Merry Christmas and happy holidays to one and all. We're operating a reduced staff over the Christmas holidays so if you get in touch with us we may not see your message straight away.
The World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) has announced that it has reached a cooperation Agreement with the Olympic Channel to collaborate on content.
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...
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.
Congratulations to Tom Daly, Tanya Fozzard and George Perry who have all succesfully won elections to be elected as members of the University Committee.
They have been elected in the roles of:
University Coordinator (Board of Directors Role) - Tom Daly
Mixed Coordinator - Tanya Fozzard
Western Regional Coordinator - George Perry
We are pleased to announce the programme for the Great Britain u17 Boys 2017 cycle! Its pinnacle, the European Youth Ultimate Championships (EYUC), will take place in Veenendaal (Netherlands) on August 5th to 11th 2017.
Junior Skills Clinics:
We will be hosting 3 Junior Skills Clinics in the Midlands, South East and South West. All juniors, year 8-11, will be expected to attend (their local session) irrelevant of skills, experience or interest in the GB cycle. The clinic will cater to all levels and abilities.
Forty-eight (!) school teams are already signed up for UK Ultimate's biggest ever U17/U14 championships.
The event will be held at Aldersley Leisure Village on the 28/29 January 2017 - more details on the event page.
A whopping 28 U17 and 20 U14 teams have already entered - but we do have more pitches available than last year, so if there are other schools out there who have missed the initial deadline, do please get in touch and we are probably still able to squeeze you in. Please find entry details on the event page.
Following Friday's closing date, we're delighted to announce the 20 teams who have been lucky enough to earn a spot at CWIN near Glasgow in February.
