Funded training course: Sudden Cardiac Arrest eLearning

UK Coaching Sudden Cardiac Arrest eLearning

Having witnessed Christian Eriksen’s live collapse at Euro 2020, we have no doubt that you will be alongside us with your thoughts and best wishes for the Danish player and his family.

The occurrence of the medical emergency in a live sporting environment has brought the reality of sudden cardiac arrest, on the pitch, in the park, on the kerb, to a stark reality.

The question is: do you know how to respond?

  • Would you recognise the onset of a sudden cardiac arrest?
  • Do you know the actions to take?
  • Do you know how to perform CPR?
  • Would you be able to locate the nearest defibrillator?

UK Coaching have collaborated with Sport England who have funded an eLearning course that everyone can access free of charge. It will guide you through how to respond quickly to a sudden cardiac arrest.

Learn how to save a life.

Women's National Cup Entry Deadline!

Don't forget that sign ups for the Women’s Cup close on Sunday 20th June at midnight! 

 

Following the completion of the first Round of Mixed games in the National Cup, there is one week left for Women's teams to enter into the Women's division if they wish to. Roster rules mean that once a team is knocked out, all players are free to compete for a different team, so if you think that you might be able to get a Women's team together now then make sure that you sign up!  

 

Spots will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. As soon as the number of entries reaches 8, sign ups to the Women’s Cup will close, regardless of the date. We currently have 5 teams entered.

The Challenge League - What is it?

Not sure what the Challenge League is?

We've put together a mini info-series of videos so that you can find out!

 

 

Interested in taking part? Your teams can sign up to the Challenge League HERE. Once you've registered, you'll be able to see all of the other teams that also want to play so that you can start to arrange games with them. 

 

We will be publishing a full list of registered teams soon, as well as a map of where you can find them, along with more details on the rankings. Keep an eye out for future updates! 

Return to play - Phase D stall-count

We have received some queries about the implementation of the third-party stall-count as we move into a period where games are perhaps more competitive.  As a result we are publishing the attached guidance which recommends an approach to this situation that should be adopted unless both teams agree to an alternative that they both prefer.

We would like to reiterate the importance of following the Return-to-play procedures.  Ultimate is a close-contact team sport.  Our rule modifications and other covid-related procedures have been signed off by the UK Government and it is only because of those modifications that we are able to play something approaching normal Ultimate at the moment.  Several other team sports (notably rugby and netball) are still subject to similar or more substantial rule modifications.  

COVID Guidance Update - Scotland

Following clarification from sportscotland on the definition of a 'bubble' and the maximum number of participants per day, we have updated the UKU Club Guidance Appendix - Scotland

 

Please ensure that you read the updated Scottish appendix as this may impact any fixtures planned to take place in Scotland. 

 

We also just wanted to let you all know that we are keeping an eye on all government updates in terms of the wider, developing situation with the Indian variant across the UK. We are continuing to review the guidance published and we will announce any updates on our usual channels (the UKU website, Facebook and Instagram).
