Funding and Costs:

The cost of each UK based event will be £20 to attend. This will include training fees, accommodation and food but it will not assist with transport costs. The cost of attending the World Championships (transport, kit, food, accommodation, etc) will be confirmed later on in the year. However, previous fees have been around £700 - £800. Funding from the Ultimate Frisbee Organisation will be provided to assist the squad, however, players must fund their own expenses throughout the year and will receive no individual help from the organisation. Players are advised to fund raise where necessary and the organisation will provide advisory assistance where possible to help players achieve the funding they need.


Please keep Head Coach Linda Gilmour updated in the case of any injuries over the course of the season; also if your ability to attend training weekends changes. Her email address is


We look forwards to seeing you!
