GB Juniors 2016

Hello,

My name is Ruth Flight and I am the GB Junior Ultimate Programme Manager- big title, but basically I cover everything to do with the planning and running of the GB junior Programme.

The main bulk of my time is taken up with the planning and running of trials for both the U17 and U20 groups, and then the organisation required to take 90-100 players and approximately 20+ staff away each summer for European Championships in Veenendaal. 

We at UKU Juniors aim to provide all players and staff with a safe, competitive and fun environment within which they can grow and develop both in their sporting abilities and on a social level, learning to adapt and work within a highly ambitious team setup, whilst having a blast at the same time.  

Ultimate is still in general terms a ‘fairly new sport’ within the UK, but it is growing rapidly and juniors is the fastest growing section across the board.  With this in mind we are constantly updating and developing our systems and each year I am in post gives me fresh challenges to overcome and incorporate into our working guidelines.  

All our staff are DBS checked by the UKU so you can rest assured that your children/players are in the best of hands.  Our staff are all volunteers and  give up their time willingly to help coach and work with the young players, so please bear this in mind if you are waiting on a reply to email etc, they all have ‘normal fulltime jobs’, so it is not always  easy for them to reply quickly, please be patient.

Please get in touch with the relevant staff member should you have any questions regarding your child or player.

My aim is to use the website and in particular this page to publish all the information necessary in regards to GB juniors, so please keep your eye on this and check here first before contacting staff. 

Kind regards

 

Ruth Flight

GB Junior Ultimate Programme Manager

Player Costs and Payment

The payment plan DOES NOT INCLUDE TRIALS payments, these are payable to your Team Manager/coaches on the day of trials!

2016 GB Junior Ultimate U17 Women & Open Team Costs

The following costs are an estimation as I have not had confirmation of a few of the major costs, i.e. hotel and food.  With this in mind, I have created a payment plan where the final payment in June will be confirmed once I have these costs finalised.  I have worked on an ‘educated guess’ from previous years’ experience and costings, and will adjust the costs as soon as I have received the relevant confirmations.

The UKU is not a large corporate company with the financial ability to send large lumps sums of money without consulting our finance department, so please bear in mind that payment due dates are the FINAL date which the money should be with the UKU.  Also, please feel free to make payments before these dates if possible, as I have to send Team Fees as early as March 31st with player fees due soon after.   

This years’ costs are inclusive of all your weekend team training costs, but NOT any tour costs, if your team are planning to play at tour as a warm up for Europeans, then you will pay for those weekends separately.   

Please download the attachment 'GBJ 2016 Payment Details' for instructions on how to make payments.

The payment plan for the Under 20 teams 2016, is as follows:

Payment Due Date      Amount Due

March 30th                                           £200.00 DEPOSIT -  is confirmation of your place in the team and is non-refundable.

April 30th                                              £200.00

May 31st                                               £200.00

June 30th                                             £200.00 – TBC -when confirmations received

U17 Open Staff and Contact

 

gbju17w@gmail.com

The GB U17 Open teams staff leading the team and making selections this year will be:

Jolyon Thompson – Coach
Joe Spreckley – Coach
Matt Morecroft – Manager

The team will be supported at trials and trainings by a number of different staff drawn from a pool of support coaches as needed.

 

 

 

U17 Open Trials

 

 

GB U17 Open plan to hold a two-stage trial this year – a first stage open to all; and a second stage which will be invite only, chosen from those who attended the first trial.

A core of players from last year’s team are still eligible to play – but no player is guaranteed a place for the coming year; returning players must still attend trials as well.

We are interested, at this point, to hear from anyone eligible to play who wants to attend trials. It is our intention to see everyone at trials, to make sure we don’t miss out on the chance to assess budding talents (but we reserve the right to make pre-selections based on the information submitted, if numbers become unmanageable).

• Trial 1 – 6th February 2016 (1 day only - open to all)

Please note the first trial is expected to run from 12pm-6pm.

The venue for both trials will be:

Alan Higgs Centre,
Allard Way, 
Coventry,
CV3 1HW http://covsf.com/csf/centres/ahc

For insurance purposes, all trialists must be at least a basic member of UKU to attend – sign up at http://www.ukultimate.com/join.

Trials will take place on a mixture of indoor and outdoor 3G rubber crumb pitches, to help avoid impact from bad weather – this means metal studded boots will not be acceptable; plastic or moulded studded boots only please.

Details may be subject to change, and trialists will be informed of any changes in advance to their designated contact email addresses.

Further details will be emailed to trialists in January, once sign up to trials has closed.
