UKU Junior Women's Indoor Nationals 2019-20

Submitted by Ant on Fri, 13/09/2019 - 9:00am
Event date: 
16 Nov 2019 (All day)
Event details: 

The UKU Under-14, Under-17 and Under-20 Women's Indoor Championships 2019-20 will be held on Saturday 16th November 2019, at Cranford SuperDome in Hounslow. We will have 4 pitches available for the day, giving us plenty of room for teams who wish to enter.

 

Please note that, due to venue availability, this event will run from early afternoon until the evening. More accurate timings will be released once entries are confirmed, but please account for being on site from 1pm until 8pm as a maximum.


Please note that unlike many other sports, Ultimate tournaments are always played out for position all the way down - so even teams ranked towards the lower end of their division will still play a Quarter, Semi and Final in their bracket. Even the most inexperienced team will still expect to play the same number of games as the winners - you don't get knocked out early at these events. Come and join in the fun!

 

Eligibility

There is no qualifying round, and no 'minimum standard' that your team must meet - there will certainly be teams of beginners participating. If you are a newly formed school team, you are very, very much invited!

  • To be eligible for the UKU Under-20 division, you must be born on or after 1st January 2000 (i.e. not turning 20 before the end of the year).
  • To be eligible for the UKU Under-17 division you must be in Year 11 or below (the rules for UK Domestic competition differ slightly to International competition).
  • To be eligible for the UKU Under-14 division you must be in Year 8 or below.

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.


Please contact Joe Wyatt (joewyatt7@gmail.com) if there are any queries.


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 to the Junior Forum (email to: joewyatt7@gmail.com is sufficient) and have them ratify which is the most appropriate team for you to join with.

 

Please also note that eligibilty decisions are made by volunteers - we're keen to help out, but do make sure to get your requests in early to make that easier.

 

Entry

Entry for this event is NOW OPEN. Click HERE to be taken to the event booking page.

 

After the entry deadline we will post the list of confirmed teams on both our website and the Schools Newsletter.

 

We do expect that we will still have a few places remaining after that date so it is certainly worth getting in touch if you have left it late - but those spaces will be awarded on a first come first served basis and it can't be guaranteed that you'll be awarded a spot, so ideally make sure that you enter before the deadline!

 

If the tournament is oversubscribed at the closing date (unlikely, but you never know) we will prioritise first teams from each institution, and then second teams above third teams etc all the way down. If the cut-off happens to fall between teams at the same level (e.g. 4th teams from two institutions) then priority will go to whoever entered on the earliest date (or be decided by the drawing of lots if we can't separate them by date). Once the initial deadline has passed, places are confirmed, and the entry of a new first team will not 'bump' someone's 7th team anymore - it's literally first come first served at that stage for any remaining places.

 

Accommodation

Hopefully the timing will mean that the majority of teams might be able to travel on the morning of the event rather than needing accommodation. But for those where this isn't possible, places like www.travelodge.co.uk often have good deals.

 

If you are really struggling for accommodation, please get in touch on events@ukultimate.com and we will do what we can to assist with suggestions, but we do not offer accommodation as part of the tournament.

 

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 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.


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.

Our annual SKUNKS tournaments have had to have a bit of a shake up this year, but never fear we have a Halloween treat (or trick) in store for you! *This tournament will be in place of both SKUNKS Beginners and SKUNKS XMAS*

A weekend of devilish discs and ghostly grabs that appear from no where, as well as a party at the Palace of Dreams that's sure to leave you feeling sufficiently zombie like the next day...

It will feature a beginners, open and womens's divisions, so is a perfect opportunity for some practice before indoor regionals.

Still Game? | UKU Indoor Masters Nationals

Event details: 

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 12-16 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.

Accomodation and transport: 

Accommodation numbers and information can be requested if needed, but teams have been asked to find their own accommodation this year. 

Public trasport links will be provided in the captain's pack for all successfully chosen teams. 

B'n'E has been rolled out in Liverpool for the past 5 years alongside Liverpool Beginners. 

You can expect a stripped back version from previous years, but nothing would detract from the good fun, quality frisbee that would be expected from B'n'E! Loose mixed, minimum of 7, 20minute games, and a fab party to boot!
