UKU Club Competition Structure Review - 2019 Onwards

Are you a relatively new Ultimate player? Or have you been playing Ultimate for years? Do you ever have questions about certain aspects of our competition structure or why things are organised the way they are? If you answered yes to any of those questions then we want to hear from you!

 

GB Committee Announcement

This announcement relates to some immediate changes to the way we organise GB squads, noting that we expect this to be a starting point for ongoing improvements. Please see the full article for more details on the following:

  1. We are re-organising the GB Oversight Committee by both adding some roles, and making the roles of the existing group more specific.  The committee will be renamed to GB Committee.
  2. We are setting up a larger team of volunteers to help coordinate the activities that are needed to help run all the squads: e.g. coordinating the medical team, dealing with kit, etc.
  3. Process for appointing squad leaders 2019-20
  4. Timescales for squad applications and appointments

For context, we remind members that in busy years such as 2019 or 2020, there may be as many as 20 different Great Britain teams representing us at various WFDF/EUF events across different divisions, age-groups and surfaces.

IMPORTANT MEMBERSHIP UPDATE

You may be aware that an update to the UK Ultimate website and membership system is underway, and we are moving the data management and payment processing aspects of the website to a new commercial NGB membership management system called GoMembership.  


Please do not create a new account if you already had one on the old system.  Your details have been migrated.
