Y Ddraig Goch 2019 - Updated & Confirmed Schedule

We are pleased to now confirm the schedule for the weekend. However, there have been a number of changes. 

 

Ouseburn Social Club requested a much lower seeding which meant that we needed to re-draw the pots from the original seeding list for the new 17-24 seeds; whilst most of the affected teams are in different pools, there are actually very few changes to teams’ start times, however you must double check the schedule to ensure that you have the most up to date information. We have also moved and rearranged a number of games on both days and fixed a problem to avoid a potential rematch in the semi-finals.

 

In summary, please make sure that you check the updated schedule so that you have the correct start times and pitch numbers for your team’s games as they are likely to have changed since the draft schedule was published. The pitch map can be found on the Event Website here. You should also familiarise yourself with the Rules & Formats page on the schedule.

We have moved to a new commercial NGB membership management system called GoMembership.  Please do not create a new account if you already had one on the old system.  Your details have been migrated to the new system but you will need to reset your password. More information...

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.
