2012 Registered Teams
1. Bothell High School
Check out the League Map to see all registered and prospective teams.
Individuals can participate in the Washington League, but what’s even more fun is having a team to train and race with. Whether you are a student or coach, the League wants to do everything we can to help you form a team at your local high school or in your area.
If you’d like to start or join a team:
- Check out the League Map to see if a team already exists at your school or in your area. Here you can also see prospective teams and contact information.
- If you don’t see a team in your area and are interested in forming one, please send us an e-mail so we can help you out.
The league can assist in many ways, including helping:
- Athletes find coaches
- Coaches form teams
- Teams become recognized by their schools
- Teams find additional volunteers
Below is some detailed information about teams. We encourage all athletes to recruit some fellow students and have some fun trying out the Division II competition.
All teams must register with the League. Doing so provides insurance coverage for team members and provides support for League programs. If you have a new team and want to register with the League, the Team Director/Head Coach should contact the League Director. If you are a returning team/coach, simply visit the Pit Zone.
The price for registering a team varies depending on the division of the team and if the Team Director meets certain licensing requirements (compliant or non-compliant). Complaint teams receive a $125 registration discount. To determine if your team is compliant, click here.
Division II Teams (11 or less members):
Division I Teams (12 or more members)
For 2012 all teams in the Washington League will be Division II Teams unless 6 or more teams with 12+ riders register.
If you have questions about team registration, please contact the League Director.
Types of Teams
There are 3 types of teams.
- School-Based Teams: Comprised of full-time students from the same high-school, public or private. School-based teams can be “official” or “unofficial”.
- Composite Teams: Comprised of full-time students from more than one high-school within the same district or other geographic proximity. Home-school students may also join Composite Teams. Composite Team Limitations: Composite Teams are intended to be temporary solutions toward building school-based teams. Riders may only score for a composite team for a maximum of 2 years. In addition, if a composite team has 5 or more students from the same school, those students will be scored separately from the rest of the composite team unless a petition to do otherwise is approved.
- County-Based Home-School Teams: Home-schoolers may organize teams of students (home-schoolers only) who live within the same County or other geographic proximity.
Don’t have a team to race with? That’s ok! Students can compete as an independent racer in the League Series. While they will not be eligible for the Team Overall title, they are eligible for the Individual Race and Overall titles. Independent racers need not register a team, and should only register for the series, being sure to denote that they are racing as an “Independent” where appropriate on registration forms. All other rules apply.
Washington League teams are divided into Division I and Division II teams. Larger teams are designated Division I, with Division II teams being made up of smaller teams. Once a team reaches 12 members it changes to Division I.
While Division I and Division II teams do race separately, they are treated equally by the League in all aspects. The separation is only intended to provide a fair race environment.
Teams are awarded points after every League race which count toward the teams’ standings at that individual race and for the overall series. Both girls and boys points count toward that team’s overall score. However, teams need not have boys’ and girls’points to score for a race. Due to the difference in team size between divisions, Division I teams and Division II teams are scored differently.
For Division I, scoring is based on the top 8 point earners, with a maximum of 6 of those point earners being the same gender.
For Division II, scoring is based on the top 4 point earners, with a maximum of 3 of those point earners being the same gender.
