Please note that a venue is still in the process of being finalised for JXON in October. We are unsure whether this competition will go ahead, particuarly considering the short notice. However, if your team is interested in attending a Junior Mixed Outdoor Nationals competition in October, it would be really helpful if you could please let us know by emailing events@ultimate.com. We will aim to put on a competition for all three age groups (U14, U17 and U20) if there is enough interest and if we are able to secure a venue. 

 

If you have any questions regarding any of the above, please drop us an email.

Thank you to everyone that came to the 2021 UKU Nationals Championships! It was a fantastic weekend and it was really great to see so many of you at the event after such a different season to what we're used to. We hope that you all had a really good time and enjoyed it as much as we did!

UKU University Committee Vacancies

At UK Ultimate we have a university sub-committee, made up of volunteers, which oversees the university side of ultimate, the UKU University Committee (UKUUC). It prides itself on hearing what those from within 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 Coordinators and Open Division coordinator roles to be filled:

  • Scotland

  • South East

  • Open Division

GB Committee recruiting for GB Appointments Manager

The GB Committee are looking to recruit a GB Appointments Manager to manage and coordinate the appointment process for all GB squad managers, coaches and leaders. They will work closely with the GB Performance Director to ensure that there is a fair and robust appointment process to identify the best candidates to lead each GB squad. As the GB Futures Hubs programme develops we expect that part of this role will involve supporting the appointment process for GB Futures Hubs volunteer positions.

 

It is expected that this role will involve establishing and maintaining a pool of volunteers to form specific selection panels for events where GB squads will be attending. For more information on the role please see the role outline here.

UKU Clubs Map is Live!

We’re pleased to be able to launch the UKU Clubs Map, which is a map of active Ultimate clubs across the UK.

WMUCC Qualification

Thank you to all of the teams that confirmed their interest in WMUCC qualification!

 

As we don’t yet know the number of bids we’ll receive in any division, or even if all of the divisions are going ahead, we are proceeding on the assumption that we’ll receive at least one bid in each. 

 

We have also determined that with the continuing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we will continue to use smaller fixture dates where possible. As such, this means that we have scheduled WMUCC qualification in line with how the Challenge League & National Series fixtures have been managed so far. For the majority of the divisions, we only have a small number of teams interested so these teams will be expected to play each other on a single fixture day. However, for the Master Mixed division, due to the high number of teams interested, each team will be required to play on two different fixture dates so that all of the games can be played. The full details of what this looks like in practice can be seen in the WMUCC qualification document linked to below.
