Event details: 

We are pleased to announce that UKU Junior Outdoor Nationals will return to The Pavilion, Moor Lane, Birmingham B6 7AA.  In 2017 all divisions are 1-day events taking place on Saturday 24th June (games approx. 10am-5pm)

UKU Schools National Championship Finals is played 5-a-side (reduced size pitches)

 

** The schedule and Info Pack are now available **

Schedule - https://goo.gl/RVu69g

Info Pack - https://goo.gl/TTQGcL

And both also available as pdf files below.

**

 

All events are Open divisions (i.e. no restrictions on gender) - there's nothing to prevent either an all-male or all-female team, or anywhere in between. A large percentage of teams will be mixed gender, so bring whatever mix of players you like!

If your team had previously made arrangements for a 2-day event and wishes to continue to play on Sunday please let us know.  We will monitor how many teams are interested in a 2nd day's play and then coordinate with those teams to put on the most appropriate/popular event (hat tournament, coaching clinic, etc).

 

We've had a very large number of new schools join us recently - which is great!. We are of course aware that it can be tricky to organise logistics for something like this, but we'd love to have as many of you there as possible, so do please get in touch on the email below with any questions at all and we'll do what we can to help you make it happen.

 

Entry is through the UKU Event Entry Form.

And don't miss the closing date - 27 May 2017.


 

JUNIOR NATIONALS

Player Eligibility: Born on or after 1st Jan 1998

Membership/Affiliation requirements:

Players playing for UKU-affiliated schools playing as school teams are not required to have membership.

All other players must have minimum Basic Membership of UK Ultimate.

Team sizes and planning:

Clubs must ensure that they have appropriate levels of adult supervision in place for the event.

Based on past experience please note that you should not enter a team unless you have at least 10 fit players able to travel.

We also strongly recommend that teams plan to have a non-playing adult travelling with the team.   There have been instances where small teams have had an injury, and a second player has had to accompany the injured player to hospital, leaving behind a team that is too small to continue.  This not only spoils the tournament for the team concerned, but also for their opposition who have travelled and paid to play games, only to find they have a walkover - not ideal for anyone.

Need a team?
If you are a player or a small group of players without enough for a full team, then it may be possible to arrange for you to join up with another team; everyone involved in Junior Ultimate wants you there. HOWEVER you must explain your situation by emailing admin[at]ukultimate.com and have UKU ratify which is the most appropriate team for you to join with. Where possible, players are linked up with players from a similar geographical area.

Multiple-teams:

Clubs/schools are welcome to enter more than one team, but in the event that the tournament becomes oversubscribed, clubs entering multiple additional teams may find lower ranked teams placed on a waiting list.

 


UKU SCHOOLS CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS

Player Eligibility: We expect to run 2 divisions.

For the Y11 Division, all players must be in Year 11 or lower.

For the Y8 Division, all players must be in Year 8 or lower.

 

Team Eligibility:

All teams must be strictly school teams.  In the future we expect all teams will have to qualify through local qualification events.  For the time being, all school teams that wish to enter will be considered eligible.

Given that we are still not at the stage of having numerous regional qualifiers, for now we WILL accept multiple entries from one school (only if there is room of course - priority always given to 1st teams). This should NOT be taken to mean that this will always be possible in the future, but for now we see no benefit in turning teams away.

Membership/Affiliation requirements:

Players do not need individual membership provided the school is UKU-affiliated. Please contact admin[at]ukultimate.com for more information on Schools Affiliation.

Team sizes and planning:

RULES: Please remember this is a 5-a-side competition played to the “UKU-Schools” adapted rules with smaller playing area, and relatively short games.  Exact game-lengths and tournament format will depend on the number of teams that enter.
For more information please look here: http://www.ukultimate.com/uku-schools

 


 

Price: 
£80
How to register: 

Through the UKU Event Entry Form.

UKU Beach Nationals 2017

Submitted by Si Hill on Tue, 11/04/2017 - 11:59am
Event date: 
16 Sep 2017 (All day) - 17 Sep 2017 (All day)
Event details: 

Beach Nationals will be held on Sandbanks beach on the 16th and 17th of September 2017 hosted by Bournemouth University and Sunburn Beach Tournament committee.

The INFO PACK and SCHEDULE can be found as PDFs at the bottom of this page.

The live schedule can be accessed here: https://goo.gl/aDpT7r

 

Beach Nationals 2017 is now open for registration.  These will be held on the 16th and 17th September on Sandbanks beach, the same location as last year's competition.  Please read on or look here for more information.

The planned format is a three division, 8-team tournament for Open, Women’s, and Mixed. However, if there are insufficient entries for a particular division then it may not go ahead, and another division expanded according to demand. This decision will be made once the closing date has passed. Please note that accommodation is not available for this tournament, so consider this in your planning when arranging a team. A list of nearby hotels and campsites will be sent to entrants. 

Entry is made by emailing sunburn.bournemouth@outlook.com with the following information:

- Team name

- Contact Name

- Contact Email and Phone

- Secondary Contact

- Additional relevant information (previous beach tournaments entered, finishing position, player details)

 

The deadline for submitting a team is Thursday 10th August. After this date, if over-subscribed, the entry rules will be applied to teams as outlined below. Selected teams will be required to make payment of £160, which will be detailed in their confirmation email.

 

ENTRY RULES

For tournaments that are over-subscribed at the closing date the following rules will apply, in order:

- Teams from clubs who have completed Club Affiliation to the UKU will have priority over those who have not

 - Teams not on the blacklist (for late dropouts at previous events) will get priority over those who are

 - Teams finishing in the top 1/3 of the same event in the previous year*

- Teams finishing in the top 1/3 of places in any 2017 beach tournament*

 

 Additional notes:

First teams will NOT get priority over second teams - it is so easy to simply change the name of a 'second team' to avoid such a rule, which would disadvantage those 'proper' clubs who have a real identity.

 If spaces remain after the closing date, teams will be awarded spaces based on the order of DATE (not exact time) that payment was sent. This will be assumed to be the date payment was received unless there is additional information (e.g. screenshot of transfer, postmark on stamp etc.)

If there remain too many teams - which cannot be separated by the above - for the remaining places, a lottery will be run for ONLY those inseparable teams, for those places.

 

 

*We're obviously not able to check that your roster is sufficiently related to the roster for that previous tournament under the same name - but we expect teams to apply some SotG to that.

UKU Nationals (EUCR-W) 2017

Submitted by Si Hill on Tue, 11/04/2017 - 10:33am
Event date: 
26 Aug 2017 (All day) - 28 Aug 2017 (All day)
Event details: 

Thanks to all teams who entered Nationals - registration is now closed.

***********************
We are pleased to now confirm the schedule and the Info Pack for UKU Nationals 2017.

As ever, the info pack contains a great deal of information about important things, like where to park and where you can or can't spectate from - do make sure to familiarise yourslef with everything you need to know.

 

Pitches 1 & 3 will be streamed live by Fanseat and the UKU Media Team. You can watch the games on their website.

With a fantastic 9 Mixed, 9 Women's, and 9 Open division games, the majority of teams will be filmed at some point - if you're one of the unlucky Open teams not getting a pool game streamed then you'd better make the top 6 to get on camera! And if you're following along at home and trying to catch up on the non-streamed games, the schedule link above will be updated with scores after each round of play.

 

Please note that the End of Year Celebration Dinner has been cancelled due to lack of ticket sales. We came close to our minimum number of sales, but didn't quite get there. We've emailed all the individuals that booked already and will be organising refunds today. Sorry it didn't work out this time!

How to register: 

Registration is now closed.

 

However, teams are required to register their team and submit their roster on ultimate central - http://euf.ultimatecentral.com/e/eucrw-owx-2017.

This is an EUCS requirement so teams need to make sure this is done before the tournament weekend.

Accomodation and transport: 

Camping is available at this tournament on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.
The cost is £5 per tent for the weekend if bought in advance here, £10 if bought on the day.
To book camping please head here to pay and receive your confirmation. Make sure that you print off your confirmation and bring it with you to exchange for your camping ticket on arrival.
Your camping ticket must be attached to your tent’s guy rope. Staff will be checking to ensure that no unauthorised tents are in the campsite.
Any belongings left in the campsite area are at the risk of the owner and both the venue and UKU take no responsibility for the loss or damage of any items.
The toilet facilities in the Pavilion will be open overnight for those that need them. Please ensure that you take a light with you so you can get to and from the building safely.

Camping rules (not rocket science - don't be that person):

  • No cooking of any description is allowed in the camping area
  • Ensure that you pitch your tent in the areas outlined
  • Walkways need to be kept clear so people can navigate their way safely through the campsite.
  • Please ensure that you put your rubbish in the bins provided
  • Be considerate of others who may be trying to sleep nearby

The venue is reasonably easy to find on your SatNav, but do make sure to look in the Info Pack to find the location of the car park and the overflow car park.

Through the UKU Entry Form

Cut off date for entries is Saturday 29th April, where we expect to have received payment as well as the entry form. We have a maximum limit of 48 slots, which we’d love to fill - we were a bit light last year...!

 

If we're oversubscribed at the closing date, the UKU will determine which teams earn a space according to their usual policies - below, in order of application :

 

- Teams ranked in the top 32 of the previous tournament
- Foreign teams believed likely by the UKU Competitions Committee to finish in the top 16
- Teams whose participation the UKU Competitions Committee believe will benefit the growth of
Ultimate – for example, but not limited to, local teams who may not yet be ready to travel to other
tournaments, or teams based in underrepresented geographical areas
- Teams unable to enter the previous event due to over-subscription or non-entry
- Remaining teams, in order of their finish at the previous tournament

 

Any team that drops out with less than a week to go will not get a refund, those who drop out the week after entry cut off will receive a 50% refund, so please make sure you’ve got your team committed. We want to have as many of you there as possible, but please make sure you’ve got the numbers so that we can get the schedule published as early as possible, hence the refund policy.

 

Accomodation and transport: 

Free on site camping at BCFC is available, from friday night with plenty of room.  Shower block and toilets will be available all day and throughout the night.

Cheltenham has lots of hotels and B&B's which can be found on the web. In terms of location, the nearest village is called Bishops Cleeve, where there are a few take aways - the chippy is pretty good and a good size tesco's with a Costa coffee inside. 

Please bring: 

Good weather, good spirit and the usual excellent attitude.

Appropriate clothing for all weathers - we can get it all over the weekend.

Also make sure all your belongings are tagged with your name on them - such as boots, water bottles etc - after this tour, what's not claimed will go to the charity shops!!
