University Coordinators Committee Elections

From 2014/2015 the University Coordinators Committee (UCC) will be introducing annual elections. To maintain some consistency within the committee only selected positions will be put to election each year. Positions will be awarded for a 2-year term so, under normal circumstances, elections for each position will be held every 2 years.

 

In preparation for the 2014/2015 season the UCC are looking to elect a new Scottish Regional Coordinator and Mixed Division Coordinator.

Airbadgers still Number 1

Airbadgers 1 held onto their UKU Junior Indoor National Champions title for another year after closing out a very tight final with Flux 1.  Twenty-eight teams made the trip to Wolverhampton for the competition on 1-2 March, which saw Airbadgers 2 winning the plate, Stags 2 winning the Spoon, and Flux 4 winning Spirit of the Game.  Thanks very much to all those people that helped over the weekend, but in particular to those teachers, coaches and parents that organised and transported the hundreds of players!  The level and depth of play at youth ultimate events is improving every year - and really congratulations should go to all the schools and clubs involved for their continued growth in both numbers and skills.  Full results below
