UKU Member Update
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.

We have included some relevant international competitions for reference.

UK Ultimate is delighted to confirm that the organisation has been awarded formal recognition as the UK National Governing Body (NGB) for Ultimate by the home country sports councils: Sport England, sportNI, sportScotland and Sport Wales. Ultimate was officially recognised in the UK as a sporting activity in 2008. However, in some parts of the UK, not having a formally recognised NGB can be barrier to entry for clubs or local organisations wishing to enter into discussions about access to facilities and/or funding.
Following a lengthy application process we received official confirmation of the recognition decision this week. It is a notable milestone in the development of the sport in the UK, although it should be noted that recognition does not carry with it any guarantee of funding or additional support. Please contact us if you have specific queries relating to this exciting news.
