Junior Indoor Championships Round-Up - Thanks For Your Support!

Over 500 Youth Ultimate players between the ages of 10 to 19 took part in UK Ultimate’s recent Indoor National Championship Events across six divisions (Under 14, Under 17 and Under 20 for both Open and Women’s) which were held between November 2018 and February 2019.

The top rankings in each division were dominated by some of our longest-standing school teams. For the third year running, the titles were shared between AirBadgers (St Peter’s School, Exeter) and Flux (Twycross House School, Twycross), with even Under 17 players now seasoned veterans attending their fourth or fifth edition of these competitions.

We were also excited to welcome seven teams from newly-playing schools or Junior Clubs to their first of these events. Several of these have been able to attend thanks to UK Ultimate’s School Affiliation Scheme which offers free discs to schools to help them get started with Ultimate, supported by donations from players and the public.
