GB Ultimate latest news

Plans for GB Ultimate 2015-16 are getting into full swing now:

Beach team appointments are mostly complete - but we're still looking for applicants to run the Masters-Women team.

We're inviting applicants for Under-23s and the Junior squads.

UKU has also created a part-time GB Administrator post to support the U23, senior, masters and beach teams - and we're extending the deadline for applications to end August.

The process for applying to manage the senior and masters squads for EUC 2015 and WUGC 2016 will announced soon.

Regional Development initiative

To support our plans to see "Ultimate in every school, a club in every town, and a coach in every club," UK Ultimate is setting up a new initiative called the Regional Development Network.  Some background information, and an outline of the idea, is presented below - we hope to spark some debate and plenty of action.  The ideas will be discussed as part of a wider development discussion at the UKU Development Conference and AGM on Sat 13 Sept in Loughborough.  Why not come along?
