UKU University Mixed Outdoor Nationals 2018/19

Submitted by megprice on Tue, 23/10/2018 - 12:09pm
Event date: 
16 Mar 2019 (All day) - 17 Mar 2019 (All day)
Event details: 

UXON will be held at the University of St Andrews, Scotland.


UPDATE 15th MARCH

The event will be going ahead as planned and the schedule has now been published. Further details can be found HERE. Please make sure that you read the full announcement and keep an eye out for any further updates.

 

UPDATE 14th MARCH

Unfortunately, due to unforeseeable issues with the Leaguevine website, we are unable to use the Swiss Draw format for this year's event. We are in the process of finalising the schedule for the weekend. However, due to the recent weather and with the forecast for the weekend, we are also in the difficult position of not knowing whether or not we will have the full number of fields that we booked or if the event will even go ahead. 

 ALL teams need to continue to assume and plan for the possibility that they are playing in the first gameslot at 9am.  

We will inform you of any updates as soon as we can. Please keep an eye out on the UKU website, @UKUltimateEvent Twitter page, the Regional Facebook Groups, and the UXON Event Website for updates. 

 

Entries will be open from 11th December 2018 and will close on January 10th 2019, via the new UKU website. The early deadline should enable teams to confirm their transport and accommodation plans well in advance to avoid higher costs where possible. 

 

We will, however, also be holding a smaller, limited, event on the same weekend - the Cool Down - at the Llanrumney Playing Fields in Cardiff. More information for that event can be found here. This event is for teams that would otherwise be unable to compete. It will be at the discretion of teams to decide whether they want to compete at the main Nationals event or whether they find the Cool Down event to be more suitable for them. We want to be very clear that Nationals is in St Andrews though, and we do encourage all teams to make the journey - particularly given that the event was unfortunately snowed off last year and that we aim to hold UXON in the South in 2020! Please note that the capacity for teams at the smaller event will be limited and, if oversubscribed, teams will be awarded a spot based on their proximity to the southern venue combined with the distance from St Andrews.

 

Please note that if you are entered as of the entry closing date, you WILL BE LIABLE for the fees, even if you drop out afterwards. We MAY accept entries after that date if there is room, but only if it happens to make the numbers better for scheduling.


But what if this event (UXON) is oversubscribed?

We hope to accommodate everyone at this tournament, but should the tournament be oversubscribed at the closing date, the following rules (using the UKU/BUCS indoor rules as a basis) will apply:

 

UKU/BUCS Entry Rules

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

·         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 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.
    • 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.

Accomodation and transport: 

St Andrews University may be able to provide some accommodation for teams travelling furthest, however it is likely that not all teams will be able to be accommodated. Please keep an eye out on the Regional Facebook groups though for further information, including how to request accommodation space.

All of the event information, including venue details, schedule and spirit links, can be found on the EVENT WEBSITE here: https://sites.google.com/ukultimate.com/cxin/home

 

We hope to be able to cater for all teams, however, if the event is oversubscribed at the time of the deadline, the entry allocation procedure as outlined in the Terms & Conditions of Tournament Entry will apply.

Places MAY still be available later on a first-come first-served basis if the tournament is under-subscribed, and if the additional team(s) would not adversely affect the schedule, but no team - no matter how strong - would be guaranteed entry; if the tournament is full then the team(s) will be placed on a wait list to be awarded a space should one become available due to a drop out. Although please note that late entries may be charged an additional £30 fine.

 

Once the entry deadline has passed, the list of confirmed teams will be published on the UKU website and sent out as one of our Event Newsletters. Please do not expect an individual confirmation email - you need to keep an eye out for the announcement! However, if it’s after the deadline and you’re unsure whether your team has made it and/or you can’t find the information on the above, please email events@ukultimate.com and we will be able to confirm whether or not you have been awarded a space.

 

If any teams pull out following the specified entry deadline (as above) the penalties as outlined in the Terms & Conditions of Tournament Entry will apply.

UKU Beach Nationals 2018

Submitted by megprice on Wed, 02/05/2018 - 12:56pm
Event date: 
8 Sep 2018 (All day) - 9 Sep 2018 (All day)
Event details: 

Beach Nationals will be held on Sandbanks beach on the 8th and 9th of September 2018 hosted by Bournemouth University and Sunburn Beach Tournament committee.

 

***Beach Nationals 2018 is now open for registration*** 

The planned format is a three division, 8-team tournament for Men’s, Women’s, and Mixed. However, if there are insufficient entries for a particular division then it may not go ahead, and other divisions expanded according to demand (eg. two 12-team tournaments). This decision will be made once the closing date has passed. Please note that accommodation is not available for this tournament, so consider this in your planning when arranging a team. A list of nearby hotels and campsites will be sent to entrants. 

 

Entry is made by emailing sunburn.bournemouth@outlook.com with the following information:

- Team name

- Contact Name

- Contact Email and Phone

- Secondary Contact

- Additional relevant information (previous beach tournaments entered, finishing position, player details)

 

The deadline for submitting a team is Monday 7th August. After this date, if over-subscribed, the entry rules will be applied to teams as outlined below. Selected teams will be required to make payment of £160, which will be detailed in their confirmation email.

 

ENTRY RULES

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

- First teams from clubs who have completed Club Affiliation to the UKU will have priority over those who have not

- Teams from clubs not on the blacklist (for late dropouts at previous UKU events) will get priority over those who are

- Teams finishing in the top 1/3 of places in any 2018 beach tournament will get priority over other teams*


If there remain too many teams - which cannot be separated by the above 
- for the remaining places, a lottery will be run for ONLY those inseparable teams, for those places.

 

Second (and lower) teams will only be considered if there are spaces after the closing date, and will be allocated spots according to date of payment.

 

*We're obviously not able to check that your roster is sufficiently related to the roster for that previous tournament under the same name - but please do apply some SotG to that.
