UKU Junior Open Outdoor Nationals & Schools National Championships 2018-19 - Additional Information

***Hot Weather***


The forecast for this weekend is for a continuation of the very hot weather we have been having over the past few days. Please bear this in mind when packing for the weekend. Bring sun cream and apply it regularly, make sure you have plenty of water (equivalent to 2 x 1 litre bottles, and top them up throughout the day) and bring a hat to wear (at least when on the sideline).


We recommend taking the opportunity to shelter indoors if you have any long breaks. Use the shade of trees when off the pitch or doing spirit circles.

***CUT Camp Scotland - Learn From The Best***

 

UKU Junior Open Outdoor Nationals & Schools National Championships are proud to be supported this year by CUT Camp Scotland.

 

For the first time ever, younger players in the UK will have the opportunity this summer to attend a week-long residential training camp, where they can hone their skills in the company of some of the world’s best coaches and players. Run by the University of St Andrews in conjunction with the US-based CUT Camps, it will combine the fantastic facilities in St Andrews (pitches and gym as used by Barcelona FC and many others; single en-suite rooms with full board; a beautiful location) with the camp expertise of CUT (many years’ experience running residential ultimate camps in the US, in various cities, with the biggest names in the sport coaching a fantastic curriculum).

 

With a camper to coach ratio of at most 5:1, and a fully immersive breakfast-to-bedtime schedule, players will get to spend quality time both on and off the field with these legends of the game. Already confirmed for 2019 are coaches like Goose Helton, Jesse Shofner, Kaela Helton, Claire Revere and Ben Oort – all here to help you get better.

 

The camp runs from the afternoon of Sunday 28th July through to Friday 2nd August, and can be booked through the CUT Camps Website: https://competitiveultimatetraining.com/cut-camp-scotland-2019-registration
