EUCS Bids 2020 & Rule Update for UKU Events

Following the latest WFDF appendix release, the Competitions Committee has agreed to implement the rule changes that apply to UKU events; section A7 - Receiving Fouls. The full WFDF appendix (including a track changes version) can be found here: http://www.wfdf.org/about/meeting-minutes/cat_view/26-rules-of-play/32-ultimate  

 

Also, after the EUCF decision to implement Gender Ratio Rule A at all EUF events from 2020, UK Ultimate will also be implementing the rule for UKU Nationals 2020 ONLY. Gender Ratio Rule B will continue to be used at ALL 2019-20 events EXCEPT UKU Nationals (EUCR-West). However, should both opponents agree, teams may use Rule A for their game(s) should they wish to. 

UKU University Committee Vacancies

At UK Ultimate we have a university sub-committee, made up of volunteers, which oversees the university side of ultimate. It prides itself on hearing what those from within the the university ultimate community have to say and take those opinions on board when shaping tournaments, divisions and BUCS competitions.

 

Currently, we are looking for two Regional Coordinator roles to be filled:

  • North
  • South East

New Coach Forums

What is a Coach Forum?
UKU Coach Forums are small online events (that we hope will be repeatable). They are designed as an opportunity for coaches, leaders and those interested to come together to discuss a topic. The format will generally follow an introductory presentation followed by an opportunity for participants to pose questions, discuss their own experiences and learn from others. They will usually be held over 1-2 hours of an evening.

Why would I sign up?
- you're interested in the topic
- you want to join a discussion with other coaches / leaders / players from around the UK who you may not normally get the chance to talk to
- you want UKU coaching credits
