BUCS Sport-Specific Regulations Updated

Following the request to change the Ultimate sport-specific BUCS regulations earlier in the year, we can now confirm that the proposed changes have been accepted in time for the 2019-20 season. 


The complete and up-to-date rules can be found on the BUCS website here: https://www.bucs.org.uk/compete/rules-and-regulations/sport/ultimate.html 


In summary, the two main changes are:

  1. A resolution of an unintended ambiguity about how the transgender rules would be implemented for Ultimate.
    The UK Ultimate Transgender Policy will be followed for all competitions - indoors and outdoors.

  2. Female players will be allowed to play in the Open/Men’s division, subject to having to pick between Men’s & Women’s.
    This is really intended for Women who do not have the opportunity to play competitively in the Women’s division.  

Please make sure to read the regulations for the full details on the changes that have been implemented. If you have any questions/queries, please contact the University Coordinator at unicoordinator@ukultimate.com
