Expanding GB support team

Further to our previous announcement we are really delighted to welcome three new people to the growing team of people that support our GB squads - please see below.  Sadly nobody so far applied for the GB Finance Officer role.  If you have some experience of accounting/bookkeeping - or maybe just love spreadsheets as well as Ultimate - please take a look and get in touch if you’d like to help.  

Georgina Morrison is joining the GB Committee as Welfare Officer.  Geegee has been involved with several clubs over the last few years - Guildford, Horsham, Reading, as well as uni clubs at Surrey and Birmingham. She played with the GB u24 mixed team in Perth, and with Reading at WUCC 2018.  In applying for the role Geegee explained that she was really pleased to see this role being created, and volunteered her support because she views each individual players' physical and mental welfare as being of the utmost importance.

Lee Rhodes and Ashika CV kindly volunteered to pick up and share the Sport Science coordination work.  There is plenty to do. Lee has worked as a physiotherapist in sport for 20 years, including 6 years with a Premier League football club in addition to the rather more glamourous assignments at UKU tournaments and with several GB Ultimate teams.  Ash is doing a masters in Psychology of Sports and Exercise, and has been playing Ultimate with St Marys University for several years as well as some coaching in a local school.

Thanks in advance to all three of them.

Expressions of Interest for GB Grand Masters players

Following the announcement that European Ultimate Masters Championships (EUMC) 2019 is to be hosted in Madrid, October 17th-20th and will include a Grand Masters Division we'd like to explore the interest in a GB Grand Masters team for both that event and for the World Masters Ultimate Championships 2020 (Gold Coast, Australia).

 

Please complete this form to express an interest in playing for this squad and pass it on to anyone else you think may be interested in being part of the squad.

Recruiting for new GB Committee and support roles

The structure of international ultimate is such that we always have active GB teams. In some years, the GB Programme comprises 21 squads, and we believe this maximum number may yet increase further. Across the squads, the programme comprises 500+ players and numerous squad managers, coaches, and volunteers. We have an increasing number of practitioners providing support to GB squads.

In 2018, we announced a number of changes to the way we organise GB squads and the overall GB programme: https://www.ukultimate.com/story/gb_committee_announcement.  We have been working on these changes, alongside setting up the 21 squads that will be competing in 2019.  Today, we are starting the process to recruit the roles listed below. We want to emphasize that many of the roles related to supporting our GB teams do not require individuals that have played (or aspire to play for) GB teams.
