New Information:

1. SPRING ULTIMATE FRISBEE (GRADES 6-7-8, CO-ED) – All Hazel Wolf middle schoolers are invited to play Ultimate frisbee! If you are new to Ultimate, click here to learn more about the sport. Also, click here to read about the Sprit of the Game.

In the spring, Ultimate is not a school district sport, but the Hazel Wolf community has a strong tradition of playing Ultimate – both through DiscNW’s organized leagues and tournaments, and less formally after school or on weekends.

This spring there is a small group of parent volunteers coordinating some recreational and competitive activities, as follows:

RECREATIONAL – Kent Koth will host pick-up Ultimate at Maple Leaf park on Saturdays starting March 17. All are welcome, but Kent needs contact information to coordinate. Please contact Kent if interested / for more information: 206-617-2882; kentkoth@gmail.com. There may also be some after-school pick-up opportunities on Mondays and Wednesdays at Pinehurst Park – we have the field reserved and are looking for a parent/guardian who can commit to hosting that activity! Please contact Kent if you can help: 206-617-2882; kentkoth@gmail.com.

COMPETITIVE – Kevin Rack will coach a limited-roster, competitive team in DiscNW’s Spring League (starting March 10), and if invited to participate, Spring Reign tournament (April 28-29).

2. 3-5 Ultimate Frisbee: This year 3-5 Ultimate Frisbee will be intramural style (an in-house league) with one day of practice (Tues) and of one of games (Thurs) each week after school (teams to be determined). The season is March 13 – May 3. Have questions? Contact one of our volunteer coaches.

4. NEW Hazel Wolf parent support group: Does Your Child Have an IEP, 504, or Behavioral or Learning Challenges? Are you trying to navigate the school system and find the right resources? Do you feel like you’re the only one? Well, you’re not. Come to our first Hazel Wolf parent-run, parent-support meeting on Monday, March 12th at 7:00 pm in the Hazel Wolf library to learn and share your own resources, tips, and tricks. Plan to bring your knowledge and questions but to leave your judgments at home. There will be a volunteer parent facilitator to help keep things on track and on topic. Please RSVP to elliskatherinem@gmail.com. Also, if you’re interested but can’t make it, let us know that too. Sadly, childcare will NOT be provided. Hope to see you there!
