UKU Junior (U20) Outdoor Nationals and Schools National Championships 2016-17

Submitted by Si Hill on Tue, 11/04/2017 - 12:10pm
Event date: 
24 Jun 2017 (All day)
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)

Junior Nationals is played 7-a-side (full-size pitches)

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

 

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.

 

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.

How to register: 

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!!
