Event details: 

SADLY THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO LACK OF INTEREST.

We hope to try and run the event later this year if we can find an opportunity in the calendar. 

 

We are excited to confirm that Junior Mixed Outdoor Nationals 2021 will go ahead following confirmation from the venue and interest from a number of teams!

 

The event is being held at Malmesbury Secondary School, Bristol (SN16 0DF) on Saturday 9th October. It is a ONE DAY event. 

 

Entries are open in all three divisions: Under-14, Under-17and Under-20. Unfortunately, we cannot confirm that all three divisions will definitely go ahead as it depends on the level of entries we receive, but we hope to receive enough interest to run at least one division and we will confirm this once entries close.

 

The event deadline is Thursday 23rd September at 12 noon. We understand that this does not give you much time, but as we want to try and confirm teams as early as possible to give teams as much notice as we can to finalise their plans for the event. If any division does not go ahead, we will refund any entry fees that have been paid. 

 

Teams need to be entered using the GoMembership websiteIf you need any help on how to do this, check out the "how-to" steps published here. Alternatively, drop us an email at events@ukultimate.com and we'll be happy to help. 

 

The team entry fee for this event is £100.


The event will be played according to the specifications used at the International School Sports Federation's Ultimate World Schools Championships event:

- 5-a-side

- reduced size pitches (66m x 24m; 12m endzones)

- 2-3 gender split on pitch at all times

 

Membership/Affiliation requirements:

Players playing for UKU-affiliated schools playing as school teams are not required to have membership.

All other players must have minimum Basic Membership of UK Ultimate.

 

Team sizes and planning:

Clubs must ensure that they have appropriate levels of adult supervision in place for the event.

Based on past experience please note that you should not enter a team unless you have at least 8 fit players (4 of each gender) able to travel, though more than this is recommended.

We also strongly recommend that teams plan to have a non-playing adult travelling with the team. There have been instances where small teams have had an injury, and a second player has had to accompany the injured player to hospital, leaving behind a team that is too small to continue. This not only spoils the tournament for the team concerned, but also for their opposition who have travelled and paid to play games, only to find they have a walkover - not ideal for anyone.

 

Need a team?

If you are a player or a small group of players without enough for a full team, then it may be possible to arrange for you to join up with another team; everyone involved in Junior Ultimate wants you there. HOWEVER you must explain your situation by emailing events@ukultimate.com and have UKU ratify which is the most appropriate team for you to join with. Where possible, players are linked up with players from a similar geographical area.

 

Multiple-teams:

Clubs/schools are welcome to enter more than one team. We don't anticipate having to limit the number of teams attending this event, but in the event that the tournament becomes oversubscribed, clubs entering multiple additional teams may find lower ranked teams placed on a waiting list.

 

Age Eligibility:

  • Eligible Participants; For an athlete to be eligible to compete in official Youth tournaments;
    • For Under-20 Tournaments, must not have turned 19 as of January 1st in the year of the Tournament.

There is no minimum standard that your team must meet to enter any Youth Event.
