UKU/BUCS University Men's & Women's Outdoor National Championships 2018/19

Submitted by megprice on Tue, 23/10/2018 - 1:12pm
Event date: 
13 Apr 2019 (All day) - 14 Apr 2019 (All day)
Event details: 

UMWON will be at the Riverside Sports Complex in Nottingham. 

 

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/umwon/home

 

ENTRIES NOW OPEN FOR ALL DIVISIONS UNTIL 21st MARCH. Full details HERE


Unfortunately, the way that the University holidays, Easter weekend and exams all come together this year has made it particularly difficult to find the “ideal” date to hold this event on. As such, we have made the decision to go with the 13th/14th April taking into account the following:

  • The Nottingham venue is only available from the 13th/14th April onwards, meaning that we are unable to use the venue on the earlier “preferred” dates of 6th/7th April and 30th/31st March.
  • Easter falls on 20th/21st April this year. Generally we aim to avoid public holidays as this can make it particularly difficult for all teams to attend.
  • Later dates are known to be particularly bad for the Scottish universities, with at least 5 or 6 universities having exam periods that overlap or start on 27th/28th April this year, which makes attending the event especially difficult or impossible for them if held on that weekend. 
  • Holiday periods vary quite widely this year - even across England - with some university holidays starting in March, and others starting on the 13th/14th April, or even as late as Easter weekend. 
  • The feedback collected from the University President Facebook groups concluded that all teams competing at the same venue (Nottingham) on 13th/14th April was preferable to splitting up the competition across several venues on one of the earlier “preferred” dates (as above).
    We will investigate splitting up the divisions at this competition in future as part of the review process with BUCS, but for 2019 at least, we felt it was best to keep everyone together as expected.


Taking the above points into account, combined with the fact that the Scottish universities have particularly suffered with the event being held on one of the later dates in the last few years, hopefully it is clear why we are going to go ahead with this date in 2019. Whilst we understand that this may not be the easiest date for some, we hope that the large amount of notice will enable teams to put the event in their calendar early so that plans can start to be made now.

 

To clarify, entries for the Men’s competitions are combined with the entry into the BUCS league, so if you do not think you will be able to attend the Nationals competition then we recommend that you speak to your AU as soon as possible. For the Women’s events, entries via your AU will be open after UWOR on Tuesday 5th March and will close on Thursday 21st March 2019. Only teams that have qualified will be eligible to enter. 

 

The Alumni Cup will not be held in 2019, however we may look to reintroduce the event in a different format in the future.

UKU University Mixed Outdoor Nationals 2018/19

Submitted by megprice on Tue, 23/10/2018 - 1:09pm
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.

How to register: 

Via the UKU GoMembership website.

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.

UWOR and the Uni Open Warm-Up events will be held on this date in 4 regional locations.

Entries are open from Tuesday 15th January until Thursday 31st January 2019.

----

Entries for the University Women's Outdoor Regionals tournaments will be open through BUCSscore for each of the events as stated above - you CANNOT enter through UKU. You must get the staff at your Athletic Union to enter through the official BUCS website. Please make sure that you enter on time and that you're entered into the correct region.

 

All Women's teams must enter in order to qualify for BUCS Outdoor Nationals. We expect to run both a Division 1 and a Division 2 at Nationals, so the large majority of teams should be able to attend, but you must attend regionals in order to be eligible for Nationals. Regionals is a required part of the BUCS season, and teams must qualify through it for the National event in April.

 

If any of the regional tournaments are oversubscribed, the team entry allocation procedure will be as described below (UKU/BUCS Entry Rules).

----

If you are interested in competing in the University Open Warm-Up events (including the SSS University Open Outdoor Championships), please complete the Entry Form HERE. The reason for this form is because unfortunately it's impossible to say how many teams we can accommodate in the Open events until we see the UWOR entry numbers. It doesn’t make sense for you to enter the using GoMembership website just yet.


Please make sure that you only complete the form if you can DEFINITELY field a team as once entries close we will confirm which out of the teams that entered via the form have been awarded a space. Once your team is confirmed for the event after the entry deadline, you WILL be liable to pay the full entry fee and the event will then be opened up on the GoMembership website for you to do so. If you have any questions, please email events@ukultimate.com.

 

Places for the University Open Warm-Up events will be awarded on a first come first served basis among all the first teams, then all the second teams, and so on, but make sure you that you complete the form HERE if you wish to be considered for a place at all.

----

UKU/BUCS Entry Rules

BUCS Regionals 

The closing date and payment date will be as announced by BUCS. If places remain open after that date, they MAY be filled on a first-pay first-play basis. UKU/BUCS reserve the right to refuse a late entry if it will compromise the tournament for others – for example by adversely affecting the schedule – and to place the team on a waiting list instead.

 

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.

 

Which region are we in?

Please note that your region is not necessarily related to where your Men's team plays in the outdoor leagues. We have 7 indoor regions (combined into 4 larger regions for Women's Indoors and Outdoors), which do not tally with the 5 outdoor Men's regions. Check carefully!

This list should now contain all the Unis - if your team is missing please do let us know and we'll update it!
