Update on UKU Regionals and Nationals 2017

We would like to provide an update on the current plans for UKU Regionals and Nationals. We have a classic mix of exciting news alongside some ongoing challenges...


Nationals

We have been working on moving Nationals into a new stadium venue with Worcester Warriors (picture).  This venue has the unusual combination of a stadium and sufficient fields on site to accommodate the event.  Please note that we have not yet fully finalised the agreement, but wanted to make members aware of the plan.  Alongside this change we will be extending the event to include play on bank holiday Monday for most of the teams, and adding an annual dinner/party in the stadium on the Sunday night for players and spectators.  We plan to maintain the player fees at the same level as Nationals 2016.

GB Youth Women's teams 2017-18

Every year, the GB Junior coaching and management team meet to review progress and plan the next cycle.  This year we spent a significant amount of time discussing the challenges we face supporting the two women’s teams.  The recurring fundamental problem is that not enough players are trying out for the teams.  So we have decided to make some changes that we hope will increase and improve the opportunities for young women wanting to play competitive ultimate.

UK Ultimate Strategic Survey


During the first half of 2017 we will be updating UK Ultimate's long-term plan. To help start this process off we have created a simple survey to gather input on where members of the community feel we should be focussing effort and investment.

We're looking for your help in two ways please. Firstly, go and complete the survey yourself, it should only take you a few minutes to do so, and then once you've completed it please share it with any other UK Ultimate players you know and encourage them to fill it out.

Find the link to the survey here: https://goo.gl/forms/J6oIrO0qqSO8J3F93

We're setting a deadline of the 31st December for survey responses to come in by. 

If you have any questions regarding the strategic priorities and planning going forward please contact admin@ukultimate.com.
