UKU Junior (U20) Open Outdoor Nationals & Schools (Under-14 & Under-17) National Championships [JOON&SNC] 2022

Submitted by megprice on Thu, 16/09/2021 - 1:37pm
Event date: 
25 Jun 2022 (All day)
Event details: 

We are pleased to announce that UKU Junior (U20) Open Outdoor Nationals & Schools (Under-14 & Under-17) National Championships 2022 will be a one day event held at the Stoughton Road Playing Fields, Leicester on Saturday 25th June 2022. 

 

Junior Nationals is played 7-a-side (full-size pitches)

UKU Schools National Championship Finals is played 5-a-side (reduced size pitches)

 

All events are Open divisions (i.e. no restrictions on gender) - there's nothing to prevent either an all-male or all-female team, or anywhere in between. A large percentage of teams will be mixed gender, so bring whatever mix of players you like!

 

We are of course aware that it can be tricky to organise logistics for something like this, but we'd love to have as many of you there as possible, so do please get in touch on the email below with any questions at all and we'll do what we can to help you make it happen.

 

Entry
ENTRIES OPEN: 7th March - 6th May

 

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.

 

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). 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.

 

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.
  • To be eligible for the UKU Under-17 division you must be in Year 11 or below (the rules for UK Domestic competition differ slightly to International competition).
  • To be eligible for the UKU Under-14 division you must be in Year 8 or below.

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 Joe Wyatt (joewyatt7@gmail.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 the Junior Forum (email to: joewyatt7@gmail.com is sufficient) and have them ratify 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.

 

Accommodation

We do not offer accommodation as part of the tournament, 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.

 

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:

 

  • For Junior events, at least 10 fit players able to travel
  • For Under-14 & Under-17 events, at least 8 fit players able to travel
However, more than this is recommended.

 

Multiple-teams:

Clubs/schools are welcome to enter more than one team, but in the event that the tournament becomes oversubscribed, clubs entering multiple additional teams may find lower ranked teams placed on a waiting list.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

UKU Junior Mixed Outdoor Nationals 2021 [CANCELLED]

Submitted by megprice on Wed, 15/09/2021 - 12:32pm
Event date: 
9 Oct 2021 (All day)
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.
    • For Under-17 Tournaments, to be in Year 11 or below.
      • Note that this is different to the international age range U17 which states you must not turn 17 in the year of the Tournament.
    • For Under-14 Tournaments, to be in Year 8 or below.

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

JUNIOR NATIONALS

Player Eligibility: Born on or after 1st Jan 2001

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 10 fit players able to travel.

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.

UKU SCHOOLS CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS

Player Eligibility: We expect to run 2 divisions.

For the Y11 Division, all players must be in Year 11 or lower.

For the Y8 Division, all players must be in Year 8 or lower.

 

Team Eligibility:

All teams must be strictly school teams.  In the future we expect all teams will have to qualify through local qualification events.  For the time being, all school teams that wish to enter will be considered eligible.

Given that we are still not at the stage of having numerous regional qualifiers, for now we WILL accept multiple entries from one school (only if there is room of course - priority always given to 1st teams). This should NOT be taken to mean that this will always be possible in the future, but for now we see no benefit in turning teams away.

Membership/Affiliation requirements:

Players do not need individual membership provided the school is UKU-affiliated. Please contact admin[at]ukultimate.com for more information on Schools Affiliation.

Team sizes and planning:

RULES: Please remember this is a 5-a-side competition played to the “UKU-Schools” adapted rules with smaller playing area, and relatively short games.  Exact game-lengths and tournament format will depend on the number of teams that enter.

Entry for this event is NOW OPEN. Click HERE to be taken to the event booking page.

 

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). 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 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.

 

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 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.


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.

INFO PACK

 

SPIRIT LINK

 

The UKU Under-17 and Under-14 Open Indoor Championships 2019/20 will be held over the weekend of Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd February 2020, at the same venue as the last few years - Aldersley Leisure Village in Wolverhampton. We will have ALL 4 pitches in the main sports hall (hardcourt surface; indoor trainers required), so this should give us plenty of room for all who wish to enter!

 

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 e.g. 17th-24th in 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-17 division you must be in Year 11 or below (the rules for UK Domestic competition differ slightly to International competition).

To be eligible for the UKU Under-14 division you must be in Year 8 or below.

 

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 Joe Wyatt (joewyatt7@gmail.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 the Junior Forum (email to: joewyatt7@gmail.com is sufficient) and have them ratify 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

Entry for this event is via the GoMembership event HERE.

 

The team fee for this event is £95.

 

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 (and there are a number around the motorways or Wolverhampton!) often have good deals, and there are a smattering of Youth Hostels nearby (www.yha.org.uk).

 

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.
