UKU is holding the 2016 AGM and Develpment Conference in Bristol on the 10th September.
The AGM is open to anyone. It is a great opportunity to find out about how UK Ultimate works, and find out how the organisation is doing.
As we've done for the last 2 years, the AGM will be followed by a broader development discussion. We have two main themes planned for this year's discussion.
1. Local development by clubs: sharing success stories and common difficulties
2. Input to UK Ultimate 4-year (and beyond) plans 2017-2020.
There will also be a coaching-session with a view to those involved in coaching to have an opportunity to share experiences, good practice and resources - with a view to gauging and building interest in a stand-alone coaching conference in the future.
9:00 - Arrival, register, tea/coffee
9:30 - UKU AGM
10:30 - Club-led coaching and development in the local area
12:30 - Lunch
13:30 - Discussion and input into UK Ultimate long term plans: "Worlds is done. What next?!"
15:30 - Coaching discussion / Other matters arising
Entry is free and drinks and light refreshemtns will be provided

UK Ultimate thanks Hyperion Insurance Group as team sponsor of the GB Men at the World Ultimate and Guts Championships in London. The partnership brought much-needed financial support to the team ahead of the largest WUGC to date.
The sponsorship enabled the GB Men’s squad to make use of first-class pitches for training, a squad physio for all tournaments and training, strength and conditioning coaching and nutritional supplements, as well as subsidising a number of player’s travel requirements. The sponsorship also supported the provision of branded kit and training gear, which the players were wearing throughout the tournament.
Thanks to everyone who attended for a great weekend at the aptly-named Nottingham WindFarm 2016. The best we can say about the weather is that the wind did a good job of drying all the standing water after the deluge on Saturday morning - it really seems like it's just one of those years for Tour weather!
A primary school near Hereford would like to include Ultimate in PE and as an after school club but would like some help to get started.
Airbadgers 1 U20
Last weekend, a record number of young teams descended on Birmingham to compete in UK Ultimate's largest ever Schools Outdoor Championships and the Junior (U20) Outdoor Nationals.
Huge congratulations to AirBadgers (St Peter's, Exeter) for a thoroughly dominant performance across all divisions - they continue to set the standard both on the pitch and also in the complex logistics of bringing 10 teams all the way up from the far south west.
