UKU 2021 Season Feedback - Share your opinion!

Following a pretty successful 2021 season, albeit after a bit of an uncertain start, we wanted to reach out to you to get feedback from everyone that’s taken part (or not), at all levels, to see what we might do for the 2021-22 season!

 

Don’t worry, we’re never going to completely get rid of the weekend events that we know you love (we love them too!), but we want to find a balance for moving forward. 

 

Let us know what you think. We want to hear from you!

Did you play in 2021?

Did you not play at all? 

Did you want to play but the format didn’t work for you?

Did you play more because the format worked better for you?

Did you find the use of single fixture days beneficial and/or enjoyable? 

Did you miss weekend events?

 

Whatever your opinions are, we genuinely want to know them. If we don’t hear from you, whether it’s positive or negative, we end up with only having the views of a small proportion of players to work with. This might mean that we change the competition format and it might not be in the direction that you want it to be, so get involved!

 

Here are the different ways you can get in touch and share your views...

UKU University Committee Vacancies

At UK Ultimate we have a university sub-committee, made up of volunteers, which oversees the university side of ultimate, the UKU University Committee (UKUUC). 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 two Regional Coordinators and Open Division coordinator roles to be filled:

  • Scotland

  • Open Division
