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.
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.
