GB Senior team appointments

UK Ultimate is pleased to announce the following bids have been successful to run the senior squads for the EUF European Ultimate Championships 2015 and the WFDF World Ultimate & Guts Championships 2016:

Open: Justin Foord, Marc Guilbert
Women’s: Jenna Thompson
Mixed: Rich Hims, Niamh Delaney, Magali Matsumiya, Steve Kolthammer, Sam Vile
Open Masters: Dave Grayson, Rob McGowan
Women’s Masters: Claerwen Snell, KJ Boardman-Hims

The GB Oversight Committee can foresee some concern amongst UKU members that the Open, Women's and Mixed bids may appear to be quite London-centric and/or closely linked to a club.  These concerns have been reviewed in detail during the application process.  We cannot emphasise enough that we require the managers to run truly Great Britain teams that are absolutely not just an extension of club teams. Players from across the country are encouraged to attend trials.  The committee will be remaining involved with all team managers in all divisions throughout the 2015/2016 campaign to ensure that there is no deviation from this premise.

UKU Youth Coaches and Team Managers 2015-16

GB Ultimate logo

Congratulations and thank you to the following people who will be volunteering as Coaches and Team Managers for the GB Youth Squads 2015-16. 

We are looking to expand the pool of assistant coaches that may support one or more of the squads from time to time.  This would suit people who would like to help, but are not able to commit to all the sessions or to a week away with the teams in the Summer. 

Please contact us if you would like to apply or if you have any questions about the role or levels of commitment.

Junior Women's Indoor Nationals 2014-15

Submitted by benheywood on Tue, 14/10/2014 - 5:18pm
Event date: 
30 Nov 2014 - 09:00 - 17:00
Event details: 

This year's Junior Women's Indoor Nationals will be held on Sunday November 30th at Ellowes Hall Sports College, Dudley.  There will be space for 16 teams. The event will run from approximately 9:30am to 5pm.

Entry into the tournament will cost £60 per team.  Payment will be made directly to UKU.  In order to secure a place in the tournament, please fill in the form here:

http://www.ukultimate.com/event_entry_form


Please note that the initial deadline for entries will be Friday 7th November. The deadline is relatively early (3 weeks from the tournament) in order that we can confirm who has a spot in plenty of time to organise your transport etc.

After this deadline, spaces in the tournament may be allocated to second and third teams. If you would like to enter more than one team, please read the details below before entering, and be aware that they may not all get in (and won't be confirmed until after 7th November).

If you have a small number of players but not enough for a full team (or enough for 1 but not quite enough for 2), get in touch because it's likely that others will be in the same position and we could combine players so that more girls get to take part.

Eligibility:
Players should be born in 1995 or later. Where possible teams should be made up of girls from a single club / school / organisation but where that is not possible, the first option should be to pick up for the most local team.  If you want to play for a team that is not your school or most local team, please get in touch and we will do what we can to make sure that this is done fairly.

Multiple teams:
The number of teams at this tournament has varied hugely in the past.  We have taken the decision to stick to 16 teams for ease of organisation. Places will initially be reserved for first teams. Any additional teams will be placed on a waiting list.  These teams will be given spaces if they are still available after the initial deadline (November 17th), with priority going to second teams, then third teams if appropriate.  We expect there will be spaces for a several 2nd / 3rd teams and these will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
