee for every league you play in, you can pay one AFFILIATE MEMBERSHIP fee right now, and you will be covered for all WUDi AND DiscNY events in 2017! The cost is only $16.50 and will cover you for Summer League, Indoor League, and any WUDi hat tournaments or DiscNY events you choose to play in this year. Simply select the "Affiliate 1 Year" option when renewing your membership on the USAU website. WUDi will no longer be collecting one-time event fees.

    TO BE A CURRENT USAU member this means you have the following:

  4. How do I get on a WSL team?

    Anyone interested in participating in WSL must register for at least one of the three leagues. Once you are registered, you will be drafted onto a team and then contacted by your captain.

  5. How do I register for WSL?

    WSL registration is all done online. You will be required to pay your registration fee, using PayPal, during the registration process. Registration will not be complete until payment is received. The information collected during the registration process is used by captains when teams are drafted.

    Earlybird registration for WSL will open at 8:00 PM, Sunday, April 2nd

    Standard registration for WSL will open at 8:00 PM, Tuesday, April 4th.  (Make sure you have your USAU ID handy.)

    Registration for WSL will close at 8:00 PM, Friday, May 12th

  8. What is Earlybird Status?

    Having Earlybird Status gives you an early shot at registering for WSL. Read more.

  9. How do I know which league is right for me?

    Descriptions of the leagues (Coed Draft, open Draft and Rec) can be found on the Summer League main page. It's all a matter of preference.

  10. Do I have to be a certain age to participate in WSL?

    Yes.

    Under 18: If you are under 18 years of age, you are required to have a parent or guardian sign your USAU waiver.  Login to the USAU site to take care of this. https://members.usaultimate.org/members/login.php

    Under 16: If you are under 16 years of age, you must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at WSL games and your participation must be approved by the League Coordinators. Approval will depend on your experience and your body size, as WUDi's main concern about registrants under the age of 16 is safety. Additionally, registrants under the age of 16 may be asked to play only every other week. Occasional participation will allow younger registrants to play in real games, as well as give the other registrants time to play games without the young players on the field.

    Coed Draft: New in 2017, the Coed Draft league will now be 18+ only.  Players under 18 years old will be able to play in either Open Draft or Rec League.

  11. How do I get to WSL?

    It is easiest to get to Purchase College by driving, but there is a public transportation alternative listed on the Ride Board.

WSL Co-Ed Draft League vs. Open Draft League (Mon & Wed)

  1. What is the Open Draft League all about?

    The Open Draft league will operate in much the same manner as WSL's traditional Coed Draft League. Registering players will be asked to provide detailed information about their playing history and skill levels, and captains will participate in a team draft at the close of registration. Ideally the league will consist of six teams who will play each other on a rotating basis, with each team playing every Monday and Wednesday night.

    Although men and women may register for the Open Draft league, like USAU's Open division, the league will not have any gender ratio requirements. Additionally, though the league is open to players of all skill levels, like the traditional WSL Coed Draft League, we expect the participating players to have at least a year or two of competitive experience. We encourage new players or those who are interested in developing their skills to register for WSL's Rec League.

  2. Can I play both Coed Draft and Open Draft during WSL this summer?

    No, all Draft League games are at the same time on the same days.  You may register for only one of the two A Leagues. If you choose either Coed or Open you are still welcome to sign up for B League on Thursday nights.

  3. Will all of the higher-skilled men want to play in the Open Draft League, thereby weakening the quality of play in the Coed Draft League?

    There's no reason to believe this. Last year's unscientific on-line poll about an "all male league" indicated balanced interest among men of all skill levels between playing in an all male league and a co-ed league. Plenty of experienced and skilled club players will want to play in the co-ed division.
