Updated child safeguarding documentation

UK Ultimate is pleased to announce that we have updated our child safeguarding policies and practice for 2017. The documents can all be found here:

http://www.ukultimate.com/safeguarding

The aim of the documents is to make sure ultimate in the UK supports all players under 18 to play our sport. This will help the recent growth in community teams that can recruit young players from their local areas to be key a part of their club for years to come. 

The documents should be easy to follow but please email safeguarding@ukultimate.com if you have questions or need support.

As a result of our school affiliation programme we now have data showing that well over 15,000 young people are playing ultimate at school.  With this as a backdrop we are looking to recruit a small Safeguarding Advisory Committee to help with ongoing task of keeping our documentation, policies and practices up to date as well as providing advice and information to the increasing number of clubs and coaches that are looking to make ultimate more accessible to younger players.

If you have experience or knowledge in child or adult safeguarding and feel you could offer some time to help, please get in touch using our contact form or through the safeguarding email above.   Thanks!

UKU Open & Women's Tour 2 - Schedule Update

The Cardiff schedule is now confirmed for the weekend.

 

The Salford schedule has been completely rewritten due to dropping from 13 teams to 12. The pools have changed, your start times have potentially changed - it's a wholly new schedule. If you based your plans on the previous draft, then that is unfortunate - you were specifically told not to do so for exactly this contingency!

 

Once again, the Salford schedule will probably have to remain as a draft until at least this evening, as it's entirely possible we've made errors in the new version. Please do help to check for any mistakes. The link remains the same as before.
