UKU Club Mixed Indoor Nationals 2016/17

Submitted by benheywood on Mon, 25/07/2016 - 10:11am
Event date: 
4 Mar 2017 (All day) - 5 Mar 2017 (All day)
Event details: 

CXIN 2016-17 will be held on these dates at the excellent new Derby Arena (DE24 8AN).

 

They have 3 excellent courts set up in the infield of the velodrome, so it will be exciting to see all the cyclists whizzing by (but rest assured there is floor to ceiling netting to protect them from your errant throws). As befits a brand new venue like this, the facilities are excellent, and there's loads of chill-out space in the spectator seating for the velodrome. It's going to be fantastic, and located very nicely in the centre of the country.

 

There will be space for at least 24 teams.

The tournament will be Indoor Mixed, requiring a 3/2 gender split at all times. We are currently discussing whether to apply the new WFDF gender rules from the 2017 update (endzone decides ratio, rather than offence decides ratio) although all other rules will be in line with the 2013 UKU indoor rules. Please make sure you have enough of each gender!

Games will run from around 9am-5pm each day, though if demand is very high we MAY look to extend the saturday.


 

Registration is now open through the UKU Entry Form. Your place is reserved only when you have both entered AND paid. Teams who are unsuccessful in entering will of course be refunded.

The closing date will be Friday 9th Feb 2016, early enough to give those teams who are successful time to plan their logistics. If spaces remain after that date, we will of course continue to accept entries on a first come first served basis providing that doing so does not adversely affect the schedule for other teams - but we will be able to confirm places for entered teams at that time.

NOTE however that unless you finished highly at the same event last year, beating the closing date does not guarantee you a space. There is likely to be a large element of first-come-first-served in who gets in, as per that fourth criterion below - please read the entry rules properly. This particular tournament does tend to fill quickly.

We expect to have space for 24 teams. If the event is oversubscribed at the closing date, the method for determining entrants is below.

 

The venue is a normal hardcourt indoor surface - you will need clean. non-marking indoor footwear.

 

We do not expect to provide accommodation at this tournament. Please get in touch if this is a major problem for you, but we are unlikely to be able to help you much beyond putting you in touch with local players who MAY be able to help.

 


 

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

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

·         Teams finishing in the top half of the same event in the previous year will be given priority.

·         First teams will NOT get priority over second teams - it is so easy to simply change the name of a 'second team' to avoid such a rule, which would disadvantage those 'proper' clubs who have a real identity.

·         Teams will be awarded spaces based on the order of DATE (not exact time) that payment was sent. This will be assumed to be the date payment was received unless there is additional information (e.g. screenshot of transfer, postmark on stamp etc.)

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.

UKU Club Open & Women's Indoor Nationals 2016/17

Submitted by benheywood on Mon, 25/07/2016 - 9:31am
Event date: 
18 Feb 2017 (All day) - 19 Feb 2017 (All day)
Event details: 

Ravenscraig: UMWIN 2015/16 in progress at the enormous Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility 

UMWIN 2015/16 in progress at Ravenscraig in a 6-pitch configuration.


COWIN 2016/17 will be held on this date at the frankly incredible Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility near Motherwell.
(1 O'Donnell Way, Wishaw, Motherwell ML1 2TZ)

 

The venue boasts a 105x68m indoor 3G football pitch, with all the amenities you could ask for - bleacher seating down one side, balcony, cafe etc. They even thought to have that huge window you see above be north-facing and away from the sun...

We will run this event on 4 pitches, each a full 40x20m, and each with at least 5m clearance on all sides.

Really, there is no venue like this in the whole of England that we can currently access, so the trip to Scotland (approx 4.5 hours from Birmingham, as an example) is well worth it.

 

The venue hosted University Indoor Nationals this year, and extensive feedback showed that on average (and not even including the feedback from Scottish teams!) people would happily travel to this venue for that event every two years (and indeed they're going to, as we just booked it for UMWIN 2018). Many teams even from 7 or 8 hours away said they would be happy to come every year.

That student event had 6 pitches of around 36x18m as shown above, so this one with only 4 big pitches and ample surrounding space will be even better. If you don't live in Scotland, you've probably never seen indoors like this before.

 

We will write the schedule with a long saturday (9am-9pm, split in half so that no team plays all day) and a shorter sunday, with the intention of getting everyone on the road south by around 3-4pm.

 

We hope to provide SOME floor-space accommodation for teams who really need it; please only ask if you really have no other option!

 


 

Entries are now open for the Women's event, through the UKU Entry Form, and will cost £130. The initial closing date will be 9th December 2016, at which time we'll be able to confirm places for entered teams such that they can plan their transport etc. Any spaces remaining after that will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

We do not require payment upfront in order to secure your spot, but any team still on the list as of that closing date will be liable for at least 50% of the fees even if they later drop out, and any team still signed up 28 days before the event (21st Jan 2017) will be expected to pay in full (the 'main contact' from the entry form will be held responsible if there is no formal club that we can chase for the fees!). This is much more strict than usual, of course, but we feel it is very important for any replacement teams, who fill your spot, to have sufficient time to organise their travel. It's obviously not fair to take up a space that someone else might want but then to dropout too late for them to fill it! Do make sure you have a team and a robust plan before you commit.

If the event is over-subscribed at the closing date the following rules will apply, in order

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

·         Teams finishing in the top half of the same event in the previous year will be given priority.

·         First teams will NOT get priority over second teams - it is so easy to simply change the name of a 'second team' to avoid such a rule, which would disadvantage those 'proper' clubs who have a real identity.

·         Teams will be awarded spaces based on the order of DATE (not exact time) that they entered.

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.


Entries are now also requested for the Open division and will cost £130. The closing date will be Thursday 2nd February.

We do not require payment upfront in order to secure your spot, but any team still on the list as of that closing date will be expected to pay in full (the 'main contact' from the entry form will be held responsible if there is no formal club that we can chase for the fees!).

Entries are encouraged from all teams who attended regionals, regardless of finishing position, as we do anticipate that some higher finishing teams will struggle to arrange travel. The top 6 from any of the four regionals are guaranteed entry if they fill the form before the closing date, and other successful teams will have their places confirmed after the deadline.

UKU/BUCS University Men's Indoor Nationals 2016/17

Submitted by benheywood on Mon, 25/07/2016 - 8:48am
Event date: 
4 Feb 2017 (All day) - 5 Feb 2017 (All day)
Event details: 

UMIN 2016/17 will be held on this date. Note that Women's is now slated for the weekend after.

 

Division 1 will be at the fantastic (and brand new) David Ross Sports Village in Nottingham (9am-7pm Saturday, 9am-5pm Sunday), with Division 2 at the excellent olympic-legacy Jean Brown Arena in Redbridge, London (10am-5pm both days). Both venues are sprung floor, so you will need clean, non-marking indoor shoes.

 

Entries will be through BUCS - not through UKU - and will be open between the 10th and 19th of January 2017. You MUST speak to your university to enter you - neither you nor we can do it. Only your university staff have logins for the BUCS system. Do not miss the deadline - your spot may be offered to another team almost immediately, as they will need time to plan their travel etc.

BUCS info is here: http://www.bucs.org.uk/page.asp?section=15836&sectionTitle=Indoor%20Championships

If you are struggling to arrange it with your university staff for some reason, please get in touch - but if the first time you try and speak to them is 3 hours before the deadline then our sympathy will be limited!

As per usual at these Nationals events, we do not intend to provide accommodation on people's floors. If you are REALLY struggling, do get in touch and we'll try our best to put you in touch with someone relatively local who MAY be able to help - but we do not plan to organise accommodation for these events.

 

 


 

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 no longer accept late entries this year. 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.

Accomodation and transport: 

We do not intend to provide accommodation for this Nationals event.

There are a great many cheapish travelodges and similar options in this part of the country.

UKU Open & Women's Tour 2 2016

Submitted by ukuadmin on Fri, 08/07/2016 - 1:25am
Event date: 
9 Jul 2016 (All day) - 10 Jul 2016 (All day)
Event details: 

UKU OWT2 returns once again to Grove Farm, Nottingham. This is the same venue as used for OWT1 2015.  The venue doesn’t have its own postcode, but NG7 2SA will get you onto the right entry road.

 

After some significant work on the site, there are now two shiny new changing blocks, and even more pitches - well over 30, if we need them - so we really do expect to cater for every single team that wishes to enter! That doesn't mean we'll necessarily accept very late entries, as plans will have been made by then - so do make sure to meet the deadlines if you can.

 


The closing date (and payment date) for this event will be FIVE weeks in advance - Friday 3rd June 2016. (If you're wondering, we'll be too busy with Worlds to handle anything for the few weeks after that date so we need to get entries largely sorted nice and early.) After this date, places will be awarded. 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.

Please note also that teams who pull out after the closing date will be liable for 50% of the fees, and those who pull out in the last fortnight (after 24th June) will be liable for the full team fee.

Late entries will be charged an additional £30 fine - we do expect to be able to find room for as many teams as needed, but we certainly don't want to encourage everyone to enter late either!

****************************

Transport

Nottingham is roughly 2.5, 3 and 5 hours drive from London, Cardiff and Edinburgh, respectively, with 80% of the UK within 2 hours’ reach of the city. 
Nottingham is best accessed from the M1 for the majority of the country, or via the M5 & M42 for those travelling from the West. Whether taking the M1 for long distances, or joining it at the end of the M42 or M6, your best bet is to exit at Junction 24 (regardless of being Southbound or Northbound), onto the A453.

Follow this road along the River Trent for around 10 miles, before reaching the A52 (Clifton Boulevard), take this until a roundabout, taking the first exit onto Lenton Lane.

Stay on Lenton Lane right to the end, where staff will guide you to the parking area.

Note that Lenton Lane is single track, and if you come out again at busy times (or if a taxi drops you off and leaves) you will cause major headaches. Please try to take that inco account! Taxis should drop off at the Powerleague facility (Thane Rd, Nottingham NG7 2TG) which backs on to the other side of the pitches, and there is a cut-through to get you on to the site.

The Riverside Golf Centre is not part of the Tour venue.

UKU Junior (U20) Outdoor Nationals and Schools National Championships 2015-16

Submitted by benheywood on Fri, 19/02/2016 - 4:21pm
Event date: 
2 Jul 2016 (All day) - 3 Jul 2016 (All day)
Event details: 

We are pleased to announce that UKU Junior Outdoor Nationals will return to the excellent (and centrally located) Pavilion, Moor Lane, Birmingham B6 7AA.

UKU Schools National Championship Finals are a 1-day, 5-a-side event on the Saturday only (approx 10am-5pm), whereas Junior Nationals is a 2 day, full-pitch 7-a-side event.

All events are Open divisions (i.e. no restrictions on gender) - there's nothing to prevent either an all-male or all-female team, or anywhere in between. A large percentage of teams will be mixed gender, so bring whatever mix of players you like!

Note that for those schools teams who wish to play both days (for example if a school also has a team in the U20s and wish to share transport), we are able to add some school teams (or combinations of school teams if preferred) to the lower bracket of the Junior schedule on the Sunday, where in previous years they have generally found a very suitable level of competition.

 

We've had a very large number of new schools join us recently - which is great!. We are of course aware that it can be tricky to organise logistics for something like this, but we'd love to have as many of you there as possible, so do please get in touch on the email below with any questions at all and we'll do what we can to help you make it happen.

 

And don't miss the closing date - 3rd June!


 

JUNIOR NATIONALS

Player Eligibility: Born on or after 1st Jan 1997

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 10 fit players able to travel.

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 admin[at]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 are welcome to enter more than one team, but in the event that the tournament becomes oversubscribed, clubs entering multiple additional teams may find lower ranked teams placed on a waiting list.

 


UKU SCHOOLS CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS

Player Eligibility: We expect to run 2 divisions.

For the Y11 Division, all players must be in Year 11 or lower.

For the Y8 Division, all players must be in Year 8 or lower.

 

Team Eligibility:

All teams must be strictly school teams.  In the future we expect all teams will have to qualify through local qualification events.  For the time being, all school teams that wish to enter will be considered eligible.

Given that we are still not at the stage of having numerous regional qualifiers, for now we WILL accept multiple entries from one school (only if there is room of course - priority always given to 1st teams). This should NOT be taken to mean that this will always be possible in the future, but for now we see no benefit in turning teams away.

Membership/Affiliation requirements:

Players do not need individual membership provided the school is UKU-affiliated. Please contact admin[at]ukultimate.com for more information on Schools Affiliation.

Team sizes and planning:

RULES: Please remember this is a 5-a-side competition played to the “UKU-Schools” adapted rules with smaller playing area, and relatively short games.  Exact game-lengths and tournament format will depend on the number of teams that enter.
For more information please look here: http://www.ukultimate.com/uku-schools

Price: 
£135 Juniors, £70 Schools
How to register: 

Through the UKU Entry Form.

Entries are open now, and there is a closing date of 3rd June (4 weeks before the event) after which we will confirm the teams who have been awarded a place. If places remain after that date, then we will of course still accept entries, but it is nevertheless important that we do have a defined date at which teams know they can definitely book travel for their 2nd/3rd/4th teams.

If oversubscribed, priority will go to first teams, and then to 2nd ahead of 3rd, and so on; should the cut off fall between teams at the same level, then the results of last year will be used to rank the teams on the bubble. If that does not provide an answer, we will draw lots.

We understand that you may not have complete control over the financial procedures at your institution, so the 3rd June is not a payment deadline - but teams who pull out after that date may still be charged. Being signed up at that time is a firm commitment to play, and to pay.

 

Accomodation and transport: 

The last time we used this venue, we offered camping on site but it was not required by any of the teams. We therefore do not at this time intend to offer it this year. Please do get in touch ASAP if camping would be your only option - we're happy to try and set something up, if a few teams are interested - but don't leave it until the last minute and assume we'll still be able to find a solution!
