UKU Nationals 2017 - Schedule and Info Pack


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

UKU Masters Nationals - Entry Open

Firstly, we would like to apologise for the delay in getting out the information for Masters Nationals. We have found it difficult to find a venue and we delayed opening up team entry as we aimed to have a confirmed the venue before doing so. Unfortunately, this hasn’t been possible and we are still searching for a suitable place for the tournament, but we thought it was important to send out the entry form so teams can put it in their calendar and ensure they have a team together. 

 

The tournament is going to be held on Saturday 9th September and should be in the midlands area. We currently have two venues that we are waiting to hear back from so we hope to have the confirmed details for you soon. 

 

It will just be a one day event in only the Open and Mixed divisions. The team fee will be £130. 

WUCC 2018 - Pre-Registration

The WFDF 2018 World Ultimate Club Championships is going to be held in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA from Saturday 14th - Saturday 21st July 2018. 

 

An invitation has been sent out to all club teams which includes greater details about the tournament, including information about dates, costs, the venue, accommodation and food, and can be located in PDF format at the bottom of this page.

 

Within this document it informs all club teams to complete and submit the pre-registration form to express an interest to participate at WUCC 2018

UKU Beach Nationals 2017

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.

Nationals-EUCR 2017 Update - Women and Mixed

The UKU Competitions Committee have been reviewing the details for format and schedule for the 8-team Women’s and Mixed division.  

The most urgent information is that we have concluded that it is not necessary or appropriate to force the Women’s and Mixed divisions to play 3 days - so this announcement is a confirmation that play at Women’s and Mixed Nationals/EUCR-W will conclude at the end of Sunday 27th August.

Open and Womens Tour 3 Highlighs

Last weekend Open and Womens Tour 3 took place at Moor Lane playing fields in Birmingham and was the third of four UK Ultimate events being livestreamed by fanseat this season. You can watch all the games covered by fanseat on their website or you can check out the highlights here.

GB Junior Womens squad assistant coaches needed

We are looking to appoint two assistant coaches to support the ongoing training and development programme for the U20 and U17 GB Junior Women's squads.  Please see the attached role description and complete the GB Juniors application form to apply.

You may be aware that we made some changes to the training programme for these teams in 2017 and took the difficult decision to have a year off from sending the teams to the European Youth Ultimate Championships.  There have been a number of trials and training sessions over the last few months and we have a growing squad across both age groups that will continue to train together for at least the next 12 months in the run-up to WFDF World Junior Ultimate Championships in Canada, 2018.  In order to support all the players in the squad - including those that are not selected for Worlds 2018 - and continue to recruit new players into the programme, we are appointing two assistant coaches to work alongside lead coach Hannah Randles.  

If you would like to help the squad more generally, but cannot commit to one of the named coaching positions, we would still love to hear from you: please provide basic contact and reference details using the GB Juniors application form.
