Announcing request for GB Beach squad managers 2019

WFDF recently announced the 2019 European Beach Ultimate Championships to be held in Portugal, May 2019.  

Further to our announcement on 9th July 2018 about GB squads 2019-20, we invite applications from individuals or small groups* that would like to put themselves forwards to manage one of the GB teams entering EBUC 2019.  (*) Groups should have an identified lead individual.

At EBUC 2019 it is expected that some/most team managers will be planning to play, and will likely appoint themselves captain or spirit captain.  Applications from non-players are very welcome.  Player-managers that intend to appoint a coach should set out in their application which decisions will be delegated to the coach.

Applications should be made using this form.  Team manager responsibilities are outlined here.  The closing date is midnight 31st July.  If anyone attending WUCC would like to apply but is struggling due to their WUCC commitments please email gb.admin@ukultimate.com.

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.

Opportunity to attend Premier League Elite Coaching Apprenticeship scheme session

UK Ultimate has been contacted by the Premier League with a request to support the induction to their Elite Coaching Apprenticeship Scheme (ECAS). The scheme provides intensive development for coaches of top tier football clubs and academies. As part of the induction, the Premier League would like the coaches to experience a difference sport and to challenge their coaching in a new setting. To ensure we can support this,  we are looking for a group of elite/experienced players or player-coaches to attend the event - please see details below.

UKU OWT3 Roster Checks

All clubs competing at OWT3 this weekend are required to use the club profiles area of the new GoMembership portal to create teams and add all players competing with those teams to the rosters. 

For future events all clubs will need to have created teams in order to enter events. A how to guide on creating teams and adding players to those teams can be found here.
