UKU L1 Coaching Course, Leicester, 23rd Sept 2017

Announcing another opportunity to take your UKU L1 Coaching Award in Leicester on 23rd September 2017

Updated child safeguarding documentation

UK Ultimate is pleased to announce that we have updated our child safeguarding policies and practice for 2017. The documents can all be found here:

http://www.ukultimate.com/safeguarding

The aim of the documents is to make sure ultimate in the UK supports all players under 18 to play our sport. This will help the recent growth in community teams that can recruit young players from their local areas to be key a part of their club for years to come. 

The documents should be easy to follow but please email safeguarding@ukultimate.com if you have questions or need support.

As a result of our school affiliation programme we now have data showing that well over 15,000 young people are playing ultimate at school.  With this as a backdrop we are looking to recruit a small Safeguarding Advisory Committee to help with ongoing task of keeping our documentation, policies and practices up to date as well as providing advice and information to the increasing number of clubs and coaches that are looking to make ultimate more accessible to younger players.

If you have experience or knowledge in child or adult safeguarding and feel you could offer some time to help, please get in touch using our contact form or through the safeguarding email above.   Thanks!
