EUCF 2021 Update

The EUF Board have provided an update on their planned approach to EUCF 2021 (previous announcement of that plan from February). The key points at this time are summarised as follows:

  • Should an event take place it will be one xEUCF event in Bruges
  • Planning the xEUCF is currently going ahead.
    • The TOC has approached the city council and we are waiting for their decision on June 15th. After that EUF and the TOC will reassess the financial risk to make the final decision about the event viability.
    • Any registraion or fee's would only be after this decision.
  • TOC has to make financial deposits on the 1.7. and it is not sure if a refund is possible after that date.
  • The bid distribution is being revaluated from last year:
    • Without last year's competition, we will give bids to national federations so that they can decide which team to send. 
    • The distribution is based on previous EUCF results (last 4 Events).
  • The current aim is to host:
    • 20 Mixed Teams
    • 20 Women Teams
    • 32 Open Teams. Should the number of teams need to be reduced that reduction would start in the open division until it reached the same number of teams as the other divisions.
    • The minimum required number of 16 per division

Play Ultimate 2021 - Really no weekend tournaments?

With restrictions easing and organised sport being permitted again, we’re aware that you’re all probably waiting to see what Ultimate will look like in 2021… You can find our plans for the coming year HERE, which include major changes to UKU Rankings and Club Nationals. But above all, we just want to encourage people to get back out there, play lots of Ultimate, and help rebuild the sport in their area.

Conditioning ideas - be careful out there

ConditioningIdeasJamesMeadSome of our recent announcements have featured pleas for everyone to take it easy as we get back to playing and give your body time to adjust to playing Ultimate again.  We asked a couple of friendly S&C experts for some ideas - especially for those of us who don’t normally “get around” to doing any exercise and conditioning away from the ultimate pitch.

  • You may have seen Jools Murray’s “Waking up the body” series on our facebook page.  If not - definitely check it out!  

But we figure that not everyone will get around to watching videos, so we asked James Mead, JAM Performance, to come up with some ideas that would fit on one page:
