JUNIOR NATIONALS

Player Eligibility: Born on or after 1st Jan 1994

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.

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.

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 to the Junior Forum (email to: kev_lowe@hotmail.com is sufficient) and have them 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 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 SCHOOLS CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS

Player Eligibility: All players must be in Year 11 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 (max 1 team per school) will be considered eligible.

Membership/Affiliation requirements:

Players do not need individual membership provided the school is UKU-affiliated.

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.

Accommodation:

Camping is available at this venue on Saturday night only. 

Please note that your team is fully responsible for all players that camp in particular including making sure that you have the appropriate number of adult supervisors for your group.  UKU does not provide any supervision for young people wishing to camp at this event.

If you don’t want to camp then there are plenty of cheap hotels in the area (Travelodge, etc) but you will need to organise this yourself.
