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.

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.

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.

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.
