UKU Coaching Announcements

This newsletter is for information regarding all UK Ultimate coaching courses.

Calling all Potential Coaches and Coordinators, Have you seen our GB Futures Programme Announcement?

We recently announced the GB Futures ProgrammeThe announcement outlines our plans for U24, U20 and U17 squads: building a regional talent pathway structure for competitive ultimate training for these age-groups on the assumption that their events are quite likely to be cancelled, whilst leaving us in the best position to compete if they go ahead.   

 

We're currently looking to gauge interest from players and from those who may wish to fill the coach and coordinator roles at the regional hubs. If that sounds like something you could be interested in, then please read the full announcement and if you know someone who might be interested (again as either a player, coach or coordinator) please share it with them as well! 

Free Coach Forums July-August

We are continuing the UKU Coach Forums through July and into August.  To sign up to any of these events please click on the links below.

These are informal discussion groups led by Ultimate folk who've spent some time thinking about specific areas of the game and are happy to share their ideas. Please come ready to get involved in discussion, ask questions and learn from each other.  Due to the nature of the format we have limited space and have decided that recording the sessions is not appropriate.  Coach Forums are free for UKU members.

Free coach forums continuing in June

The coach forums have remained very popular through May, so we are continuing with further sessions in June - see below.  At this stage we're beginning to think we'll continue this programme for several months to come, although we are reducing the frequency a little.

To sign up to either of these events please click on the links below.
