UKU Junior (Under-20) Open Indoor Nationals [JOIN] 2021-22

Submitted by megprice on Thu, 16/09/2021 - 1:23pm
Event date: 
29 Jan 2022 (All day) - 30 Jan 2022 (All day)
Event details: 

The UKU Junior (Under-20) Open Indoor Championships 2021-22 will be held over the weekend of Saturday 29th - Sunday 30th January 2022 at the Alan Higgs Centre in Coventry

 

Please note the earlier date of this competition compared to previous years.

 

Games will start at approximately 10am on the Saturday and we will aim for games to be finished at 5pm on the Sunday, followed by a short presentation/award ceremony.

 

Please note that unlike many other sports, Ultimate tournaments are always played out for position all the way down - so even teams ranked towards the lower end of their division will still play a Quarter, Semi and Final in their bracket. Even the most inexperienced team will still expect to play the same number of games as the winners - you don't get knocked out early at these events. Come and join in the fun!

 

Eligibility

There is no qualifying round, and no 'minimum standard' that your team must meet - there will certainly be teams of beginners participating. If you are a newly formed school team, you are very, very much invited!

  • To be eligible for the UKU Under-20 division, you must not turn 20 before the end of the year.

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.

 

As the tournament is Open, there are no gender restrictions - all-male teams, or all-female teams, or anything in between, are absolutely fine.

Please contact events@ukultimate.com if there are any queries.

 

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 to us by emailing events@ukultimate.com and have it confirmed which is the most appropriate team for you to join with.

 

Please also note that eligibilty decisions are made by volunteers - we're keen to help out, but do make sure to get your requests in early to make that easier.

 

Entry

ENTRIES OPEN: 8th November - 10th December.

 

The team fee for this event is £110.

 

After the entry deadline we will post the list of confirmed teams on both our website and the Schools Newsletter.

 

It is very possible that this event will be filled following the closing date for entries (we hope to be able to accommodate all entries made by the closing date). Any remaining spaces will be awarded on a first come first served basis and it can't be guaranteed that you'll be awarded a spot, so ideally make sure that you enter before the deadline!

 

If the tournament is oversubscribed at the closing date, we will prioritise first teams from each institution, and then second teams above third teams etc all the way down. If the cut-off happens to fall between teams at the same level (e.g. 4th teams from two institutions) then priority will go to whoever entered on the earliest date (or be decided by the drawing of lots if we can't separate them by date). Once the initial deadline has passed, places are confirmed, and the entry of a new first team will not 'bump' someone's 7th team anymore - it's literally first come first served at that stage for any remaining places.

 

Accommodation

Hopefully the central location will mean that some teams might be able to travel home rather than needing accommodation on the Saturday night, but for some of you that clearly won't be possible. Places like www.travelodge.co.uk often have good deals. However, if you are really struggling for accommodation, please get in touch on events@ukultimate.com and we will do what we can to assist with suggestions, but we do not offer accommodation as part of the tournament.

 

Team Sizes and Planning

Clubs must ensure that they have appropriate levels of adult supervision in place for the event. We also strongly recommend that teams plan to have a non-playing adult travelling with the team. 

 

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

 

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.

Event date: 
20 Nov 2021 (All day)
Event details: 

The UKU Under-14, Under-17 and Under-20 Women's Indoor Championships 2021-22 will be held on Saturday 20th November 2021, at Cranford Superdome in Hounslow. We will have 4 pitches available for the day, giving us plenty of room for teams who wish to enter.

 

Please note that it is possible, due to venue availability, that this event will run from early afternoon until the evening. We hope to receive confirmation soon on whether we can run the event earlier in the day.

More accurate timings will be released once entries are confirmed, but please account for being on site from 1pm until 8pm as a maximum.

 

Please note that unlike many other sports, Ultimate tournaments are always played out for position all the way down - so even teams ranked towards the lower end of their division will still play a Quarter, Semi and Final in their bracket. Even the most inexperienced team will still expect to play the same number of games as the winners - you don't get knocked out early at these events. Come and join in the fun!

Entry

ENTRIES OPEN: 20th September - 15th October.

 

The team entry fee for this event is £90.

 

After the entry deadline we will post the list of confirmed teams on both our website and the Schools Newsletter.

 

We do expect that we will still have a few places remaining after that date so it is certainly worth getting in touch if you have left it late - but those spaces will be awarded on a first come first served basis and it can't be guaranteed that you'll be awarded a spot, so ideally make sure that you enter before the deadline!

 

If the tournament is oversubscribed at the closing date (unlikely, but you never know) we will prioritise first teams from each institution, and then second teams above third teams etc all the way down. If the cut-off happens to fall between teams at the same level (e.g. 4th teams from two institutions) then priority will go to whoever entered on the earliest date (or be decided by the drawing of lots if we can't separate them by date).

Accommodation

Hopefully the timing will mean that the majority of teams might be able to travel on the morning of the event rather than needing accommodation. But for those where this isn't possible, places like www.travelodge.co.uk often have good deals.

 

If you are really struggling for accommodation, please get in touch on events@ukultimate.com and we will do what we can to assist with suggestions, but we do not offer accommodation as part of the tournament.

UKU Club Mixed Indoor Qualifiers [CXIQ] 2021-22 - February Events

Submitted by megprice on Thu, 16/09/2021 - 12:42pm
Event date: 
5 Feb 2022 (All day) - 6 Feb 2022 (All day)
Event details: 

Club Mixed Indoor Qualifiers 2021-22 will be held at two different venues on this date.

 

These qualifier events are brand NEW for the 2021-22 season. This is due to the high demand that there has been for CXIN for the last few years so we thought that introducing a qualifying event would open up more opportunities for teams to play Mixed Indoors throughout the season. Only 16 teams will across all 4 events will qualify to CXIN (19th-20th March 2022).

 

It is possible that we may not receive enough interest for all 4 events to go ahead as planned (2 in January, 2 in February). We will make a judgement once entries are closed to determine whether we will use the bookings we have, reduce down to 1 day events or cancel those that do not have enough interest. However, we encourage all interested teams to enter, and if we have to make any decisions to reduce the events then we will refund teams as/when necessary. 

 

South CXIQ#2 - Cranford Superdome

Info Pack: TBC

Schedule: TBC

Midlands CXIQ#2 - Alan Higgs

Info Pack: TBC

Schedule: TBC 

 

More venue details, including the playing surface, expected times of play, and full venue addresses, can be found here: https://bit.ly/UKUClubIndoors2021_22  

 

These form part of the same qualification tournament as the other divisional events occuring in January 2022 so you cannot play at one of these events and also one of those! If we find that this has happened then you will be disqualified from both tournaments.

 

There are no regional limitations so feel free to enter whichever venue/date suits your team best.

 

COWIQ ENTRIES OPEN: 3rd November - 1st December 

 

Keep an eye out on the UKU Event Announcements Newsletter for updates and reminders.

 

Please don't forget that you need to confirm NO LATER THAN TUESDAY 8th FEBRUARY if you are NOT taking up your qualification spot at COWIN by emailing events@ukultimate.com, or even if you're just concerned at this point that you won't be able to enter. This will then give us enough time to award the spot to another team. If you do not let us know by that date, you WILL be liable to pay the full entry fee even if you are not attending Nationals. 

 

This event will also follow the UKU Tournament Rules which can be accessed here: http://bit.ly/UKUTournamentRules
