UKU U14 & U17 Open Indoor Nationals 2018 - Final Results & Spirit

Many thanks to all the teams and players who took part in U14 & U17 Open Indoor Nationals 2018, at Aldersley Leisure Village on 28th-28th January. It was a fantastic tournament, with the teams demonstrating incredible skills, athleticism and sportsmanship. Throughout the weekend, a number of parents and members of the public commented on how impressed they were by both the standard of play, and the way in which the young people conducted themselves on and off pitch.

 

In the Under-17 division, a dominant display from a very slick AirBadgers 1 team against Evolution 1 allowed them to reclaim the Trophy that had recently eluded them,  with AirBadgers 3 and Rice Frisbees taking home the Plate and Spoon prizes respectively.


 

Meanwhile, the Under-14 division saw three Airbadgers teams reach the semi-finals! Several incredibly tight games (a total point margin of 5 across the four top-4 matches) saw AirBadgers 2 triumph in universe point over AirBadgers 3 (who had knocked AirBadgers 1 out in the semi-final round). The U14 Trophy followed its U17 counterpart back to Exeter, while the U14 Plate and Spoon we awarded to DHSB 3 and Manor.

A huge ‘Well Done’ also goes to our Spirit of the Game Champions for the weekend! In the Under-17 division, the honour went to RGS Ravens. While, in the Under-14 category, AirBadgers 2 received their second piece of ‘silverware’ of the weekend!
 
Full spirit scores can be seen below*. However, please note that when entering spirit scores, if you give a team a 4 or a 0, you need to leave a comment to explain why the team deserves such an extreme score. Many teams did do this (and the written feedback is available to teams on request), but there were a number of scores which had to be removed from the system as they did not have a justification included.
 
Remember, leaving even a short comment can help your opponents to better understand what they are doing well and where they can improve, so please do try to leave one so that we can all push towards ever-more spirited games! If anyone would like a copy of the comments they received to be sent to them, please contact us at events@ukultimate.com.
 
If you have any feedback, including regarding the use of two ‘venues’ for this event, please send it to events@ukultimate.com.

*You may have noticed that we have introduced a new colour coding system. This is to more simply indicate how your team has performed in Spirit within each category so that you might be more aware of what is contributing to a possible TRIGGERING spirit score (please see the SOTG policy for more information). 

Working away from the average score of 2, your category scores will be highlighted in red if you score below 1.8Then, for overall spirit scores, your total will be highlighted in dark red should you score 8 or below (which we consider to be particularly low score and one that we encourage you to take action upon), or in orange if your score is between 8 and 9 (which is a score that we think you should take note of and look at further to avoid similar scores in the future). 

As the National Governing Body, we wish to see our tournaments played in a positive spirited atmosphere, with all teams and players upholding the Spirit of the Game, and so with this new system we hope it will encourage everyone to remember and uphold their SOTG responsibilities.

 

We look forward to seeing you at Junior Open Indoor and Junior Open Outdoor Nationals later in the year!
