Announcing request for GB Indoor Squad Managers 2021

EUF recently announced the 2021 European Ultimate Indoor Championships to be held in Herning, Denmark January 2021.  

Further to our announcement about GB squads in 2021, we invite applications from individuals or small groups* that would like to put themselves forwards to manage one of the GB teams entering EUIC 2021.  (*) Groups should have an identified lead individual. Please note there are 3 divisions of play at EIUC - Women's, Mixed and Men's.

GB Committee recruiting for GB Welfare Officer Role

The GB Committee are looking to recruit a GB Welfare Officer. For information on the role please see the role outline here.

 

Please note that the project to expand the GB Committee and strengthen the support network around the squads is much more about the medium- and long-term than it is about the current batch of teams, whose campaigns are all well under-way. 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.

 

To apply for any of the role please use this webform.

 

The closing date for applications is Sunday 1st March.  Depending on the response, the committee reserves the right to extend the deadline and/or request additional information from applicants.
