The Development Conference - The aim of the conference is to bring together everyone who is interested in knowing what's going on and putting a little extra back into the community. Come along and help support UK Ultimate’s ambitions of growing the sport here in Britain, be a part of it and help shape the future of Ultiamte in the UK. Any and all UKU members that would like to attend can, and it's free.  Naturally we hope and expect that those with a particular interest in development and growth of the sport will want to attend. We also have a university-specific session in the evening. This session will be ideal for any incumbent or new committee members.

Registration is not required but is helpful for our planning. Anyone can come along, it's free. Register Here.

The Elite Skills Clinic - led by Sion "Brummie" Scone with other top players and/or coaches. Last year the sessions were designed for players who are thinking of attending GB trials for the first time this year.  The day will also be appropriate for strong Uni players, or club players who have had little or no access to training with elite players and teams. There are also a number of places for people who would like to participate in the day from the perspective of a coach - with that group working alongside the drills, games and discussions.  "Coaching-participants" will be able to join in as players in much of the activity.

We have deliberately planned that the University-Ultimate discussions will take place after the Skills Clinic has finished because we expect the clinic content to appeal to university club captains and committee members.
