Junior Women's Indoor Nationals 2021-22 Final Standings

Well done to everyone that took part in Junior Women’s Indoor Nationals on 20th November 2021.  Huge congratulations to U20 Flux 1, U17 Airbadgers 1 and U14 Airbadgers 1 for winning their respective divisions (all three teams pictured below).

Final standings for the event can be found on the online schedule: https://bit.ly/JWIN2021Schedule.

Congratulations also to the winners of the SotG award(s): U20 Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome, U17 Evolution and U14 Airbadgers 1.  

Everyone did a fantastic job of clearing up as they left (thank-you) - and the only lost property is an aquamarine-coloured water bottle that we can post or take to Junior Indoors in January.  Please email us to let us know what you would prefer.

  

Coach Forums are back!

Forums are opportunities for coaches, players and leaders to come together and talk about how we teach and coach Ultimate. Forums are an opportunity to share knowledge and experience, ask questions and build connections with others - they’re designed to be relaxed and informal. They’re also free for UKU members! 

To help people access and understand the new online coaching materials we’re kicking off with a series of Forums focused on the Level 1 modules - first up, TEACHING BEGINNERS.

** access to online coach education materials is available to those with Full, Uni/U18 and Coach memberships **

UKU Club Open & Women’s Indoor Qualifiers 2021-22 - Confirmed Team Lists

Thank you to all of the teams that have entered into the Club Open & Women’s Indoor Qualifier events scheduled to take place this season. We have received an unprecedented number of entries and it’s great to see so many of you interested in competing in 2021-22! 

 

Unfortunately though, this level of interest has also meant that quite a few of the events are oversubscribed and so we have had to run the allocation criteria to allocate the spaces for each event. 

 

The final team lists can be seen here: https://bit.ly/COWIQ2021TeamLists 

 

HOWEVER, we are in the process of trying to see if there’s a way for us to accommodate more teams across the competition series. Read the full announcement for more details...

UKU Junior Women's Indoor Nationals 2021 - Info Pack & Confirmed Teams

We are looking forward to welcoming teams to Junior Women’s Indoor Nationals 2021 at Cranford Superdome.  Please see the list of confirmed teams below.  The U14 and U20 divisions are smaller than we would all like, but we are looking at some scheduling options to make sure every player can have at least 5 or 6 games.

UKU University Committee Vacancies

At UK Ultimate we have a university sub-committee, made up of volunteers, which oversees the university side of ultimate. It prides itself on hearing what those from within the university ultimate community have to say and take those opinions on board when shaping tournaments, divisions and BUCS competitions.

 

Currently, we are looking for a regional coordinator and a division coordinator role to be filled:

  • South East
  • Women’s Division
