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.

GB U24 teams announced

Congratulations to the players selected (see below) for the Great Britain U24 teams that will compete at the WFDF World U24 Ultimate Championships in Perth, Australia, Jan 2018.  These players were selected from our first ever GBU24 Development Programme which has been running since the initial selection phase in Autumn 2016.  We would like to thank all the players, as well as the coaches of course, who have been involved from the first trial through to the final selection.  It has been a challenging, and hopefully rewarding, programme which aimed to provide a broader training experience, enable everyone to train and play in mixed and single-gender teams, and improve the sense of "one GB squad" playing in three teams at the final event.  The selected players now look forwards to an exciting few months preparing for Worlds!

Not Playing at Nationals? Volunteers Needed - Are You Available?

Do you have any plans for August Bank Holiday weekend? If not, and if you’re not playing, you should volunteer to help out at UKU Nationals which is being held at The Pavilion, Moor Lane in Birmingham from Saturday 25th August - Monday 28th August!

We’re currently looking for volunteers to mainly fill the roles of timekeeping and scoring on each of the pitches, as well as helping us set up/set down and to do some stewarding over the weekend. In return for your time and hard work we will provide you with food for the weekend, camping on-site, and some free swag! As well as that, we’re also in the process of organising some
free sessions for over the weekend (Friday-Monday) which you can choose to attend as another thank you for your help. We’re planning them to be skills sessions that can be useful to you as an ultimate player/ultimate coach/ultimate frisbee enthusiast so if you have any great thoughts then let us know and we can see what we can do, we’re always open to more ideas!
