2020 sees the first indoor masters nationals competition coming to you over two days from the original city of sport, Sheffield! We have capacity for 16 teams for the weekend long event, and welcome entries from open, mixed and women's teams. The exact format is to be decided but it would be safe to assume an open tournament, with the potential for additional mixed and women's prizes as necessary.

EVENT WEBSITEhttps://sites.google.com/ukultimate.com/uxin2019-20/home

 

If you DO NOT want to take up your qualifying spot from UXIR then you must let us know by TUESDAY 29th OCTOBER following the tournament, otherwise you may be liable to pay the full team fee. Please consider the chances of you playing at UXIN over the weekend of regionals if you anticipate you have a chance of qualifying. We understand that there is not long to decide, however, there is a very short space of time before the National competition and we need to have enough time to find a replacement team if you do not wish to play. 


UXIN ENTRIES OPEN: 29th October - 7th November (Enter via UKU GoMembership Portal)

Keep an eye out on the Facebook regional pages for updates, reminders and info on how to enter using the new entry process.

 

 

UKU/BUCS Indoors Entry Rules

BUCS Regionals (Open/Women - see additional rules for Mixed below)


The closing date and payment date will be as announced by BUCS (to your Uni) and on our UKU event pages. BUCS will NOT accept late entries - no exceptions. It may be possible for us to institute a second round of entries after the first deadline has passed if the tournaments are undersubscribed, but these will be charged (by BUCS) at 20% over the initial price - and we cannot in any way guarantee to make space for teams who have missed the BUCS deadlines. Don't mess this up!

 

For tournaments that are over-subscribed at the closing date the following rules will apply, in order:

·         First teams will get priority over second teams, and second over third etc.

·         If there is insufficient room for all first teams, places will be awarded in the following order:

o   First teams finishing in the top half of the previous year’s tournament

o   First teams who didn’t enter the previous year’s tournament

o   Remaining first teams in order of their finishing position last year

·         If there are spaces remaining after all first teams have been awarded a space, second teams will be offered places in an order based on finishing position last year, and then third teams and so on

o   Second teams with no finishing position from last year will have a lower priority than those who attended – but still above all third teams (and so on)

If the cut-off happens to fall between 2 or more teams with no finishing position from last year, a lottery will be run between those teams to determine entry.

BUCS Nationals

The closing date and payment date will be as announced by BUCS. Entry is guaranteed for all qualifying teams provided they meet this deadline.

Should any teams fail to take up their spots, the places will be filled by the next-ranked team from one of the qualifying tournaments, with priority among regions determined according to the following (in order):

1.       The region(s) not yet offered an extra place under this process which had the fewest qualification spots originally

2.       The region from which the team dropped out

3.       The strongest regions, i.e.

a.       for Division 1, the region with the highest-ranked relegated team last year – but note that rule 1 means we ignore teams from regions already awarded a dropout-spot.

b.      for Division 2, the region with the highest average finishing position in Division 2 the previous year

c.       for Women’s, the region with the highest average finishing position last year.

4.       A lottery between regions that cannot be separated by the above

Mixed

Rules will be the same as for BUCS tournaments, with the following additions:

Late entries may be accepted, providing that they improve the schedule for others. We will not allow late entries which make the numbers worse.

·         Single-institution teams at a given level (e.g. 1st, 2nd etc) will have priority entry at regionals over any teams at the same level who have players from more than one institution.

·         UKU reserve the right to move clubs to a blacklist if any of their teams default from any UKU University tournament at late notice.

o   Blacklisted 1st teams will only get into non-BUCS tournaments if there is space for all 1st teams; 2nd/3rd/4th teams from blacklisted clubs will only get a space if the tournament is undersubscribed – i.e. someone else’s 4th team will get in ahead of your 2nd team.

UKU Junior Mixed Outdoor Nationals 2019-20

Submitted by Ant on Tue, 16/07/2019 - 3:12pm
Event date: 
5 Oct 2019 (All day)
Event details: 

Schedule: https://bit.ly/2nY5tO3

Info Pack: https://bit.ly/2o9Anmn

 

We are pleased to announce that UK Ultimate will be holding our first ever UKU Junior Mixed Outdoor Nationals event on Saturday 5th October 2019. This will be a ONE DAY event, held at St Bede's Catholic College, Long Cross, Bristol.

 

This event will be played according to the specifications used at the International School Sports Federation's Ultimate World Schools Championships event:

- 5-a-side

- reduced size pitches (66m x 24m; 12m endzones)

- 2-3 gender split on pitch at all times

 

However, game duration will be varied by age category.

 

As this is the first year that we have offered this event, we strongly advise against booking any non-cancellable accommodation or transport until we are able to confirm the viability of the event and each of the divisions. We expect to be able to provide updates on this prior to the entry deadline, but no team's place at the tournament is guaranteed unless officially confirmed by UK Ultimate.

 

All teams must be mixed gender and able to conform to the required gender split throughout the tournament. Please ensure that you have sufficient players of both genders available before making your entry. Single gender schools interested in attending should contact us on events@ukultimate.com, so that we can try to match you to a suitable school of the opposite gender to enter a combined team.

 

We are aware that it can be tricky to organise logistics for something like this, especially with the timing of this event close to the summer holidays and as a new event to the calendar. We want to see as many of you there as possible, so please get in touch on events@ukultimate.com if you have any questions at all, or are struggling to meet the entry deadlines, please get in touch so that we can help you out and account for you in our planning.

 

Entry is via GoMembership. Click HERE to be taken to the event booking page.

 

Membership/Affiliation requirements:

Players playing for UKU-affiliated schools playing as school teams are not required to have membership.

All other players must have minimum Basic Membership of UK Ultimate.


Team sizes and planning:

Clubs must ensure that they have appropriate levels of adult supervision in place for the event.

Based on past experience please note that you should not enter a team unless you have at least 8 fit players (4 of each gender) able to travel, though more than this is recommended.

We also strongly recommend that teams plan to have a non-playing adult travelling with the team. There have been instances where small teams have had an injury, and a second player has had to accompany the injured player to hospital, leaving behind a team that is too small to continue. This not only spoils the tournament for the team concerned, but also for their opposition who have travelled and paid to play games, only to find they have a walkover - not ideal for anyone.


Need a team?

If you are a player or a small group of players without enough for a full team, then it may be possible to arrange for you to join up with another team; everyone involved in Junior Ultimate wants you there. HOWEVER you must explain your situation by emailing events@ukultimate.com and have UKU ratify which is the most appropriate team for you to join with. Where possible, players are linked up with players from a similar geographical area.


Multiple-teams:

Clubs/schools are welcome to enter more than one team. We don't anticipate having to limit the number of teams attending this event, but in the event that the tournament becomes oversubscribed, clubs entering multiple additional teams may find lower ranked teams placed on a waiting list.
